Very excited this week to be launching The OId School in Low Row. From the moment I spotted The Old School I knew I would fall in love with it. Even the journey there got me all feeling all excited and fuzzy. Taking the scenic route from Richmond, heading up through Reeth, and then onwards towards Low Row, I was so struck by the scenery around me I had to stop several times and take it in.
But the stunning landscape here is just one of the reasons why I love this luxury Yorkshire Dales Cottage. Read on to find out why The Old School in Low Row is without doubt one of the finest luxury holiday cottages in Swaledale…
The Old School Low Row – why this could be Swaledale’s finest cottage
Room to breathe
The Old School has bags of space everywhere, from the grand double height entrance hall to the very generous sized sitting room. And with three bathrooms, this is a large luxury cottage with plenty of room for its guests. Sleeping up to 10 people, space is something everyone will appreciate on any family holiday.
Room with a view
It seems practically every room in The Old School features a framed view of that amazing Swaledale countryside. Cream of the crop is the ceiling height window in the entrance hall which affords a glorious view of the stone-walled fields and meadows below.
Pole position for the Tour de France Yorkshire
It’s thrilling to think that the eyes of the world will be on this patch of Swaledale next summer. The Old School sits right on the route the cyclists will take through this section of the Yorkshire Dales. Pretty impressive stuff. And with a patio just made for spectating we don’t think there is a better vantage point to enjoy the Tour de France in Yorkshire.
The Punch Bowl Inn
The Old School also just happens to be a few hundred yards away from the Punch Bowl Inn. Something of a Yorkshire culinary institution, this fabulous gastro pub is one of the best in the Dales. Wander down from the Old School and enjoy lunch or dinner there.
The Old School is set in Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales. If you’ve never been fortunate to visit this part of the Yorkshire Dales, then you really ought to pop it on your priority list. This is a land of rolling meadows and fast-flowing rivers where dry stone barns pepper the landscape as far as eye can see. It is, quite simply, stunning. Late spring is particularly magnificent when the wild flowers start to blossom…
