Northern England region

The Yorkshire Dales is home to over 1,500 square kilometres of the renowned Yorkshire Dales National Park, which is characterised by its unspoilt Dales villages, patchwork of dry stone walls and stunning fells and dales countryside. Visitors are able to travel for miles along quiet country roads, surrounded by magnificent views in every direction; an area dotted with ancient farming communities and rural villages which is typical of this region. This area is perfect for a truly relaxing holiday away from all the stresses and strains of day to day life, where you rediscover a gentler pace of life. It's also great for enjoying a whole host of outdoor pursuits including some of the very best walks in the UK.


The Garth is situated in the small village of Gunnerside and acts as a perfect base for those wishing to holiday in beautiful Swaledale. Boasting a traditional pub, a part -time post office and a working smithy/museum, Gunnerside is certainly a peaceful and idyllic place to stay. Situated right between the villages of Muker and Reeth, Gunnerside is also perfectly situated for exploring some of the most exciting market towns and villages in the Swaledale area and is also an excellent base for those with a passion for the outdoors, with a number of footpaths and other outdoor activities widely available in the surrounding areas. The delightful village of Muker is famous for its Swaledale Woollens and old Victorian tea rooms. The exciting village of Reeth is also well worth a visit, with its unique shops, quaint tea rooms and scenic river walks, it is popular with those visiting the Swaledale area and is an excellent starting point for exploring the rest of North Yorkshire in more detail.
