Nestled in the tranquil village of Warcop on the edge of the North Pennines AONB is Swindale Cottage, a charming Victorian end-of-terrace house. Sleeping between three and four people and boasting lovely socialising spaces, it has been thoughtfully planned to make a comfortable base for a couple or small group to take advantage of the natural delights of the area. The property has a charming position overlooking a pretty stream and has been renovated to make the most of its period feel while adding a modern kitchen and bathroom for that 21st century comfort.

Warcop is happily situated between the North Pennines, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Park, giving you access to a fantastic array of walking, cycling and attractions. The village itself is a tranquil haven with the feel of a bygone era and a slow pace of life. It's a paradise for heritage rail enthusiasts with the Eden Valley Railway running from just around the corner and the wonderfully picturesque Carlisle to Settle Railway passing nearby. Gentle walks can be undertaken from the door; why not enjoy a charming potter along the River Eden and to the pub in the neighbouring village of Sandford? Alfred Wainwright's multi-day walk, known as A Pennine Journey, goes through the village. Swindale Cottage is a great base for taking on sections of the trail.

Only slightly further afield you'll find the Eden Valley towns of Appleby, Kirkby Stephen and Penrith, all of which have plenty of history and attractions to discover alongside a diverse selection of shops and a great choice of eateries. Warcop's accessible position near the A66 means that within half an hour of the cottage you could be paddling in Ullswater, visiting the Bowes Museum in Teesdale, or booting up and preparing to walk up one of the mighty fells of the Dales, the Lakes or the Pennines. Alternatively you can just come to Swindale Cottage and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this quiet village off the beaten tourist track.
