Timeless views across the dales

The Yorkshire Dales National Park was established in 1954 to conserve its natural beauty. The rolling hills have been shaped by both mining and farming practices. A short walk from the front door of Hazel Brow can take you to timeless views across the dales.

For those looking to challenge themselves the landscape lends itself to challenging hikes and even caving and pot holing. For fitness enthusiasts you can try your hand at fell running in the Swaledale Marathon or a more relaxing amble to the River Swale via the nearest pub or cafe.

A great part for walking

The narrow valley of Swaledale is said to be perhaps the most rugged of the Yorkshire Dales, with fell side fields and glacier-formed landscapes.

Biking Festivals

Swaledale recently played host to the Ard Rock Mountain Biking Festival and has long been a favourite for hiking enthusiasts.

Tour De France

In 2014, Stage One of the Tour de France took place in Reeth, Swaledale and Arkengarthdale, making for a great spectacle.

Hiking trails, bridleways and mountain biking routes

Varied routes

The varied and breathtaking scenery of the Yorkshire Dales attracts visitors back year after year from all over the world. These spectacular dales views can be admired with a cup of Yorkshire Tea in the house’s extensive garden or up close on the many hiking trails, bridleways and mountain biking routes.

I can't imagine a better destination for rest, together times, and walking throughout the adjoining countryside.
