In response to the demand for Hudson House's facilities, we have extended into another building on our site, providing 70sqm of additional space. In this exciting development we have added the following to our range of services for businesses and residents of, and visitors to, the two dales of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale:

The barn meeting room
  • Self contained building with full access for people with difficulty walking.
