Welcome to Thwaitedale Cottages, Bridge Cottage.  A one bedroom, luxury, self-catering holiday cottage situated in the tranquil village of Thwaite in Swaledale in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

"Of all the Yorkshire Dales, Swaledale is, I think, the most dangerous - in the sense that once a man has really discovered it, he will not easily excape its thrall. There is something about it that sweeps a man off his feet & pulls at his heartstrings" 
A.J. Brown
