The neighbourhood: Gunnerside is a small, picturesque, stone-built village in Swaledale. It has a pub and tearooms, and a fish ‘n’ chips van visits every Friday evening. Gunnerside nestles in the heart of Swaledale, and from the front door there are numerous walks ranging from the gentle to the more challenging. It is also a popular area with cyclists. The village is 5 miles from Reeth where there are various shops, a bakery, the Dales National Park Tourist Information Centre, several pubs and restaurants, a Post Office shop, GP surgery and an ice cream parlour.

There are many activities and sites in the area, such as waterfalls, the Hazel Brow Farm where you can also go alpaca trekking, Arklemoor Riding Centre, The Forbidden Corner (a novelty folly garden), several castles, limestone caves and caverns, to name but a few.

The Garth, Gunnerside

By Chris Davies on 30-Dec-2020

For us, Swaledale is "too far" to go for a day's walking but "too close" to consider for a holiday - until this year. However, Monica's place was amazing, and just what we needed. A very well kitted out house, which felt like it was used by family and let out as an extra. The location is stunning (unless all you want is retail therapy). Beautiful views across the valley. Walking straight from the door. Quiet location. What's not to like? We would certainly consider returning here later in the year.
