Accomodation Description

Wardle House is an impressive, recently restored detached Yorkshire Dales holiday cottage in the village of Low Row in Swaledale. Due to its wonderful location Wardle House enjoys stunning views of the Swale Valley, the dales and fells beyond from every room. The panoramic views from the private walled terrace makes it a very popular holiday cottage in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

This dales holiday cottage holds a wealth of history and we are sure a tale or two – if only walls could speak. The first paper records date back to 1893 but we are sure that the property is many years older. Occupants of the house have been varied and records show that it has homed miners from the famous mining era and later farmers. But what’s even more intriguing is that from drawings it has been identified that the lower ground floor was for stabling and hay storage, and later Wardle House was the local village store and café.

But today, Wardle House is a welcoming holiday cottage, lovingly restored to combine the original character of the property and the smart modern furnishing. The holiday cottage is very spacious and ideal for families with children or even two families or a group of friends. It boasts four bedrooms, one family bathroom with bath and shower cubicle, one shower room plus a downstairs room with double futon and wet room.

What really makes Wardle House special is that it has been partly restored as an eco-friendly property, which in Swaledale is very rare. If you are visiting in the summer months the solar panels will heat your water for you! There is heating via modern electric radiators and in the dining room there is  a multi-fuel stove and a lovely open fire in the lounge which is wonderful to relax in front of after a busy day exploring.

The kitchen is large and has all the essentials that you will require for your stay and plenty of work top space to whip up some culinary delights! The kitchen leads through to a utility area via three steps.

The dining room is of a very good size and is extremely light due to Wardle House’s south facing location, it has an idyllic environment to dine with the traditional beams, the view of Swaledale and a small reading library. But, in those summer months why not dine alfresco and enjoy the panoramic views that this fantastic property offers.

Wardle House is in a prime location for exploring the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and as in the heart of Swaledale you’ll have excellent access to the surrounding dales such as Arkengarthdale, Wensleydale and the Upper Eden Valley. What’s also great about Wardle Houses location is that it is very close to Low Row’s village pub that has been refurbished, The Punch Bowl. At The Punch Bowl you will be offered superb food and excellent ale! Alternatively, it is roughly a 3 mile walk to Gunnerside the neighbouring village where the Kings Head pub will offer you and your dog an extremely warm welcome. At the Kings Head you can also treat your dog to a selection of dog beers and nibbles as the pub is renowned for its very popular dog menu. It also has free WiFI.

Wardle House 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.

To ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible all bed linen and towels are provided and electric is included in the rental price.

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! ...

35 reviews for Wardle House

  1. Kay

    Lovely home. Stunning views.

  2. Katie

    Wardle house was just what we were looking for for a family gathering. Plenty of space and lovely and clean. We were there at the end of January so in true Yorkshire style it was wet and windy but with the fires lit we soon warmed up!

  3. Kirsty

    Lovely secluded spot with amazing views. Make sure you pack extra logs though as it would be cold if the fires weren’t on, we did and were toasty all weekend!

  4. Borradaile

    The house is in a great location for walking, and very close to the pub for meals if wanted. It was winter and the house was cold, only heated by storage heaters, some of which didn’t work , and solid fuel fires so it was necessary to keep the fires going to keep the house warm.

  5. Marie-Louise

    So great to be able to have a family together with so much space for everyone! The house is large, in a really beautiful part of the world, with wonderful views, stunning walks from the doorstep, comfortable beds for everyone, and with a very nice pub just across the road.

  6. David

    Fantastic cottage with lovely views and a window to enjoy them. Place was warm and welcoming. It’s a short walk to a good pub. Easy access to surrounding hills.

  7. Tom

    Great place to stay, plenty of space to spread out. Superb view. Great pub. Great walks from door. Best cycling in country… in my opinion. Muker tea room is excellent.

  8. Lucy- Anna

    Would highly recommend! Beautiful house. Amazing views. Wonderful location. Excellent communication from the host.

  9. Peter

    Wardle House has an amazing view and you could sit there all day, but don’t miss out, as there are beautiful places to visit all around. The house has great space for a large group. Great family holiday.

  10. Julia

    Idyllic location with breathtaking views. Very clean and comfortable. Would like to stay again next year. Highly recommend.

  11. Melisa

    The photos don’t do this house justice! It was so beautiful. We couldn’t believe the views from the picture window downstairs. We were a party of 9 and had so much room. This is one of my favorite houses I have ever stayed it. It was so clean and stylish.

  12. Karen

    A beautifully situated house with stunning views across the dale – plenty of room for a number of people

  13. Russell

    Lovely place, loads of room. Amazing views and very relaxing.

  14. Emma

    This cottage is a hidden gem, an abundance of living space in terms me bedrooms and secret rooms that the children loved. The location was breathtakingly and views were stunning! Gorgeous walk along the river too. The punch bowl just a minutes walk away was very welcoming and served gorgeous food. We would definitely return.

