This cottage is a gem in the Dales.. Everything you could ask of a holiday cottage. It's warm, welcoming and very comfortable. The kitchen is really well equipped, the living room cosy and the log burner a real bonus. The TV has lots of channels and the DVD collection is brilliant to pass the time if the weather too bad for walking! WIFI is excellent. Shower powerful and hot water every time. Bed in master bedroom comfortable with lovely linen. Lots of walks straight from the door and our 2 dogs loved it. The village pub was in the process of a new owner taking over so difficult to give an opinion but we did really like the Farmer's Arms in Muker. Friendly Landlord and delicious takeaway food. Fish & chips from the visiting van a must on Friday evenings, very yummy. All in all a lovely week in the Dales. Jane & Kevin are very responsive owners and make it clear they want you to have a good holiday. Thank you!!

A delightful setting - and the village will be even more attractive when the pub reopens! Lovely view from the cottage, great centre for both drives and walking. All the facilities at the cottage were very satisfactory - provision of cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils, oven, wi-fi, and television. Could not have been made more welcome: real attention to detail. Initially mildly confused by parking arrangements but parking ion the green dn in the village car park sorted that issue out.

A very comfortable and well positioned cottage in the village of Gunnerside.. Handily located for the local pub and two tea rooms with plenty of excellent walks on the doorstep. We would highly recommend.

Really helpful to have contact with owner prior to holiday.. The cottage had everything you could possibly think of for a holiday home. Full information on area and cottage waiting on kitchen table and a welcome surprise. We had a wonderful week in this cosy and comfortable cottage. Village is ideal for a walking base or to explore any of the dales. Peace and quiet. Although we knew the area there was more to discover without having to travel very far. Local people very friendly. Our holiday was end of March and so the season hadn't started. Some places were not yet open but this did not spoil anything, there is still plenty to see and do out of season. Just bring your walking boots or just sit and breathe the sweet air.

This was a fantastic cottage and we would stay again.. The supporting information was superb, including well informed local information. The cottage was well equiped, everything was on hand and a great welcome pack. The sitting area out to the front of the cottage, even in April, was superb. Walking locally was brilliant and the local pub is superb at the end of a walk. The owners really give the extra bit and i think really want you to enjoy their cottage, and we certainly did, including the dogs.........

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location.. Local tea rooms closed when we visited in Feb but pub which serves decent food was open. couldn’t travel as much as we wanted due to ice and snow but lovely walks along river from cottage. Warming up by fire was lovely to return to. mind your head if you’re tall on doorways!! Highly recommend this cottage and location.

The cottage is like home from home.. It has everything you need. The location is perfect for anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing break with walks on the doorstep. At the local pub, The Kings Head you are made to feel welcome. We love going here.

Superbly appointed pet friendly 2 bedroomed former miner's cottages (2 joined together into 1) in the heart of Swaledale. The owners have thought of everything, so you'll find all you could possible need for a most enjoyable and comfortable stay is this lovely part of the world. We certainly did! Walks galore from the doorstep in every direction - up on to the moors above the village, or through the meadows and along the river, and up Gunnerside Gill to explore the area's lead mining industrial heritage (loads of walking maps and books available to help you choose what's right for you). Beautiful scenery in every direction. Lovely places to drive to and explore too, such as Hawes, Aysgarth Falls etc. Wonderful dog friendly pubs serving excellent well priced lunches and dinners in the vicinity (Farmers Arms in Muker gets a special mention). Not to mention the mobile chippy that comes by on Friday evenings. Excellent communications too from the owners who clearly take pride in ensuring their guests have a fabulous holiday. We loved it!

Comfortable cottage in perfect location for village facilities and access to countryside walks.. Recommended.

Hillways in Gunnerside,Swaledale was such a cosy, comfortable and well-equipped cottage and obviously very well cared for by the owners.. There were lovely welcoming touches like the wine, chocolate & biscuits; also hand wash & hand cream. The front garden consisted of a patio facing south, with chairs and a table for meals al fresco. The cottage exceeded our expectations and the views were superb.

This cottage is a real home from home! Well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge with cosy fire & very comfortable beds. The views from the cottage are amazing. Gunnerside is very well placed for exploring the beautiful Swaledale area. The local pub does great food. A lovely personalised welcome from the cottage owners with a vast array of information to hand. Definitely a great place for a holiday!

We had an excellent stay at Hillways with our dog and baby.. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed, including highchair and travel cot. It is clearly much-loved by the owners and their attention to detail is evident throughout - we have rarely stayed in such a well-appointed holiday cottage. The location is beautiful with lovely views from the front garden and very good walks from the door, and there are a wealth of things to do in the surrounding area. We would highly recommend Hillways as a holiday destination.

A really well equipped and very comfortable cottage in a wonderful location.. lovely personal touches within the cottage including the welcome wine and biscuits, wide array of walking and guide books for use and the well placed outdoor table and chairs meant it really was "home from home". the owners contacted me almost as soon as final payment was made, and couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful...even checking whether the local White Bus would accept dogs. We were blessed with fabulous weather...but would love to have hunkered down in front of the fire. Will definitely recommend the cottage to others, and plan to visit again.

