- A fantastically arranged and well-kept cottage with many touches to make an enjoyable trip. Very comfortable beds and good facilities to keep up to seven guests comfortable. Would stay again.

Approached via its own private road, Laykin Cottage is an exceptional luxury cottage set in the Yorkshire Dales. Enjoying an elevated position on a hillside, the views of Swaledale below are breath-taking. It's a truly fabulous family-friendly holiday home.
Inside you'll find a super-large open plan kitchen / dining room complete with (heated) stone flooring, Rayburn 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 burning stove, comfy leather sofas to sink into and a large LCD TV with DVD Player / Free View. Both the lounge and the kitchen enjoy those fabulous views to the front of the cottage. There is also a very handy boot / drying room downstairs at the entrance to the cottage and a further utility with shower and WC towards the stairs.
Upstairs Laykin Cottage has two sumptuous king-size double rooms, a large twin room and a very generous single. There are also two further family bathrooms up here complete with baths and showers.
The exterior of this Luxury Swaledale cottage offers an uninterrupted view of the Yorkshire Dales National Park below. There is a charming raised lawn area to the side of the cottage with further gardens and a patio to the front complete with BBQ and patio furniture.
The private road up to Laykin Cottage is steep in parts and features a hair-pin bend. All manner of vehicles, including normal cars, are able to drive up the road without issue. When you reach Laykin Cottage the view of Swaledale is just stunning and well worth the drive up!

Laykin Cottage has 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 dry stone barns peppering the dramatic hills and valleys. The village of Low Row and its award winning gastro-pub The Punch Bowl Inn is less than a mile away though, if you do want to connect with civilisation!
It's 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.
