The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

Traditionally made cheese, a hardy breed of sheep, England's fastest flowing river and dazzling wildflower meadows…just a few things this remote northern dale is famous for. If you fancy escaping the 9-to-5 routine, try a Swaledale cottage.
Whatever the season, this scenically spectacular valley never fails to impress. Stay in spring and don't miss a trip to Thwaite, when its protected hay and wildflower meadows transform the landscape into a riot of colour. For sweeping 360-degree views, enjoy a tipple in Britain's highest pub, the legendary Till Hill Inn.
From gentle rambles to day-long treks, miles of trails weave across the countryside. Follow the walks of writer, Alfred Wainwright, who studied the area in great detail or, for interesting circular walks and welcome refreshments, head for Reeth, Swaledale's charming 'capital'.
The region is steeped in history and folklore, with remnants from the Vikings, Romans and other such characters - even today village place names and the local dialect reflect the Viking tongue. Learn about the lead-mining industry at the Swaledale Museum and the skills of the blacksmith at the Old Working Smithy Museum.
Love music? The Swaledale Festival showcases all kinds of musical performances and is a great time to plan a stay in a Swaledale cottage. And remember to sample some tasty Swaledale Cheese, thought to have been introduced by Norman monks back in the 11th Century.
So for outdoor fun at its best or simply a place to relax and unwind, retreat to one of our Swaledale cottages soon!
