Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Rose Cottage has a south facing terraced front garden with fantastic views across Swaledale. Entry to the cottage is via a useful porch, designed to accommodate muddy boots and/or for drying off the beloved pet! The kitchen diner is homely and furnished in farmhouse style with a traditional Yorkshire flagged stone floor and an Esse range cooker (same as an Aga). A cosy beamed sitting room provides a relaxing place to "get away from it all" and relax. There is a utility room which provides space for storing outdoor equipment such as climbing or cycling gear. The stairs lead to a newly refurbished shower room and then upwards on to a separate cloakroom with WC and wash basin. The two double bedrooms are at the front of the house and both provide beautiful views across the dale to the opposing hills. Situated in a lovely quiet and friendly village Rose Cottage is ideally placed for those wishing to walk the many footpaths, cycle the quiet lane or simply relax and watch the world go by.

The Yorkshire region
The Yorkshire Dales National Park
Rambling brings most people through the village, which is set on the Coast to Coast Footpath, as Wainwright mentions in his Guide. The village is worth a visit at any time of year, winter in Marrick gives a real feel for winter, hard frosts and snowy hilltops, Spring is a delight with the newborn lambs, and spring flowers, the late summer sees the surrounding heather moors in a blaze of pink and Autumn sees the chimneys smoking again.
The local wildlife is wonderful, with frequent sightings of Hare, badgers, bats and the odd Roe Deer. Bird life is varied with the nesting Waders iincluding curlew, lapwings (with their impressive skydiving courtship), and oyster catchers through the summer; There are numerous pheasant, partridge (including the red legged variety) and grouse on the moor; prey birds with various species of owl and visiting hawks, along with a noisy hedgerow of finches. Those with an eye for the flora, will adore the hay meadows in early summer while the smell of the wild garlic in steps wood is divine.
Marrick is a friendly and peaceful village, with lots to see.”
Marrick is an ideal starting place for those wishing to explore the Dales. A short trip in to Reeth takes the visitor to the meeting place of Arkengarthdale and Swaledale. A round trip up either dale, across the moor at Keld and down the other dale with a stop for tea or coffee at many of the small cafes or lunch at one of the fine pubs makes a fine day out and provides the visitor with the opportunity to see and contrast the different aspects of the scenery. The wildness and great bogs and open spaces of Arkengarthdale with the gentler, tamer and picturesque Swaledale.