  15. Lorna

    A really fantastic house – very spacious, comfortable, well-equipped and clean. The view is stupendous and there were house martins nesting by the windows. Five of us met there to celebrate a “big birthday” , perfect. We walked in the rain one day and in the sunshine the other! The nearest pub is very popular, better to book in advance but we were lucky and got a table. Great food though some of the portions a bit small, veg are “extra”…. Highly recommend this house, and we hope to go back when the weather is warm enough to enjoy the two terraces facing that wonderful view. Thank you for a great stay. Lorna

  16. Clare

    Views to die for, very quiet given there is a road outside. Lovely area, only downside for dog owners is that you have a bit of a tarmac hike before you reach off lead areas. Bring your own OS map of area and don’t rely on signal for navigation.

  17. Sheila

    Wardle house is beautiful, big spacious rooms plenty of room for everybody. Well equipped with everything you need. Lots of nearby places to visit, and lots of dining places. The views are breathtaking,and if you like walking there’s great walks on the doorstep We would definitely recommend.

  18. Nichola

    A great place, spacious and great location – good amenities

  19. Andrew

    A great house, with loads of character & space

  20. Lynne

    Wardle House is ideally located for exploring the lovely dales; a round walk from nearby Muker to Keld and back was enjoyed by everyone with outstanding views over the valley. The house, with the most amazing view, easily accommodated everyone in our group – bedrooms are so spacious, 3 bathrooms is a bonus and the occasional bedroom was a great den for our teenage daughter. Cooking facilities are really good, we even managed to cook a delicious Sunday lunch! The enclosed garden was great for our dog, and if it had been warmer, we’d have sat outside to enjoy the views! The nearby pub was a nice treat on Saturday night, very friendly and good food. All in all, we had a very lovely time and would highly recommend Wardle House as a great place to stay.

  21. Ian

    Lovely house in the heart of the Yorkshire dales with lovely views across a valley and down to the river Swale. The house in clean and homely with plenty of space inside and out, all of my family slept very well in comfortable clean beds. Had a fantastic time.

  22. Jennifer Pashley

    A fantastic cottage for a large group. Everything you need. The layout is unique and makes you think about it’s long history. Great spot to walk or ride from…The selling point though has to be the view from the dining room. Truly breathtaking.We will be back.

    • Hannah Wallington

      Thanks Jenny, pleased you all enjoyed your stay at Wardle House.

  23. Ella

    Fabulous stay thank you also for the biscuits and the fires set up . The box ( with lock) was noisy in the double bedroom near the shower room and out children were woken up by the noise. This is the only negative comment. We had a lovely stay and thoroughly enjoyed the house.

  24. Kate

    The views from this place are wonderful, the house well equipped, presented and comfortable, the local pub handy and friendly and some great walks on the doorstep. After an unexpectedly warm weekend in February we didn’t want to leave!

  25. Tim

    We spent a lovey week over Christmas at Emily’s cottage. Highly recommended for this time of the year with stunning views you couldn’t draw yourself away from. The Punchbowl is an added bonus only 3 minutes walk away with a very friendly atmosphere. A walkers paradise.

  26. Gemma

    Superb views and lovely relaxing place! LOVED the fire and the end space the kids enjoyed to hang out in. It was super. And we saw a badger walk pass!! Lovely seeing the wildlife!

  27. Nan, Elaine, Pricilla and Mary, the other side of North Yorkshire

    Four elderly ladies celebrating two birthdays, had a wonderful week despite the grey and misty weather. Now we know the Dale even better now we are not so able for the tops. Wonderful site and beautifully equipped cottage. Thank you.

  28. Lucy and Mike, North Shields

    Another fabulous stay in this well-equipped, comfortable cottage. We were here in December – so it was a little bit warmer this time! Enjoyed the spectacular views and had some great walks with the dog. Thank you.

  29. Abigail Andrews

    Lovely house and so well equipped! The view from the dining room window is stunning. We shall have to come again. Thank you for the small touches – cake, milk and fires set. The children loved it here and didn’t want to leave after just the weekend

  30. Paul, Susan and Family

    We really appreciated the lovely welcome and had a wonderful week, enjoying the spectacular views in all weathers. We managed tea on the terrace 3 days only in mid-summer! The Kinds Arms has great pub grub. Thank you very much!

  31. The Webb Family, Birmingham

    View spectacular in all weathers – we’ve had them all. Lovely, comfortable, well-equipped cottage. Fires welcome! Enjoyed local walks and places nearby – Reeth, Richmond, Leyburn and Bolton Castle. Thank you.

  32. Julie and Richard, Dorset

    Thank you for everything – the cake, the ready laid fires, the cottage – what a lovely holiday home! Curlews, Grouse, Bowes Museum, Black sheep – real ale – fantastic!!

  33. O’Neils and Rapers, Norrthampton and London

    Another lovely stay thank you! Always home from home! Dylan (age2) partially sighted enjoyed the train set and Shaun the sheep DVD on the wet afternoon! Many thanks, hope to come again soon!

  34. The Brumpton’s and Fallowfield’s, East Yorkshire

    Great game selection! We loved the coal fires too and need them in this weather! The walks are fantastic, great views from every window, and the main window has a great panoramic view. Shame we had to leave!

  35. Emily and James, Cheshire

    Beautiful and very comfortable cottage – the beds are great! Fantastic views, walks and pub – what more could you want? Thank you!
