Nurse Cherry Cottage in Reeth is one of the sweetest cottages we've had the pleasure of visiting. Tucked away behind the village green in this stunning Yorkshire Dales village, it has chocolate box exteriors, a vintage style interior and a very pretty cottage-style garden with views out over Swaledale. There isn't much we don't love about this romantic Yorkshire Dales cottage.
Nurse Cherry Cottage is set 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 very handy utility area with a washing machine and dryer. This leads to the garden and also the generous 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 large sitting room complete with a cosy open fire. Just like the kitchen, this bright and spacious room has a very warm and comfortable feel to it. Perfect for flopping down with a good book while the fire crackles away at your feet. There are Freeview channels and Netflix available for your entertainment.
Upstairs are two lovely bedrooms. A delightful twin room which looks out onto that gorgeous garden, and to the front a stunning master bedroom looking out towards the river Swale and the beautiful Dales countryside. The master bedroom features a white iron bed and an antique pine dresser / wardrobe. The overall effect is just heavenly. The family bathroom is up also upstairs. There's a bath to sink 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 G & T. There is also a table and chairs provided on the patio for lunch and dinner al fresco.

Nurse Cherry Cottage House has an idyllic location in the Dales. 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 Dales 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 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 your 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 Nurse Cherry Cottage you'll reach the river Swale in minutes. Enjoy a riverside walk or paddle about in the water til 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. If cycling is more your thing you can hire bikes in the village. In July 2014 this area will be buzzing as the Grand Depart of the Tour De France whizzes 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. 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.
