Corner House - A traditional North Yorkshire Dales stone house - in the heart of Swaledale


Details of the Cottage

Situated in the middle of the village of Grinton, opposite the very popular Bridge Inn and the beautiful St Andrews Church (known as 'the cathedral of the Dale') Corner House is a traditional stone house, combining features like beamed ceilings and open fireplaces, with all the comforts of modern living such as dishwasher, washing machine and whirlpool bath, to make your stay as comfortable as possible. A stream behind the house runs down to the River Swale, about 200 yards away, giving opportunities for riverside walks along part of the Coast to Coast path. There are wonderful views from all the principal rooms and the countryside of Swaledale is right on your doorstep, with walks to suit ramblers and strollers alike. Within easy walking distance is Reeth, 'the Capital of the Dale', with its huge village green, surrounded by cafes, pubs, restaurants, craft and gift shops. Swaledale boasts several summer countryside shows, and the Swaledale Music Festival in May/June.

Corner House is located in Richmond, Yorkshire / Yorkshire Dales

Swaledale is the most northerly of the Yorkshire Dales, very close to the border with Durham.The top end of the dale is truly wild, with high fells, and the road up the dale leads over and down into Cumbria. This is wonderful walking and touring country - and the home of the Tan Hill Inn, the highest pub in England. Coming back down the dale, the villages of Keld, Muker and Thwaite are typical dales villages, with Muker the home of the famous Swaledale Woollens shop. Spectacular passes lead over into Wensleydale and a drive across the Buttertubs Pass is a never-to-be-forgotten experience. Between Muker and Gunnerside, an old Viking settlement, is Ivelet, a tiny hamlet with a mediaeval bridge, which must not be missed. Reeth, only a mile from Grinton, is a small village with a huge village green, with pubs, cafes and craft shops around it. And there is plenty to do a little further afield. Or you could just stay in the cottage and relax, with the occasional foray out to the Bridge Inn !
