Holiday Cottage Description
Sandpiper Cottage is a welcoming and cosy traditional Yorkshire Dales holiday cottage located on the hillside overlooking the Swale Valley. The nearby village of Low Row nestles amongst the famous flower meadows of Swaledale in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Sandpiper is an end terrace holiday cottage of three and is accessed via a farm track (250 yards from the road), and as the end-terrace, allows you to enjoy the beauty of Swaledale from this prime spot.
Historically this area of Swaledale was known for its thriving lead mining industry so you will not be surprised that Sandpiper was part of a former lead miner’s cottage. This dales holiday cottage still has many of the original features but has been lovingly decorated to a high, modern finish and is heated by super warm ceramic radiators throughout with the added benefit of a multi-fuel stove.
Sandpiper is an extremely spacious holiday cottage, with a fantastic open plan downstairs living area. The living room is welcoming after an adventurous day touring the dales, as seats up to three people very comfortably on a new comfy sofa in front of the warmth of the traditional multi-fuel stove. The living room leads through to the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is a cook's dream as has an extensive range of cooking utensils, pans and crockery that will be most adequate for the duration of your break.
You’ll love dining at the table that sits in front of the oringinal barn doors with fabulous views of the dales that can be enjoyed over breakfast, lunch and dinner. On the warmer days the garden furniture and barbeque will facilitate dining alfresco with panoramic views of Swaledale. There is also a chiminea for additional warmth when it becomes a little chilly, this will enable you to enjoy the great natural outdoor enviroment that little bit longer.
The gallery style master bedroom is located above the living room, with the small single bedroom and bathroom accessed from it. This makes Sandpiper holiday cottage ideal for a couple enjoying a romantic or action packed break or a family with one child. A baby can also be accommodated as a travel cot is available.
Sandpiper Cottage is one of our dog friendly holiday cottages, one well behaved dog welcome. There are a number of dog friendly pubs in the area and plenty of walks locally which make this dales holiday cottage an ideal choice if you are looking for pet friendly accommodation.
Sandpiper has private parking to the rear of the holiday cottage and is located about a 10 minute walk from the local pub, The Punch Bowl. The Punch Bowl was refurbished only a few years ago, and offers great hospitality, superb food and excellent ale!
