Accommodation Description

Sandpiper Cottage is a welcoming and cosy traditional Yorkshire Dales holiday cottage located on the hillside overlooking the Swale Valley. The nearby village of Low Row nestles amongst the famous flower meadows of Swaledale in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Sandpiper is an end terrace holiday cottage of three and is accessed via a farm track (250 yards from the road), and as the end-terrace, allows you to enjoy the beauty of Swaledale from this prime spot.

Historically this area of Swaledale was known for its thriving lead mining industry so you will not be surprised that Sandpiper was part of a former lead miner’s cottage. This dales holiday cottage still has many of the original features but has been lovingly decorated to a high, modern finish and is heated by super warm ceramic radiators throughout with the added benefit of a multi-fuel stove.

Sandpiper is an extremely spacious holiday cottage, with a fantastic open plan downstairs living area. The living room is welcoming after an adventurous day touring the dales, as seats up to three people very comfortably on a new comfy sofa in front of the warmth of the traditional wood burning stove. The living room leads through to the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is a cook’s dream as has an extensive range of cooking utensils, pans and crockery that will be most adequate for the duration of your break.

You’ll love dining at the table that sits in front of the original barn doors with fabulous views of the dales that can be enjoyed over breakfast, lunch and dinner. On the warmer days the garden furniture and barbeque will facilitate dining alfresco with panoramic views of Swaledale.

The gallery style master bedroom is located above the living room, with the small single bedroom and bathroom accessed from it. This makes Sandpiper holiday cottage ideal for a couple enjoying a romantic or action packed break or a family with one child. A baby can also be accommodated as a travel cot is available.

Sandpiper Cottage is one of our dog friendly holiday cottages, one well behaved dog welcome. There are a number of dog friendly pubs in the area and plenty of walks locally which make this dales holiday cottage an ideal choice if you are looking for pet friendly accommodation.

The cottage is perfect for anyone looking to explore the dale by foot or on wheels as there are walks straight from the door. this holiday cottage also offer secure bike storage!

Sandpiper has private parking to the rear of the holiday cottage and is located about a 10 minute walk from the local pub, The Punch Bowl. The Punch Bowl was refurbished only a few years ago, and offers great hospitality, superb food and excellent ale!

Low Row

The Coast to Coast walk passes very close by the village but for those that are not so keen on such a challenge, there are many less strenuous walks in the area. For example, there is a beautiful walk that takes you nearly all the way to Grinton on the banks of the River Swale at the foot of the valley. Whilst you stroll along the river bank you can take in the stunning views of the rolling hills either side of you, which is stunning on a summers day! ...

  4. Pip

    Lovely place, we had snow and sunshine and everything else in between in a week. Great walks from the doorstep. Curlew song can be heard all around, so peaceful and relaxing. Cottage is well equipped and cosy.

  5. Monika

    beautiful secluded cottage perfect for a little hideaway. We loved the decor and the wood burner. the cottage was cozy with lots of ambient lighting and cozy features. comfy bed, new bathroom, good size rooms. There is no shower gel or tea/coffee provided so bring your own. We were given milk and biscuits as welcome gift which was a nice touch! the area is quiet and pretty any time of the year. we were lucky with the weather and could walk from the cottage and explore the Yorkshire Dales on foot. There is a pub nearby (down a steep hill) that serves great sunday lunch with delicious Yorkshire pudding. the host was responsive. Much appreciated! pretty cottage with great views. Happy we booked this place!

  6. Wayne

    The cottage and location were absolutely superb. The cottage was warm and cosy with amazing views from all windows. A perfect rural retreat. Cannot find a single thing to criticise as everything was perfect. This was an occasion when the reality exceeded expectations.”

  8. Abby

    Very peaceful with beautiful views – we had everything we needed. Fantastic location, lots of great walks on your doorstep. We also had a lovely meal at the Punch Bowl Inn which is only a 10 minute walk away and the CB Inn is was also lovely. We highly recommend staying here!

  9. Mike

    Lovely location , excellently appointed cottage ….But sadly head height issues in bathroom and main entrance door as I’m 6’ means sadly we won’t be returning ??

  10. Jill

    Great location for walking and exploring Swaledale. Cottage cosy & quiet with stunning views from every window.

  11. Amy

    This is a remarkable historic property in the Swaledale valley, with extraordinary views. And yet the cottage has been painstakingly updated inside, with every comfort and amenity attended to. The bed is comfortable; the bath is modern; there’s a fantastic wood-stove. And the owners have provided wonderful maps and suggestions for walks in the area. You’re just up the hill from the Punch Bowl, a gastro-pub with good food. This is a very special place to stay.

