Accommodation Description

Mill End Cottage, Gunnerside is exactly that! This Yorkshire Dales holiday cottage is situated at the right gable end of The Old Corn Mill which dates from at least the 17th Century. A quirky restoration sympathetically designed by the current owners which offers a traditional Yorkshire style of welcome from the sound of the tumbling and rolling Gunnerside Beck to the friendly glow from the multi-fuel stove housed in the Lounge inglenook.

As you enter this dales holiday cottage and step into the fitted kitchen and dining area for four, you feel very much part of the Dales’ history as you can see the Beck flowing past from the dining area window and can imagine that wheel being pushed round and round. The stone flagged floors lead you into the Lounge with comfortable seating, wooden floor, beamed ceiling, stone walls and sash style windows all lovingly resourced. Within the lounge there are additional doors to the back of the holiday cottage. These doors when open can only be used as a viewing point to the beck due to the steep and rough bank. However when the doors are open guests can absorb the view and sound of the beck from the safe comfort of the lounge.

The wooden staircase leads to the first floor of the hoilday cottage. On the right is the double bedroom with vaulted beamed ceiling and windows which outlook the court yard, flower borders and pond.

The first door on the left is the entrance to the second bedroom with wooden floors….on this level here there is a built in small wardrobe for the storage of hanging clothes with the benefit of a chest of drawers for smaller items, then another staircase to the small but accommodating twin room with velux window. As you return to the landing area, the second door on the left opens to a spacious shower room with w.c., basin, heated towel rail and large shower cubicle with the facility of a power shower for relaxing those muscles after a strenuous hike or cycle ride.

From the kitchen door of the holiday cottage you can stroll around Gunnerside Village known for its tranquil setting now, but once it was a busy centre for the thriving lead mining industry of years gone by, In the late 8th century the area was a Norse settlement and the subjects ruled by Gunnar a Viking Chieftain.

On Friday nights the Fish Van arrives for that tasty evening meal to take home. During your visit you can taste the delights of the local café/bistro, Ghyllfoot Tea Room with home cooked food and take away meals and traditional ales and great food from the Kings Head pub. On your return to Mill End Cottage on the left you will pass the Old Working Smithy and Museum where the sixth generation of Black Smith still works and farms in the area. From this point one can only admire the surrounding panorama and hills of what many consider to be the gem of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The courtyard, gardens, pond and  BBQ are shared facilities and there is even an outhouse for the secure storage of cycles and ample parking behind secure gates. This cosy dales holiday cottage is suitable for couples or a small family, but it is suggested that the second bedroom would not be advantageous for the infirm or children under the age of twelve. Care would need to be taken by any water’s edge and children should be supervised at all times when close to the pond or nearby Beck.

  2. Chris

    Friendly and helpful host, cosy accomodation in a wonderful location. Thank you!
    Thanks again for a lovely stay. Unsurprisingly, my mum hasn’t stopped talking about it 🙂

  3. Nicole

    We had a fabulous stay, the cottage was lovely and cosy. We were able to head off walking for the day and return for a well earned pint at the Kings Head. As a family we had a great time together enjoying some of the most beautiful dales scenery. Well worth a visit. The host was attentive and very helpful.

  7. Fabian

  8. Barbara

    This was the perfect place for a quiet few days. Boys loved exploring and being wild. Dog enjoyed the walking and the pubs.

  9. Simon

    Superb location for walking or biking holiday in the northern part of the Yorkshire Dales. The cottage is in a very pleasant setting and provided a comfortable retreat in which to rest and refuel between excursions and exertions.

  10. Edie

    Absolutely loved staying here, the cottage is rustic, but that was perfect for us. The house is set on the river and there are many walks directly from the front door. Loved watching Mandy’s chickens and their shenanigans. Very well priced and located in the stunning Yorkshire Dales National park. Stairs might be a little tricky for littles and elders.

  11. Shehani

    Lovely cottage near the steam, very peaceful. The host Mandy was lovely, property was very clean with all the facilities, secured with gated parking. Beautiful area to walk around. We have a dog and host was very accommodating.

  12. Anthony

    I have just spent a lovely 4 days in this property. It is very well equipped and tucked away in the centre of Gunnerside. The local pub is a 2 minute walk (The King’s Head – book ahead of you wish to eat here as it is busy and only open Weds to Sunday). The cottage is part of a larger mill in which Mandy, the owner, lives. She could not have been more helpful and was the ideal host. Gunnerside is surrounded by truly beautiful countryside and this property is the perfect place to stay to enjoy it.

  13. Dawn

    The cottage was gorgeous. Well designed, well furnished and comfortable. I stayed with my two dogs. It is a good place for walkers. We cannot walk far and some of the fields close by had animals with their young in them, so that was not a good option. However, I found a place near Richmond – Round Howe. It is a car park with a picnic area and if you go across the bridge there is a National Trust area. You can walk either to the left or the right. We enjoyed walking to the left. The river Swale was very low so we could go to the water’s edge and the dogs could play in there. The host was really welcoming and kept checking that everything was ok for us. I would highly recommend this place to stay.

  14. Philip

    Excellent cozy cottage. Nicely presented and nothing that one could find fault with. Very attractive village with a pub that does good food not 5 minutes walk away.
