  • "What an amazing cottage!"

    We had a wonderful stay in Braeside and couldn’t fault it. You’re greeted by the beautiful front garden, with outdoor seating that enables you to watch the world go by in your sun trap. The house is roomy and cosy, with a decent sized lounge, dining room and kitchen. Everywhere was spotless and every possible detail had been considered - Everything you could possibly need was provided and I challenge anyone to think of anything the owners might have missed. To top it all there was a lovely card and welcome pack of goodies, which was such a lovely surprise. Reeth itself is a great base for Swaledale and Wensleydale, with a post office selling groceries only a few yards from the cottage, local bakeries and plenty of local pubs to choose from. A wonderful cottage and holiday and I’m sure we will return.

    That is very kind of you. We do try really hard to ensure visitors have a lovely stay. We would be delighted if you returned. Thank you for leaving it so clean and tidy on your departure. That helps a lot. Property Owner

  • "Having stayed in the Black Bull when walking the Coast to Coast a couple of years ago we were really keen to return to Reeth and explore the area further."

    Braeside provided the perfect base to do this from situated on the edge of the green across from the Black Bull. Our only difficulty was locating the isolating switch for the oven as it is at the top and back of the adjacent cupboard so not visible unless you bend right over. I would suggest a note as to how to locate it with the instruction manual

  • "Had a great time."

    Slightly disappointed that one of the toilets wasn’t downstairs and that several of us cracked our head on the door lintel coming out of the utility room. Food storage was great with two fridges and a freezer and the variety of crockery, cutlery, glasses and pans was excellent. Even the kitchen knives were sharp. The beds were very comfortable and the shower room and bathroom covered all our needs. We would recommend Braeside to possible holiday visitors.

The property

A stone-built traditional Dales cottage located in the centre of Reeth, with all the superb village amenities on the doorstep.

This cottage has bags of character and charm and is situated in a perfect location to enjoy a family break in glorious Swaledale, one of the outstanding areas in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Featuring a spacious sitting room with a lovely window seat, electric stove and a wonderful bright and cheery feel to the whole room, this is a great place to sit and relax after a day out on the fells.

A separate dining room, also with an electric stove, provides a delightful space to sit and enjoy a little home-cooking and is next to the well-equipped kitchen with useful utility room.

The rear door leads out to a fabulous courtyard garden area with a short ginnel access to the rear of the village.

Upstairs there are three well laid out bedrooms; a double room and a twin which are both well served by the main bathroom and a family room with a double bed and adult bunk beds served by an adjacent shower room.

The corridor connecting the bedrooms contains another window seat overlooking the courtyard and views of the surrounding countryside.

To the front of the cottage are a useful porch and a mature well-stocked garden.

A cottage of charm and distinction and ideally placed to explore the famous old town with its quaint old pubs, excellent cafés and good eating establishments.

The lovely 18th century village of Reeth is also home to some of the region's finest arts and crafts, a weekly market and an historic village green, where you can sit with a newspaper whilst enjoying the village scenery.

It is an ideal base for walking, with high fells at one end of the valley which have evocative names such as Blea Barf, Great Shunner Fell and Rogan's Seat, echoing the voices of the Vikings who settled here over 1,000 years ago.

Sparkling streams flow down the valley sides through green pastures.

The River Swale, England's fastest flowing river, threads its way through a maze of fields dotted with stone barns.

The popular town of Leyburn is just a short drive away, with its mixture of tea rooms, gift shops and convenience stores.

Well worth a visit is the market town of Richmond, just ten miles away and also within reach of this North Yorkshire cottage is Barnard Castle with its wonderful Bowes Museum, Aysgarth Falls, Semerwater and Hardraw Force, England’s highest single drop waterfall.

A great place for a real Dales adventure!

Please note that from October 7th 2023 the bunk beds will be removed and the property will go from sleeping 8 to 6 after this date. (Pictures will be updated once the bunk beds have been removed)

About the location


Leyburn 8 miles; Richmond 11 miles; Barnard Castle 15 miles; Kirkby Stephen 22 miles.

The pretty, ever-popular village of Reeth rests at the northern tip of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where Arkengarthdale and Swaledale meet, nestled between Calver Hill, Fremington Edge and Harkerside. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with lovely rolling hills and spectacular views, Reeth boasts a colourful history as it was originally a Saxon settlement, and has also been known as a lead mining town and a centre for hand knitting throughout its time. Both trades are proudly featured in the Swaledale Museum, located alongside a good range of shops, tea rooms and restaurants. For a quaint little community, Reeth is well-served by traditional inns, with three to choose from, including the lovely Buck Hotel, whitewashed like so many of the 18th century cottages huddled around the triangular village green. The historic market towns of Richmond and Leyburn are also within easy reach, offering a further selection of amenities. Askrigg is just a short drive away, as well as Aysgarth Falls, Semerwater and Hardraw Force (England's highest single drop waterfall at 99ft). Reeth offers a fantastic base for exploring North Yorkshire's beautiful, sweeping countryside, whether you choose to discover the caves, cliffs, waterfalls or the plethora of walking and cycling routes that circle this vibrant and varied landscape.
