With breathtaking views across the Swaledale countryside and the River Swale, you’ll be hard pushed to leave this stunning converted stone barn in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Delectable dales

There really are views of Swaledale from every side of Strands View. If you’re more inclined to sit and paint or photograph what you see rather than explore it, you won’t miss much in terms of view. Every room has a view and you’ll want to enjoy it from every room too. For every room has had the love and attention to parallel the beautiful surroundings. There are floor to ceiling windows in the sitting room and in the master suite you can soak up the stars from the skylight as you nod off into a deep and dreamy sleep of an evening.

Underfloor heating, a bespoke kitchen and a cosy snug room (with study area) will tick a few boxes for the grown ups, while the youngest in your tribe will be enthralled by the games console and table football table in the snug. The outside terraces at Strands View continue a theme of gazing over yonder lushness while muggy summer evenings can be spent in the summer house enjoying a selection of outdoor games to raise the competitive spirit. For the foodies amongst you, the local Hawes Creamery should sate any cravings for a cheese board with dinner or that local delicacy of Wensleydale served with fruit cake. If you're looking for cosy pubs, you'll be spoilt for choice in the Dales- head to nearby Gunnerside, Reeth or Muker for local, homemade food, roaring fires and a proper Yorkshire welcome. 

Relaxation awaits either side of the threshold at Strand Views. For those who can tear themselves away, the Swale Trail is a relatively new and not too challenging mountain bike trail passing nearby. From the door there are gentle walks and generous hikes to explore this stunning area further.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

The bedrooms on the first floor begin with the luxurious master suite with its stargazing skylight. In the depths of winter, this is possibly the most romantic way to experience the dark skies of the Yorkshire Dales. Breakfast in bed is a must while you decide which dale in sight you’ll choose to tackle today. You’ll soon be torn between lingering under the rainfall shower, debating your outfit of the day in the private dressing room, or getting out and about. The other two bedrooms can be super king or twin rooms according to your requirements. That post-hike Epsom salt soak calls from the serious depths of the family bathroom tub. For groups of up to eight, the impressive sofa in the snug converts into either twin beds or a super king.

To maintain the uninterrupted views from this property please note there are steep drops at edges of the lawned areas and car park.

Past Customer,

Easy to book and the website has full details of all the properties one would like to visit. On the one occasion we did need to contact the company, they were very efficient and friendly. The property, Strands view, was fabulous. A great place if you have a small group, we had 5 in our party. Three beautifully appointed large bedrooms each with king size beds. The owners have gone to a lot of trouble with this family home. We felt very comfortable and there was plenty in the way of books, games etc., to keep us amused if the weather closed in. You just couldn't take your eyes of the wonderful views, one of the many reasons we return to Swaledale every year.

Mrs Bonny L,

A superb, well equipped cottage with stunning views. We will definitely be back.

Mrs Helen B,

This is by far the best property that we have rented in years and years. The beds were SO comfortable, the kitchen extremely well equipped and for once we had plenty of empty cupboard space to put our supplies. Also, for the first time ever, we had a really large fridge as well as a really large freezer. The entire property is an absolute delight and WHAT a view! Nearly forgot to say that we had a really lovely welcome pack - tea, coffee, milk, chocolate biscuits and a bottle of decent wine.

Mrs Ann) M,

Beautiful House with amazing views. Exceptionally well equipped with lovely outdoor space. Enjoyed our stay and hope to return at some stage - The Hergenhan's, Graham's + Charlie the Dog (London)

Perfect family accommodation. We are aged from six months to ninety. Lovely views and local walks. Good food at the Punchbowl. Enjoyed our visit immensely

We were here for what we were told was the most snow in 5 years! It was a real winter wonderland outside and lovely and cosy inside. We got exactly what we wanted which is a lovely place to chill and relax in beautiful scenery. Thank you
