I am an outdoor girl with a love for the beauty and peace of the Yorkshire Dales. I enjoy taking part in sport and particularly love wild swimming . The things I cannot live without are the great outdoors , my partner , Border Terrier , Scrafton, the sea, my friends and family. My cottage is a traditional Yorkshire stone cottage that dates from the 1800’s. So expect the odd spider! Try as I do to dissuade them the odd cobweb mysteriously appears from time to time ! It’s warm , cosy and in the small hamlet of Horsehouse boasting 15 permanent residents and a unique pub , The Thwaite Arms - a visit to which is a ‘must !’ I’ve owned my cottage since 2001 and it used to my escape when I lived elsewhere and in a previous life . I am happy when guests enjoy staying there as much my family , friends and I have for many years .
