Brompton on Swale Bunkbarn

Away from it all.

July 12th 2017

It’s easy to leave city life behind with miles of hills, moorland, and peaceful valleys to explore.

Its very easy, here at the northern tip of Yorkshire to feel like you might you be in the middle of nowhere. If you’re anything like me, you’ll think that’s a good thing. Within striking distance of both The Yorkshire Dales National Park and The North Yorkshire Moors; and close to the coast to coast mountain bike track and footpath, Brompton on Swale Bunkbarn is a great base for walking or cycling. It’s easy to leave city life behind with miles of hills, moorland, and peaceful valleys to explore. Sheep, haymeadows, those distinctive barns, waterfalls – what’s not to like?

The Bunkbarn is listed as ‘simple’ accommodation yet with  a fully equipped kitchen; shower and toilet facilities; secure bike storage and access to the facilities of the village, it will provide everything you need.  

A perfect place for relaxation…
