    “High Smarber is a unique cottage ...”
    High Smarber is a unique cottage with amazing views over Swaledale. It is a very well equipped, comfortable cottage and Helen Hird who looks after it can't do enough to help. The cottage is perfectly placed for walks in the area, Gunnerside and Reeth both being within walking distance. We had a fantastic, relaxing week up there.

About the location

LOW ROW

Reeth 3 miles; Hawes 13 miles.

A hillside scattering of traditional farms and cottages make up the pretty village of Low Row situated to the north of the River Swale. A delightful area with magnificent countryside and stunning views of the valley and surrounding fells. 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. Askrigg better known to millions as Darrowby in TV's James Herriot's "All Creatures Great and Small" is just a short drive away as well as Aysgarth Falls, Semerwater and Hardraw Force (England's highest single drop waterfall at 99ft).
