This holiday home is in a fantastic location. Nestling high up in wild and magnificent Swaledale, there is a real sense of getting away from it all. The scenery all around is real picture-postcard stuff, with ancient old drystone barns peppering the dramatic hills and valleys. The village of Low Row is less than a mile away though, if you do want to connect with civilisation.

It is a true walker's paradise here and there are some beautiful long or short walks literally from your doorstep. There are maps and walking books provided. If cycling is more your thing you can hire bikes locally in Reeth.

This area of the Dales is also particularly renowned for its spectacular wild flower meadows in the spring, but every season has its charm. And with no street light pollution for miles around, the stars at night are dazzling. May sees the annual Swaledale Festival, two weeks of amazing music, art and culture and the charming Muker show in September is another calendar highlight.

This property is personally managed by Marion.

Home from home and a very high quality rental cottage, set in beautiful countryside with stunning views. We rent very regularly and this ranks as one of the best that we have ever stayed in. A credit to the owners, those involved with cleaning the cottage, definitely a 10/10!

Love the view, the peace and the cottage itself. Perfect location, great walks, great family time and lots of choices to eat just a cars drive away. Although there is no grocery shop nearby, Tesco were able to deliver to the local pub car park. Second visit here and would love to go again in winter for a different perspective.

Response from Gorgeous Cottages:

Hi Gary,Thank you for taking the time to send in your review. We are delighted you think the cottage is in a great location. Laykin cottage is a very old Dales cottage full of character and still has many of the original features which do include the oak beams. There hasnt been any previous accidents with the beams and as they are an architectural feature there is very little which can be changed but, the owner will review and will remedy if possible. Yorkshire has so much to offer so please come back soon.Take careMarion Burns Hide

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
