Welcome to Low Cottage, a charming 2-bedroom traditional stone cottage set just off Reeth village green in Swaledale. This immaculate property is the perfect base for exploring the stunning northern Dales, and with a cosy wood-burning stove you can be sure of a warm welcome home each evening.
Step inside to discover a bright cheerful living room with the wood-burner at its heart. It's hard to beat the sight, sound and smell of a real fire - light it up after a bracing walk along the river Swale and enjoy warming your toes. Please note there is full central heating and instant hot water at the cottage. Take your pick from a comfy sofa or two easy chairs to curl up on. For your evening entertainment there's a wall-mounted TV with Freeview. Wi-Fi is also included if you need to catch up online...
Make your way through the lounge and into the handsome kitchen. Recently refurbished you'll find a striking black granite work-top, slate floors, ivory shaker-style units, a Belfast sink and a double oven / grill. There's also a fridge/freezer and a washer/dryer ? perfect if you need to clean some muddy walking gear.
The dining table is set at the rear of the living room. Grab some fresh produce from the local shops and rustle up dinner Yorkshire style. Sit down to eat with the glow of the wood-burner providing the perfect backdrop.
Opposite the kitchen is a smart fitted bathroom which has tiled flooring and walls. There's a large walk-in shower with a power shower and a heated towel rail to dry off your towels.
Both bedrooms in Low Cottage are set upstairs. The generous master bedroom is set at the front of the cottage and enjoys views out over the village green. Rest a while on the window seat and enjoy a birds-eye view of Yorkshire village life. There's a king-size bed to sink into each evening and warm oak flooring with jute rugs keeps everything nice and cosy.
The second bedroom is set to the rear and has an elegant white metal double bed. This room has lots of character with exposed beams overhead, just be careful not to bump your head when you get out of bed in the morning! Parents should note that both bedrooms open out near the stairs and young children should be supervised.
Outside the cottage there is a small rear yard, and to the front you have the whole village green to enjoy. Throw out a picnic blanket and enjoy!
Parking is available just a few yards away alongside the village green.
Low Cottage House has an idyllic location in the Dales. Tucked away just off the village green in Reeth you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the Yorkshire Dales countryside, and experience a true flavour of Dales village life all at the same time. The views from the cottage over the village and beyond to Harkerside are just gorgeous!
And Reeth itself is incredibly pretty. Old Yorkshire stone houses gather around a large village green, with the stunning scene of Swaledale as the backdrop. The village has several lovely little independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. There's also a cute little ice-cream parlour which kids will just love.
Every Friday you can wander up to the market on the village 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 Low Cottage you'll reach the river Swale in minutes. Enjoy a riverside walk or paddle about in the water until your hearts content.
The scenery all around this luxury Yorkshire Dales holiday cottage is real picture-postcard stuff, with ancient old dry stone barns peppering the dramatic hills and valleys. Just a little further on from Reeth is the village of Low Row which is lucky enough to have an award winning gastro-pub. The Punch Bowl Inn - one of Yorkshire's finest restaurants and just a few minutes driver from the cottage. Its sister restaurant The Charles Bathurst Inn is also close by in Arkengarthdale.
It's a true walker's paradise here and there are some beautiful long or short walks literally from your doorstep. For more info take a look at www.walkingenglishman.com/dales or www.daleswalks.co.uk/walks If cycling is more your thing you can hire bikes in the village.
In July 2014 this area was buzzing as the Grand Depart of the Tour De France whizzed past this very spot. And now you can ride in the path of your cycling heroes by following the useful road signs guiding you along the chosen route.
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. Reeth Show in August is also a great day out.
Recommended day trips include 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.
