We could not fault how clean the cottage is and how comfortable the bed and living room furniture are, which guarantees a very relaxing time. We we have allready recommended it to friends as being a great place to stay. Thats all before going into raptures about Reeth and the whole of Swaledale which is truly idyllic! Great walks and lots of other things to do, particularly in August when the country shows abound. The pubs in Reeth are fine, but quite standard, but if you drive 10 minutes to the Punch Bowl in Low Row or the CB Inn In Langthwaite the quality of the food and ambience is much nicer. Thoroughly recommend the whole experience and of course Gareth is charming too and the kind touches of bread, butter, milk and biscuits was very much appreciated.

Easy to find, and parking outside no problem. Kitchen diner was nice layout with all the kit. Bedrooms comfortable, but the stair case did creak very loudly. Bathrooms nice with decent showers. Visited the pub directly over the road a couple of times, very pleasant and friendly. Ate one night just up the road in the Farmers Arms in the village of Muker which was excellent pub grub and good value. Loved the area sure to revisit sometime soon.
