An elegantly renovated Grade II listed home set in the midst of the Yorkshire Dales, Heatherdene is the essence of heart-warming Yorkshire country living.

Set amidst scenic pastoral land within the sweeping Yorkshire Dales National Park, Heatherdene is every nature lover’s dream.

Hewn from warm York stone, Heatherdene is a Grade II listed former mine manager’s home set in Swaledale, in the northern Yorkshire Dales. Expect some curious looks from the local sheep, who graze freely on the common land that envelopes the welcoming cottage, as you soak up the sweeping views of Alfred Wainwright’s beloved Dales from its south-facing terrace or the inviting sitting room, complete with capacious sofas and a wood-burning stove.

For all its history and authentic country charm, Heatherdene is every inch a contemporary property: the kitchen, with its beamed ceiling and flagstone floors, boasts an electric AGA and all the gadgets aspiring chefs could wish for; underfloor heating in the sitting room ensures a toasty welcome even before you stoke the fire; the dining room is a convivial spot to toast the day; the utility and boot room, accessed via a rear entrance, confine laundry, muddy boots and wet coats; while the spacious bedrooms – two with king size beds plus a twin – boast country views as well as Hypnos mattresses to guarantee blissfully comfy nights.

From vintage rugs and bespoke blinds to antique dressers, Heatherdene is the epitome of stylish, authentic country living. Keen walkers will take particular delight in its location, on Wainwright’s ‘Coast to Coast’ trail, near the Pennine Way and with walking trails spreading out in virtually every direction from the doorstep, while cyclists will want to tackle the local mountain bike trails and famous Buttertubs Pass, described by Jeremy Clarkson as “England’s only truly spectacular road.”

Whether you’re here to walk, cycle, indulge your creative side or simply sit back and relax, be sure to take some time to pack the provided picnic hamper, cool box and rug for lunches al fresco, treat yourself to a BBQ on the terrace and stroll down to the neighbourhood gastropub, the acclaimed Punch Bowl Inn, for delicious seasonal, local food and a spot of local gossip.
