Beautiful cottage surrounded with stunning scenery

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is an absolute delight. Spotlessly clean and absolutely everything you could possibly need for enjoying a self catering holiday. High quality furnishings and each room had been carefully colour coordinated. Cannot speak too highly of the accommodation.

Wonderfully Cosy, Comfortable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in beautiful Swaledale was greatly enhanced by the accommodation we found in Rose Cottage. It is cosy, warm, extremely well equipped and very clean. We could not have wanted a better place to stay for our short break and will not hesitate to revisit some time in the future. Thanks.
