Reeth 1.25 miles; Low Row 2 miles.
A hillside scattering of traditional farms and cottages make up the tiny hamlet of Healaugh, situated close to the River Swale in beautiful Swaledale. It’s a delightful area with magnificent countryside and stunning views of the valley and surrounding fells. The village of Reeth, within walking distance or just a short drive away, dates back to Saxon times and became of sufficient size and importance to be mentioned in the Doomsday 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).

Previous visitors' comments about South Cottage:
The cottage had a homely feel and the peace and tranquility was amazing.
Mr Nolan, Wallasey, August 2012
The location was great, very much out in the middle of nowhere, very quiet. Ideally located for seeing The Dales. A nice house with lots of space (there were four of us), well furnished and equipped. The supplies left for us were a nice touch.
Mr Ward, Englefield Green, July 2012
We particularly liked the location and the attentiveness of the people looking after the cottage. The views were superb and the walks directly from the cottage were fabulous. Watching the sheep, cattle and other wildlife, particularly the birds, was very interesting. Being fairly near to a river as well was lovely because the walks along the river were very special.
Mr Frost, Horley, June 2012
A very enjoyable location with easy access to other areas and was very pretty and peaceful. The cottage was comfortable and warm and suited our needs. The welcome pack was very much appreciated. The housekeeper was very helpful and ensured we were alright before she left.
