The pretty little Swaledale hamlet of Fremington is situated at the southernmost point of Arkengarthdale, where it meets Swaledale, and is a delightful area with magnificent countryside and spectacular views. The villages of Grinton and Reeth are just a short walk away, offering good pubs and excellent places to eat. Dating back to Saxon times, the village of Reeth became a centre for hand knitting and local lead mining and its 18th Century houses and hotel, clustered around a large village green, make it one of the very popular Dales villages. The village also offers a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants. Askrigg, better known to millions as Darrowby in TV'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). The historic market towns of Richmond and Leyburn are also within easy driving distance and offer a wide range of amenities.

Previous visitors' comments about Hobson's Cottage:
This is my second time here this year. The cottage is warm and cosy and well positioned for 'straight from the doorstep' walks. It is beautifully situated, so peaceful and such attractive views. In a nutshell, this is a gorgeous little cottage in a beautiful area and well worth visiting.
