Unforgettable Strands View - a 5-star stone barn conversion offering far-reaching views across the iconic Swaledale valley from every room!

Completely renovated, this property has style and sophistication throughout: from the luxurious underfloor heating to the elegant overhead lighting, and everything in between… With its glorious garden and terrace giving panoramic views, through to its warm and modern interiors, you will feel at home in an instant.

The cosy living room is the heart of the home, with plush sofas set around the large fireplace - perfect for curling up with a bottle of red wine. And spend your afternoons taking tea, or simply relaxing with a good book, in the soft seats by the picture windows of the oak-floored gallery – maybe enjoying a delicious slice of fruit cake with Wensleydale cheese from the nearby Hawes Creamery too?

For entertaining, the incredible bespoke kitchen incorporates a huge range cooker, superb appliances, and a large granite central island to make preparing a meal for friends or family simply a pleasure. The light-filled dining area, with views over the meadows to the River Swale, is ideal for enjoying a memorable meal - and planning tomorrow’s adventure.

For the playful among you, the snug provides a games console and even a table football - while others of you may appreciate peace and quiet in the study area, with superfast Wi-Fi internet for getting a little work done, or otherwise even penning a new novel!

Upstairs, Strands View has three individually designed bedrooms, each having uninterrupted views over the meadows to the hills beyond. The luxurious master suite is the star of the show here, with its star-gazing skylight, fabulous rainfall shower and private dressing area. The two further bedrooms are just as spacious and inviting, with warm tones and filled with natural light. As for the master suite, their superb beds can each be prepared as super-king or twin beds to accommodate any group. And the family bathroom is perfect for a long, bubbly soak after a wonderful day walking or cycling in the Dales.

Strands View has countless options for a relaxed coffee, whether sitting on the comfy chairs of the oak gallery or at the picnic table on the lawn. An al fresco evening meal on the terrace is magical too: watching the sun set at the head of the valley before thousands of stars become visible on a clear night. And for a cosy addition, try pre-dinner drinks or games in the delightful summer house! 

For outings, there’s plenty to enjoy in the local area too. The picturesque villages of Gunnerside, Muker and Reeth, and the market towns of Richmond, Hawes and Leyburn, are nearby with excellent pubs, restaurants and tea rooms to try. The area boasts a wonderful choice of walks for all abilities, and the Coast-to-Coast walking trail and the ‘Swale Trail’ for family mountain biking both pass close to the property. Whether you’d like a gentle stroll, a longer hike or a day pedalling through spectacular scenery, simply step out of Strands View’s front door to enjoy a beautiful route!


Excellent cottage, good location with fantastic views of the countryside

Mrs Maria D,

This was our second visit and it’s probably the favourite of all the holiday cottages we’ve stayed in over the years. Just one issue is the hot water and I’ll speak to your office when back at work tomorrow.

Mr Nigel W,

When booking cottage it stated online that it was dog friendly and dog was allowed anywhere down stairs.When we got there we found a notice on the wall telling us our dog was to be kept to the kitchen.As the week went on the dog was getting more and more stressed so decided on Thursday we would come as our dog was getting more and more stressed.If we had known he was going to be confined to the kitchen we would not have booked this cottage.

Mr William H,

First and foremost, this was a lovely holiday cottage and we really enjpyed our time there. Second, things do come up from time to time, whether you are home or traveling. But what made the difference for us was the responsiveness of your customer service team when we contacted you. Excellent communications and responses were greatly appreciated.

Mr Ross R,

We are satisfied with every aspect of the holiday. The property was excellent and ideally suited to our needs. Communication good and booking arrangements efficient .a 5 star experience.

Mrs J J,

Fantastic home in a great location. Excellent walks from the door. We loved our walk to Reeth via the Swaledale Trail with coffee and cake at the cafe at the bike shop just outside Reeth. We hope to return as we all loved it here. Its a lovely house in a great location with a high standard of furnishings and decor. The layout of the house worked perfectly for us. We loved the numerous walks from the door and the great views from the house. We hope to return.

Mrs C,

Fell in love with this place as soon as we arrived. Just lovely. Oh my gosh, the views! The perfect place for us all to just be, and spend precious time, together. Loved the walks, the cafe at Keld, lunches at the King’s Head, cake and homemade lemonade at the tea shop in Gunnerside and swimming at Wain Wath! … Rained every day but who cares! Hope to all be back very soon, especially as we’re not too far away! Thank you!
