About the property

Marrick, Swaledale, North Yorkshire, England - South Facing, Quiet Village Location

Rose Cottage has a south facing terraced front garden with fantastic views across the dale. Entry to the cottage is via a useful porch, designed to accommodate muddy boots and/or for drying off the beloved pet! The kitchen diner is homely and furnished in farmhouse style with a traditional Yorkshire flagged stone floor and an Esse range cooker (same as an Aga). A cosy beamed sitting room provides a relaxing place to "get away from it all" and relax. There is a utility room which provides space for storing outdoor equipment such as climbing or cycling gear. The stairs lead to a newly refurbished shower room and then upwards on to a separate cloakroom with WC and wash basin. The two double bedrooms are at the front of the house and both provide beautiful views across the dale to the opposing hills. Situated in a lovely quiet and friendly village Rose Cottage is ideally placed for those wishing to walk the many footpaths, cycle the quiet lane or simply relax and watch the world go by.

About Gay Sayles

Rose Cottage was my much loved family home and has belonged to my family since 1946. I now live in Suffolk but have maintained Rose Cottage after I inherited it for our personal family and friends holidays. I have chosen now to offer Rose Cottage as a holiday home so that others can enjoy and share the experience of this stunning and beautiful area of outstanding natural beauty.

Gay Sayles purchased this cottage in 1949

Why Gay Sayles chose North Yorkshire

Love the area and its people

What makes this cottage unique

Relaxing in peace and quiet. Lovely walks through meadows and along the many footpaths with my dogs.

Winter pub lunches with roaring real fires and good food.

Chatting to local farmers and others in the bar of the local pub at Grinton.

A great place to stay. Quiet location away from it all with stunning views over swaledale

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful time in rose cottage as the house was well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday in the yorkshire dales. Located on the coast to coast walk with shops 2 miles away in Reeth and 7miles from Richmond it was an idea space to relax and unwind.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review. So pleased you had a good holiday. At this time of year there are often lambs playing in the field in front of the cottage I hope you had the pleasure of their fun and games. I hope you will come back to Swaledale and stay again at Rose Cottage in the future. Gay

Lovely and cosy cottage. Everything you need is there-wifi, freeview TV, washing machine etc

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time (2 adults, 2children).

The place is fairly isolated (which suited us), but there is a town ("Reeth") just 3 miles down the hill. Top Tip - If you have iff'y knees and a dodgy ankle like me, then use that walking stick in the foyer, as that hill is rather steep coming back.

We used Reeth for a pub lunch in the Black Bull Pub. They had a nice Carvery and open log fire to warm up (we were there in February).

Some of the scenery was stunning, and there's lot's of other walks to be had.

The bed's, we all agreed, were extremely comfortable (that may have had something to do with us all being shattered every night with the walking, hahaha).

All in all, a great country break, which even my two kid's enjoyed.

I'd recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a nice break, in very comfortable surroundings and with plenty of scenic walks.

So quaint and in a lovely peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

This is a very quaint typical Yorkshire stone cottage that has obviously had quite a few renovations in it`s 250 or so year history.

The cottage is very comfortable and warm and well fitted out with everything we needed for a truly restful stay.

The location is magic with lovely views across farmland and Swaledale.

What a change for city slickers to be woken with the bleat of sheep or the mooing of cows in the morning.

There are beautiful country walks available from the door. All over a truly enjoyable holiday and I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone looking for a peaceful and restful country holiday.

Peace and quiet

  • 3 of 5

a cosy well equipt cottage in a tranquil location.With lovely views over fields, incredibly quiet which was lovely.we had two teenagers with us, and they enjoyed going for walks and exploring the area. Local shops a few miles away which is fine if you have a car, and not far to the lovely town of Richmond, closer by is Reeth which is also worth a look. The aga style range in the kitchen was quite easy to get the hang of although there was also a microwave with convection.perfect for a laid back break.(if you spot a 3 legged black cat, he is very friendly )

Owner's Response: I am pleased that you got the hang of the range cooker. It makes fantastic casseroles, slow cooked and ready when you return hungry from a long walk or day out.
