|An exquisite gem of a cottage in tiny Marrick with wonderful views overlooking the rolling fields of Swaledale, Tetheran Cottage has been lovingly cared for by its owners of 35 years. Beautifully decorated, with an eye for Dales charm and comfort, the cottage is an attractive barn conversion, with three bedrooms, and antique furniture. It has a cosy feel, yet has amazing views from all its windows; the south-facing windows at the front overlook the dale, while the kitchen window looks towards an old chapel and has inquisitive lambs peering in at springtime! Tetheran has a spacious garden (dog-friendly), with garden furniture, and a lovely open fire for chilly nights. A peek at the photos of the cottage will convince you a holiday here will be the perfect relaxation you need from your everyday life - comfort, charm and fantastic views of beautiful Swaledale! Sleeps 5. One well-behaved dog welcome! Sorry, no smokers.
