Town: The village of Low Row is made up of a scattering of traditional farms and cottages to the north of the River Swale. The village of Reeth, just a short drive away, dates back to Saxon times and became of sufficient size and importance to be mentioned in the Domesday Book. Later it became a centre for hand-knitting and local lead mining. Its eighteenth-century houses and hotel clustered around the triangular village green make it one of the very popular Dales villages. Just short drives away are Aysgarth Falls, Semerwater and Hardraw Force (England's highest single drop waterfall at 99ft).

Intake Cottage is a beautiful, cosy cottage in a very unspoilt rural area. There are wonderful views down to the river and across the dale. There is a path directly from the cottage garden onto the public footpath. Curlew and oyster catchers can be seen from the cottage and their call is magical to hear. (Binoculars are thoughtfully left on the windowsill.)The fire in the sitting room is easy to light and there is a plentiful supply of wood. There are many walks to do in the area and if the weather is plenty of teashops and pubs!

The service we got from both 'Sykes Holiday Cottages' and the owner was friendly and very good.
The cottage was beautiful_very cosy and comfortable.It was in a stunning location with wonderful views from virtually all the rooms.
We fell in love with Swaledale! Fabulous walking country.
The local pub in Low Row(The Punch Bowl)was about a mile away but was really good with superb food.
We will be returning.
A comfortable stay
