Lovingly finished family cottage located in the charming village of Reeth tucked behind the pretty village green. Enjoy the stunning scenery of the Yorkshire Dales in every direction.

Tucked away behind the village green in the stunning Yorkshire Dales village of Reeth, this cosy cottage has chocolate-box exteriors, a vintage-style interior and a pretty cottage-style garden with views out over Swaledale. There isn't much we don't love about this romantic Yorkshire Dales cottage.

The property is situated up a back lane which is lined with charming Yorkshire cottages. When you spot the cottage at the top of the lane, you immediately sense that it's well cared for, the immaculate exterior has a lovely holiday feel to it, with the pretty painted doors and the bench to sit and catch the morning sun on.

Inside you'll find a handy utility area with a washing machine and dryer. This leads to the garden and also the generously sized kitchen and dining area. We love the old antique pine table and the little vintage touches here and there. Pass the downstairs cloakroom/WC and you'll find the welcoming sitting room complete with a cosy open fire. Just like the kitchen, this bright and spacious room has a warm and comfortable feel to it. Perfect for flopping down with a good book while the fire crackles away at your feet. A Smart TV is available for your entertainment.

Upstairs are two lovely bedrooms. A delightful twin room which looks out onto the flower-filled garden, and to the front, a stunning master bedroom looking out towards the River Swale and the beautiful Dales countryside. The master bedroom features an iron bed and an antique pine dresser/wardrobe. The overall effect is just heavenly. The family bathroom is up also upstairs with a bath to relax into each evening and also a shower over the bath for a quick morning freshener.

Back downstairs and through to the garden. Set under the shade of a mature tree, the elevated lawn boasts magnificent views of the cottage and Swaledale beyond. When the sun is shining it's a lovely spot for your morning cuppa or afternoon tipple. There is also a table and chairs provided on the patio for lunch and dinner alfresco.

  • 2 bedrooms: 1 king-size bedroom and 1 twin bedroom

The cottage has an idyllic location, tucked away behind the village green in Reeth. You can enjoy the peace and quiet of the Yorkshire Dales countryside, and experience a true flavour of village life all at the same time. Reeth itself is incredibly pretty - old Yorkshire stone houses gather around a large village green, with the stunning scenery of Swaledale as the backdrop. The village has several little independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. There's also an ice cream parlour which your children will just love.

Every Friday you can wander up to the market on the green and bag yourself some locally produced fresh Yorkshire cheese, jams, honey and fish amongst other things. And if you head down in the opposite direction from the cottage, you'll reach the river Swale in minutes. Enjoy a riverside walk or paddle about in the water to your heart's content. The scenery all around this luxury Yorkshire Dales holiday cottage is captivating, with ancient dry-stone barns peppering the dramatic hills and valleys. Just 4 miles on from Reeth is the village of Low Row which is lucky enough to have an award-winning gastropub.

It's a true walker's paradise here and there are some beautiful long or short walks literally from your doorstep. If cycling is more your thing you can hire bikes in the village. This area of the Dales is also renowned for its spectacular wildflower meadows in the spring and with no street light pollution for miles around, the stars at night are dazzling. We also recommend a drive across Buttertubs Pass; this jaw-dropping mountainous road connects Swaledale to its neighbour Wensleydale, and it features some of the most dramatic scenery in the Yorkshire Dales.

Lovely cottage in a great location. Excellent decor and furnishings. Back Lane is very narrow and steep, although saying that our Honda CRV got through. A cut through next to cottage gets you to main road, shops, pubs etc in seconds. A short stroll to play equipment and river, which is great if you have children.

Just returned from a weekend in beautiful Reeth. Our time there was greatly enhanced by staying at Nurse Cherry Cottage. It's difficult to avoid cliches when doing a review of such an excellent place to stay. It really is a home from home! From the minute we walked in we knew we would be happy, and so we were. It has all the home comforts that you Read morewould expect, from a very comfy bed to a welcoming fire and a well-equipped kitchen. The location is ideal, literally a minute a two from the village center and just a few more before being out into beautiful Swaledale. We enjoyed staying at Nurse Cherry Cottage so much we've already booked again for next year. Highly recommended. Hide

The cottage was in a perfect location, lots of lovely walks from the village without having to use the car. The cottage was fully equipped with everything we needed.

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.
