Lovely Cottage is a sweet one bedroom apartment set in a refurbished stone Yorkshire cottage in Swaledale. Enjoying what many consider as the best view in the Dales, looking down over the valley between the hills of Kisdon and Lovely Seat, it is the perfect romantic hideaway. A great spot to pop the question if you’re looking for a location with serious wow-factor!
The apartment is also dog friendly so if you want to bring your pet away with you feel free. They will love the 5 acres of wood and meadow to charge around in.
Accessed by external steps, the accommodation is all set on the first floor of the cottage. Inside you’ll find an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area complete with exposed stone wall and cosy wood burning stove. The star of the show is the private balcony complete with table and chairs – the view from here is simply stunning.
The double bedroom features a super-king size bed with a 1000 pocket sprung mattress and also looks out onto the valley below. The comfortable bathroom includes a bath, perfect for a dip after those long country walks.
Outside, the grounds include a cottage garden, paved patio, five acres of meadows with meandering streams and a small woodland. The fantastic leisure facilities include an outdoor hot tub, again with that amazing view as the backdrop, and an infra-red sauna.
Lovely Cottage welcomes babies and provides a travel cot, high-chair & steriliser if needed. Please note due to the steps around the property it’s not suitable for toddlers. Lovely also welcomes up to 2 medium sized well-behaved dogs.

The apartment has a fantastic location. Nestling high up in wild and magnificent Swaledale, there is a real sense of getting away from it all. The scenery all around is real picture-postcard stuff, with ancient old stone barns peppering the dramatic hills and valleys. The villages of Thwaite and Keld are around a mile away though if you do want to connect with civilisation! May sees the annual Swaledale Festival, two weeks of amazing music, art, walking and culture and the charming Muker show in September is another calendar highlight.
It’s a true walker’s paradise here and there are some beautiful walks literally from your doorstep. The walk over Kisdon hill opposite to Muker and Keld is featured as one of the Ramblers Top 50 walks in the UK and the famous Coast to Coast route passes nearby.
This area of the Dales is also particularly renowned for its spectacular wild flower meadows in the Spring, but every season has its charm. And with no street light pollution for miles around the stars at night are dazzling.
