Pretoria Cottage is a detached, stone-built cottage, with a cosy living room with a multi fuel burner, a modern, fully-equipped kitchen and a large pantry/utility room. Upstairs, there is a large, king size, master bedroom with dual aspect windows, offering lovely views along Swaledale. There is also a small bedroom with bunk-beds (the upper bunk is only suitable for a child as it is difficult to climb into, but an adult can use the lower bunk). There is also a shower room/toilet and a small porch with room for boots and coats.