The cottage is really well equipped and the owners are incredibly helpful and obliging.. It is really well placed for lovely walks from the doorstep, just as well as we were snowed in for most of the week! The local pubs do good food and are all dog friendly as are many of the tea rooms in Hawes and Reeth.

We love Swaledale, and this lovely cosy cottage is ideally situated.. We had a lovely friendly e-mail from the owners before we arrived giving us lots of additional information. It was such a treat to arrive there - fairy lights outside and a christmas tree in the lounge - very festive, especially as it was snowing!! The cottage really does have everything you need and Jayne & Kevin seem to have thought of everything. We really didn't want to come home. There are so many walks from the doorstep, including welcoming pubs en route for lunch - The Punch Bowl in Low Row and The Farmers Arms in Muker are excellent. We also went to Hawes and did a walk there, stopping at Simonstone Hall for lunch. We also enjoyed The Kings Head in Gunnerside for fabulous evening meals. All welcome dogs (we have 2 Golden Retrievers) and are used by the locals who were very friendly. We had a fabulous holiday and would definitely return.

The cottage was lovely and in a great location in Gunnerside, with easy access to all the various walks in the area.. It's also very close to the local pub, but we didn't have chance to visit as we were too busy walking our dog. The only slight downside was the lack of parking outside the house (we parked in the village carpark) and the shower which only had enough hot water for two very quick showers. These are only slight niggles and not enough to put us off visiting again.

We have just returned from a lovely stay in this cottage in the lovely village of Gunnerside in the heart of Swaledale. What a fantastic place this is and so cosy and comfortable, tucked away up a small dead end road by a small sloping village green, this cottage offers peace and tranquility in bucket loads. The accommodation is spotless and well kept, a credit to the owners Jane and Kevin who frequently use the cottage themselves. They have tried to think of absolutely everything. hence it has everything you could think of, even little touches like torches for those late evening walks back from the fantastic local pub which is literally a few minutes easy walk down the road. It has a large TV in the lounge with a Freesat box attached, plus a DVD Player and a good selection of films if you fancy a cosy film night in. Excellent DAB radio in the kitchen with a lovely sound, just right for me as I am a bit of an audio buff. The bed is so comfortable, it was a job to rouse ourselves after such a lovely undisturbed sleep as having no passing traffic makes so much difference. If you are into serious hill walking, this is the place for you as there are countless walks and trails in the area. Masses of information, guides and maps are supplied in the cottage courtesy of the owners, one very nice touch is there were some parking discs you could use for two hours in disc parking zones in surrounding towns. If you are not extreme walkers, and we are not, there is plenty to keep you occupied all within short driving distances from Gunnerside. There are spectacular drives over the hills around here and driving The Buttertubs Pass over to Hawes is brilliant! If you are a nervous driver, you may find some of these tiny, windy very very steep hills a bit of a challenge with many steep completely blind summits and bends to negotiate, all on single track roads in places with limited passing places. But that is the Yorkshire Dales for you, and you certainly will not be disappointed with the scenery. If you fancy travelling a little further afield, the Beamish Heritage Museum is only an hour and a half drive away and really well worth a visit. The towns of Richmond and Leyburn are nearby with some lovely tea shops and places to look round. To sum up, if you are looking for a lovely quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you will not go far wrong with this charming cottage and all it has to offer.

We had a chilled, relaxed week away ! The cottage had everything, including all the little things you thought of over the week that we'd forgotten - from washing powder, dishwasher tablets, to bodywash in the shower ! The view from the front patio was amazing! We say in the early evenings watching the light change over the hills opposite the cottage - before heading over the green to the very friendly local pub. Good food, beer and excellent company . The walks with their breathtaking views covered all areas of abilities so as a fairweather, lightweight walker that I am!. I still saw amazing waterfalls, hilltops and valleys I'd hoped I would. We loved it!. Already thinking of an autumn break so we could use the log burner in the evening,we had glorious sunshine most of our week too so we even came back with a suntan!. Thank you

We found Hillways clean, comfortable, warm and surprisingly well equipped, with exceptionally good beds. The view from the small, South-facing front garden is stunning. Glorious walks in all directions without needing the car. Gunnerside village pub serves good food, and we particularly enjoyed joining in the quiz night (alternate Sunday evenings), where the locals made us feel very welcome.

Lovely cosy cottage in a great location.. Very well equipped and comfortable with nice touches. Lots of walks from the doorstep so don't really need to use the car if you want a walking holiday. Lots of good pubs nearby. Would definitely return.

Great cottage - lovely inside, especially the kitchen - we spent most of our time in there! When we did have a little issue, the owner was fantastic and straight on the job, sorted everything for us very quickly. Helpful friendly owners! Fab location, ideal to get away from it all!

This cottage was exceptionally well equipped and presented. The communication with the owner prior to my visit was informative and very helpful thank you so much. I loved the views from the windows and it was a joy to wake to that in the morning. The owners have put a great deal of thought in to making sure the cottage has all the necessary comforts to make a stay in it a pleasure. Excellent beds and linens all fresh and comfortable. The village has great walks and the bonus of a pub which is friendly and serves good food.
