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 to 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 more 21st Century comforts.

Warcop is happily situated between the North Pennines, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Park opening up a fantastic array of walking, cycling and places of interest to visit. The village itself is a tranquil haven with a bygone era feeling about it and a slow pace of life. It's a paradise for heritage rail enthusiasts with the Eden Valley Railway running a two mile trip from just around the corner, and the wonderfully picturesque Carlisle to Settle Railway running nearby. Gentle walks can be undertaken from the door such as charming potters 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. Why not make Swindale Cottage your base for taking on sections of the trail?

Exploring only slightly further afield you'll find the Eden Valley towns of Appleby, Kirkby Stephen and Penrith all have plenty of history and interest to discover along with a diverse range 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, one of Lakeland's most beautiful bodies of water, visiting the Bowes Museum in Teesdale or booted and ready 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.
