A gem of a cottage in tiny Thwaite, in upper Swaledale, Westholme is beautifully furnished and decorated, with all the comforts of home.

As the owner says, small, but perfectly formed, the cottage sleeps up to four people in two double bedrooms.

There are electric storage heaters, and an open fire in the living room, so the cottage is a lovely, cosy place to return to after a hard day’s hiking in the surrounding wonderful scenery.

Dogs are most welcome (the owner even provides dog throws to put on furniture!), free wifi, parking space and great walks direct from the door, including on the Pennine Way.

A charming holiday cottage in beautiful Swaledale, the most northerly of the Yorkshire Dales.
