A gem of a cottage, with beautiful views over Swaledale, Sandpiper is recently refurbished to make it a high-quality holiday home.

Sleeping 3, in a kingsize double bedroom on a mezzanine floor and a small single bedroom off, the cottage is a perfect retreat for a relaxing holiday, whether for a couple, or a family.

Surrounded by pastureland full of wildlife, the cottage has its own south-facing terrace looking up- and down-dale and towards the hills opposite.

A woodburning stove makes the living room cosy and welcoming, especially after a day’s walking on the hills. Situated just above Low Row, along a track (there are no access issues), the cottage is only a few minutes’ walk from the Punch Bowl Inn and in an ideal spot to appreciate the greenery of beautiful Swaledale.

Breathtaking views and a completely kitted out cottage makes Sandpiper a home from home, a haven, delightful.Mr and Mrs B. Cambridge