  12. Louise

    The Sandpiper at Low Row is just blissful. Beautiful spot for exploring the Yorkshire landscape. Walks on the doorstep. Beautiful space inside the cottage to relax and unwind. Plus the cottage feels like a total home from home and is very well equipped. Could not fault it. No wonder people return again and again.

  13. Laura

    Enjoyed a very comfortable stay at Sandpiper. Well appointed and cosy, incredible views, remote location but not too far to local amenities and gorgeous walks all around. Lovely enclosed garden and terrace. Really comfortable beds. Owner incredibly helpful in the run up to our stay. Would highly recommend and stay again!

  14. Marisha

    Simply stunning, elevated location, above Low Row, with fantastic views. Beautiful well equipped cottage with all you need, and more, for a cosy, comfortable stay. Great guest info provided by Hannah, including maps, guide books, leaflets and a clear, concise, cottage guide. We highly recommend The CB Inn, and the scenic moor road to get there, for a fantastic meal out. Local walk to ‘Old Gang Smelt’ well with a visit. We look forward to a return visit soon.

  15. Roy

    Lovely cottage on the hillside. nice garden for the dog. great walks all around. Thanks for a lovely stay.

  16. Anne

    Sandpiper cottage provided us we a wonderful break at the end of February. A fantastic walking area and well within reach if lots of lovely villages and towns. The cottage itself is warm and cozy with the most amazing view . It is well equipped and very comfortable. A pleasure to return to each day. Gaining access was easy and the communication we had with the cottage manager was great.

  18. Alexander

    This is a tranquil and cosy cottage with amazing views of the Dales. Lovely walks, beautiful scenary, very nice food and atmosphere at the local pub- The Punchbowl Inn. The cottage had everything that you would need. It was no hassle checking in and communication was good. Lovely escape from the busy city of London. We will definitely return and do more exploring!

  20. Ingrid & Jon

    Hi Hannah, we just want to let you know that we had a wonderful stay. The cottage was lovely and what a fantastic view and place to be. Everybody around was very friendly we went to a number of different places, had a great walks, and ate out once or twice. We look forward to coming back again at some point in the future, meantime wishing you a happy New Year, Ingrid and Jon

  21. Paul

    Hannah is a great host and was super responsive prior to and during my stay. The seclusion of that place was just what I needed after a mad year. Will defo be booking again.

  22. Rachel

    The perfect cottage to stay in the Yorkshire Dales. Very well equipped. Thanks for a lovely stay!

  23. Jason

    A very excellent cottage in a stunning location. warm, cosy and fitted out thoughtfully, carefully and with quality furnishings. would not hesitate to recommend

  24. Peter

    Beautiful place to stay – stunning views. Cosy and quiet, very clean and comfortable. Kitchen equipment excellent and lots of useful information about local attractions etc. Very comprehensive instructions and information about house.

  25. S&S Jackson

    Lovely cottage and location and Hannah at holydayhomesyorkshire was very helpful and efficient. However there are a few ‘buts’ that may not quite suit you. The accommodation is very open-plan; in bed you can hear every spoon being rattled from the kitchen below. The bathroom has lovely fittings but because of the angle of the roof you need to kneel in the bath to take a shower. The second bedroom is very small. You are in close proximity to the 2 adjoining cottages, all but sharing the patio area with your nearest neighbour. Having said all that, if none of that matters it is a very well appointed cottage.

  26. Jess & George, Kent

    Coming from a bustling busy London this cottage and location is the perfect get away from it all. Lovely cottage with loads of character and amazing views. Although the weather has been bad it was still a wonderful and tranquil week away.

  27. David & Margaret, Surry

    Two weeks of excellent weather and fabulous walks. Felt so at peace here and very blessed to be staying in such a lovely cottage. Bowled over by the breathtakingly views. Wish we could stay longer.

  28. Gilly & Keith

    We’ve been visiting the dales for over 27 years and this is by far the best cottage. Beautiful designed and everything needed provided. Excellent appliances and matching cutlery and crockery. This was the cottage with icing on the cake.

  29. Kate & Frank

    This was just what we needed – a beautifully kept comfy cottage in amongst the most beautiful of English countryside. We had a blissful week, fully recharged our batteries. Not looking forward to my own bed – yours is so comfy!

  30. Alison & Peter, Devon,

    Perfect Cottage for us! Beautifully appointed inan idyllic setting with stupendous views. We are both looking forward to staying at Sandpiper again. Thanks so much.

  31. Kelly and John

    Had a fab week at Sandpiper. Cottage lovely everything you could possibly need, plus lovely smelling bed linen and towels when we arrived. We will definitely come again.

  32. Andrew and Mary, Northumberland

    A superbly equipped house. We have had great walks from the cottage in the snow. Swaledale does not disappoint even in foul weather. We hope to return.
