One of my favourite little spots is missed by many who're perhaps understandably distracted by the Ice Cream Parlour, pubs, or Swaledale Museum.
Hudson House stands proud on the edge of the green, and offers visitor information and a programme of changing exhibitions in the Orchard Gallery.
To the side is a gate that leads to a little patch of paradise - the Orchard and community garden.
Hudson House is at the heart of the Swaledale Festival, hosting numerous events, but most of the time it's simply a beautiful tranquil spot.
You can sit and enjoy the peace and birdlife on one of the benches, or wander and notice the sculptures dotted about the place, some half hidden by overhanging foliage. The longer you rest, the more you'll gradually notice.
The 'hot' border is full of brightly coloured flowers such as penstemon and geraniums, attracting bees and butterflies, while the 'cool' border uses white and blue campanula and delphinium to create a peaceful, more muted area.
There are several apple and pear trees, next to a small wildflower meadow, similar to those on farms through out Swaledale and Arkengarthdale.
The building used to be a bank, with a very over-grown garden so it's remarkable what the community group volunteers have achieved.
Once you've enjoyed the garden, you might like to treat yourself to an ice cream in the nearby Parlour, browse in Fleece which is full of locally handmade items.
You could also enjoy a treat from Two Dales Bakery, look around Scenic View Gallery or simply sit and enjoy a drink or meal in the garden of Burgoyne Hotel, drinking in the incredible view.
