Bramble Bottom is the only large holiday cottage in the gorgeous village of Muker, upper Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is beautifully appointed and offers a fantastic base for a gathering of family or friends. It is also ideal for a special celebration - we have hosted many great celebrations - from 18th - 90th birthdays and special anniversaries. Groups of keen walkers and cyclists will find plenty to keep them busy with fantastic walking and cycling from the doorstep and secure storage for bikes.
Bramble Bottom sleeps up to ten people in five bedrooms, three with en-suite shower rooms and two share a family bathroom. It is perfect for four couples holidaying together as everyone gets their own bathroom. Bramble is an ‘upside down’ cottage with a fabulous cathedral effect lounge/kitchen/diner on the top floor with stunning solid oak dining table, comfy sofas, cosy wood burner and magnificent views.
It’s a great space in which to cook, eat and chill out. With its lovely window seats, you can just curl up with a book and a glass of wine and enjoy watching the world go by. The kitchen is superbly equipped and has a cooker, dishwasher and microwave along with a wine chiller (there is never enough room in the fridge for all the drinks!)
Bramble Bottom offers free super fast wifi. A SMART flatscreen TV with freeview is provided together with a Blu-ray DVD/CD player. The TV has numerous apps installed, including the main i players, so you can catch up on your favourite programmes. In addition, a 250W sound bar system with Bluetooth connectivity allows music streaming from your own devices.
The quirky layout of the property makes it ideal for large groups. The bedrooms are located on either side of the cottage and most have their own floor, so guests can enjoy their own space and privacy, then come together on the top floor to socialise.
Each bedroom has been designed along Swaledale themes – so on one side of the cottage, there is the lovely calming Waterfalls Room and the understated (not!) Tour de France room featuring a magnificent photo of the Peloton coming through Muker on the big day! Both these bedrooms are on their own floor and have king size beds and en suite shower rooms.
On the other side of the property, you’ll find the Muker Meadows room and the Swaledale Sheep room (with its gorgeous large sheep wall hanging) together on one floor. These two bedrooms share the family bathroom with bath and over bath shower. Both rooms can be made up either as a super king bed or two singles. Down a floor you find the lovely Heather room, with its restful shades of purple and green. This room has a king size bed and en suite shower room.
For families we provide children’s crockery/cutlery, travel cots, high chairs and other baby/child friendly equipment such as stair gates and changing mats. PLEASE NOTE there is no washing machine at Bramble Bottom, however there are alternative laundry facilities about two miles away and there is a laundrette in the nearby town of Hawes, six miles away.
To the rear of the cottage, there is an enclosed patio with Kettler garden furniture. Directly outside the patio, there is the small village green, the perfect place to play and picnic. You are welcome to bring your own disposable BBQ.
Bramble Bottom enjoys a central location in the honey-pot village of Muker – one of the most sought after villages in Swaledale – with its excellent Farmers Arms pub, Village Store and Tearooms (serving the best cakes and Yorkshire Rarebit!), Craft Gallery and Swaledale Woollens. In May and June, you can enjoy the famous wildflower meadows. May also sees the wonderfully varied Swaledale Festival and in September, there is the traditional Muker Show – a great day out for all the family. There are plenty of visitor attractions within easy reach including the famous Wensleydale Creamery, Ribblehead Viaduct and the fabulous Forbidden Corner.
There is private parking for three cars and plenty of other free parking in Muker.
Bramble Bottom is pet-friendly and welcomes two medium-sized dogs at a charge of £20.00 per dog per stay.
With a view to minimising the carbon footprint at Bramble Bottom, we have installed a state of the art biomass heating system. In addition, low energy appliances and lighting have been installed wherever possible.
