Bridge View Cottage
|Set opposite the bubbling beck, which flows into the River Swale, this lovely cottage in Gunnerside is recently renovated to make it a charming, cosy place to which to retreat after a day’s energetic walking in the gorgeous countryside nearby. With open stonework, exposed roof trusses and beautiful reclaimed pine floorboards, you can breakfast with the morning sun pouring into the unexpectedly spacious upstairs living/dining room, or relax outside on long summer evenings in the small front garden, watching the swallows wheeling above. A delightful bathroom in which to relax, and tastefully decorated double bedroom downstairs mean you can make the most of the views overlooking the village and beck from the window seat upstairs. A multi-fuel stove completes the idyllic picture!
Sorry, no smoking or pets. Sleeps 2.
