We couldn't have asked for a prettier location or cottage. Comfortably furnished, well equipped and with stunning views across the valley. Perfect country retreat to get away from it all. Tried out several local pubs who all served great food. Nearest shop & bakery is about 5 miles away in Reeth, so worth taking essential provisions (wine,beer, snacks & perhaps breakfast!) to relax and enjoy the view on your first evening; no better way to start a holiday! There are a number of walks that you can start from the Byre. It's worth visiting the Tourist Information Office in Reeth for local walking maps - there's a lot to do! We would certainly recommend as a wonderful base to explore the Yorkshire Dales. So much to see and do.
Lovely couple who looked after Swallows Byre very well. It was great to meet them and thank them for their wonderful review.
Had a really enjoyable stay at Swallow Byre. Dorothy met me at the property on my arrival and was very helpful and friendly. The place was ideally situated for a week of walking, with a short walk across the fields down to the river and then walking in either direction from there leading to some great walks. I only used the car once throughout my stay and that was only because it was raining! The cottage itself was very well kept and comfortable. Although I ate in I can certainly recommend the Kings head in Gunnerside and the Black Bull in Reeth for a drink. Would definitely stay there again if I was in the area.

This was our Second stay at the beautiful Swallows Byre . We love everything about it! Equipped to a high standard . More than a holiday cottage it has so many personal touches of luxury it feels like home. Spotless with attention to detail. The antique double bed is the most comfortable weve ever slept in! The kitchen is small but we manage to bake bread and cook wonderful meals . The bathroom has a freestanding bath with soft fluffy towels and has a super warm heated towel rail. Underfloor heating too keeps everything cozy. Its an upside down cottage with the sitting room upstairs stunning views over the valley to the river. I cannot stress the beautiful views enough from upstairs as well as down where you lie in bed watching the river tumble over the rocks . The sitting room has a balcony and is brilliant for bird watching. The log burner is a real treat in the winter evenings. We love it here and enjoyed staying in intake cottage too. The outside space is wonderful too! The summer house being one of our favorite places to do the crossword . Dorothy is a fantastic host making sure your stay is a comfortable one . We have already booked our 3rd visit in a year and are about to book a week for our son and daughter in laws anniversary gift too. There is so much choice of places to go nearby ... Thats if you can bear to leave Swallows Byre!
