Moorview Holiday Cottage
Reeth, North Yorkshire, England
Additional Location Information
Reeth is situated at the meeting point of two dales; the deep winding Swaledale valley and the wild and open Arkengarthdale.
The village has a stunning setting, surrounded by heather moorland and sitting adjacent to the River Swale. It is a lively village with houses, pubs, shops and tea rooms set around a wide village green. A weekly market is held on the green every Friday.
Swaledale lies at the northern end of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The green dale with its wildflower meadows and traditional villages contrasts with the wild heather moors, crags, and rock pavements of the surrounding fells. The dale has a rich agricultural heritage, and the patchwork of drystone walls and barns gives the dale its iconic landscape. A long history of lead mining has also left a wealth of industrial archaeology which can be explored throughout the area. To find out more about the cultural heritage of the Dale, visit the Swaledale Folk Museum in Reeth.
Swaledale, and the surrounding area offers fantastic opportunities for outdoor activities. A five minute amble from the cottage takes you down to the River Swale, England’s fastest flowing river, with riverside paths reaching the length of the the Dale. Swaledale and Wensleydale are famed for their waterfalls including Kisdon Force, Catrake Force, East Gill Waterfall and Aysgarth Falls. For a more strenuous hike you can climb any number of moorland summits from which there are spectacular views. A number of long distance trails run through the dale, including the Wainwrights Coast to Coast route and the Pennine Way.
Arklemoor Riding Centre, on the outskirts of Reeth, offers moorland rides for all abilities, and the Dales Bike Centre offers cycle hire, repairs and sales. The area is also good for climbing, caving and bird watching.
A number of historic towns lie within easy reach, including Richmond, Leyburn, Hawes and Barnard Castle. The surrounding area also boasts numerous castles, historic houses and gardens including Richmond Castle, Bolton Castle, Middleham Castle, Jervaulx Abbey, and Thorp Perrow Arboretum. Children’s attractions in the area include Hazel Brow Farm in Low Row and the extraordinary Forbidden Corner in Wensleydale.
There is a wide choice of high quality pubs and restaurants in Reeth and the surrounding area. You can even have a pint in the highest Inn in Great Britain; the Tan Hill Inn in Arkengarthdale. The Black Sheep Brewery at Masham and the the Wensleydale Creamery at Hawes both offer visitor tours.
