About Judith Dower

Joiner's Cottage belonged to my parents and was originally the joiner's shop. I inherited the cottage and have updated it over the years, to make it a comfy and homely cottage, perfect for Dales holidays.

Judith Dower purchased this Cottage in 1949

Why Judith Dower chose Richmondshire District

There are many walks direct from the door, all amid the stunning landscape of Swaledale. The only crowds you'll find here are flocks of sheep and a few cows! Breathe in the invigorating air and admire the wonderful meadow flowers and stone barns and walls. Explore the single-track roads with amazing views overlooking the dale and relax with a pint of locally-brewed real ale at one of the cosy nearby pubs.
