Holiday Cottage Description
Intake Cottage is a traditional 17th century Yorkshire Dales Holiday Cottage, which sits in an elevated, peaceful position between the villages of Low Row and Gunnerside, in Swaledale, surrounded by sensational views of the Swale Valley within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Intake Cottage was part of the original farmhouse but has since been converted into a charming dales holiday cottage. Over the years the owners have taken great care in refurbishing and maintaining their delightful holiday home. The refurbishments include a modern bathroom and a traditional shaker style kitchen which features a dishwasher and fridge freezer.
As you arrive at the holiday cottage there is off road parking for one car. The entrance to Intake Cottage is through a large secure gate which takes you into the good sized and well maintained country garden. The garden is south facing and enjoys stunning, uninterrupted views across the local farmland, the River Swale, and the fells and dales beyond. This is an ideal location to enjoy dining alfresco during the warmer summer months, especially when the famous Swaledale wild flower meadows are at their most striking. What’s more, the garden also features a beautiful summer house. The summer house can be enjoyed all year round, and provides the perfect shelter on a blustery day. It’s in a great spot to soak up the natural environment, watch the surrounding wildlife or simply offers you seclusion to read and relax.
The cottage entrance takes you straight into the cosy living/dining room which comfortably seats up to four people, with fantastic views from the south facing front. The living room also boasts a very grand, cast iron open fireplace, which exudes warmth and adds to the cosy atmosphere. The decor is traditional, with beamed ceilings and the original stone flagged floor.
To the left of the living/dining room there is the Kitchen. The kitchen is large and greatly resembles the traditional farmhouse style, with a Belfast sink in front of the window, plenty of work space and storage on traditional stone pantry shelves. You shall find the Kitchen fully equipped with all you should need for your stay and more.
To the rear of the living room is a staircase which leads up to the sleeping accommodation. Immediately at the top of the stairs is the double bedroom. The double bedroom is spacious and has wonderful views from the large sash window across the Swale Valley. To the right of the room there is a door which leads to the single bedroom with stowaway bed, which also has a large sash window with fantastic views to the front of the holiday cottage.
Intake Cottage is in an ideal location to explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park. From the doorstep local walks and bike routes can be accessed. The local pub, The Punch Bowl is situated approximately fifteen minutes’ walk from Intake Cottage. The Punch Bowl has been refurbished within the last few years and is renowned for its cuisine all year round should you wish for a night off cooking.

Had an absolutely stunning week! the cottage is fabulous and totally spotless! The view is breath-taking and we eagerly hope to return wanting to test drive Swallow Byre next time! Enjoyed baking bread and making ox cheek casserole. Loved the fish and chip van calling on Friday at 7:30 beautiful fish and chips to eat on the patio watching the sun go down. So much more to say…but until next time thank you Dorothy and Nigel.

We really enjoyed staying in your lovely cosy cottage. Fantastic open fire and wonderful views. One of the best cottages we’ve stayed in. Enjoyed the walk from Muker to Keld, then back along the corpse way. Beautiful scenery. We hope to return sometime soon.

We’ve been really lucky with the weather, sunshine every morning, really unusual for November. Enjoyed the summerhouse in the daytime and the fire in the evening. Can highly recommend the Reeth to Grinton walk, nice easy scenic walk for this time of year. The Punch Bowl is excellent for an evening meal. Fireworks night at Reeth was a memorable occasion! We’ve had a very enjoyable few days, thank you for everything.
