Idyllic luxury cottage set within the Yorkshire Dales in a secluded location perfect for those wanting to escape daily life whilst sitting within easy reach of a number of amenities and attractions.

Approached via its own private road, this holiday cottage is an exceptional luxury escape set in the Yorkshire Dales. Enjoying an elevated position on a hillside, the views of Swaledale below are breathtaking. It's a truly fabulous family-friendly holiday home.

 

Inside, you'll find an open-plan kitchen/dining room complete with heated stone flooring, stove, breakfast bar and farmhouse-style dining table. It's the perfect space to relax with family or friends. The generous lounge features a cosy wood burner, comfy leather sofas to sink into and a TV with DVD player/Freeview. Both the lounge and the kitchen enjoy those fabulous views to the front of the cottage.

The private road up to the holiday home is steep in parts and features a hairpin bend. All manner of vehicles, including standard cars, are able to drive up the road without issue however care should be taken with vehicles with low suspension.

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.

I cant recommend this cottage enough. We had a fabulous stay at Laykin, clean, warm, comfortable and the views, just the best! The location is great with plenty of walks from the door. The owners are lovely to deal with and have equipped the cottage with everything you need. Will definitely return.

We had a wonderful family holiday 28/8-4/9 in this fabulous house. The large kitchen diner was particularly suited to our needs as the chefs for the evening could be joined by the rest of the party without getting in the way!
