"We booked Hackney House for a family gathering and it completely met our needs."
The house was clean, comfortable and well equipped. We did a mixture of eating in and going out and Reeth has a good range of pubs and cafes. The living room was perfect for sitting around and chatting. We really enjoyed our stay.
"Reeth is a great location for some more gentle walking (having visited the Lakes previous years), and Hackney House was an excellent and comfortable base for our party of 10."
Swaledale is a beautiful part of the world, and the national park and the farming community deserve huge credit for the pristine paths and fields you can enjoy to your hearts content.
"Comfortable house very near village centre."
Great location for walkers and cyclists. Great views from the front of the house. Well equipped kitchen. Our only real problem was that the hot water system ran cold for no apparent reason but we eventually got it going again. One bedroom on the top floor had a bit of a musty smell, possibly due to dampness. The house has a very comfortable sitting room but it is a shame that it is at the back of the house and therefore doesn't benefit from the sunshine in the afternoon and evening.
"We were ten adults and a baby, and we had a wonderful time at Hackney House in Reeth."
The house was easy to be in and very comfortable. So many bathrooms! We enjoyed being so close to the middle of town. What a beautiful village! We took several great hikes. The owner James as well as the agency were very responsive to questions about the house. We cooked great food there and had everything we needed. Thank you so much.
"A very enjoyable stay."
Hackney House met our needs very well. Suggested changes: * more info on website and in the house about the locality. For example. Shops available in Reeth, walks from the house, sites for river swimming in the dale. * system for waste disposal not clear. Just one small metal dustbin in backyard, nothing about recycling. * consider swapping dining room and sitting room location. The kitchen hatch helped but not much. Lots of long walks between kitchen and dining room. Thanks for a great stay
Dear Edward, Thank you for the feedback and I am delighted that Hackney House met your families needs and that you had a great stay - I appreciate the 5* review. Thanks for the comments: there is a welcome pack in the house that has information on the local pubs, shops and other useful information about Reeth and the surrounding area. I will add additional information on walks and local swimming spots. I appreciate the feedback about the kitchen being a walk from the dining room which is why there is a serving hatch. The realities of a large 6 bed, 6 bathroom house means that the dining room is a short walk, however I hope the views from the dining table across the Dales was worth the extra few metres. Regarding recycling, I will also add further information. I hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner
Really comfortable house.
"Lovely house, very well equipped and plenty of room."
Reeth is a lovely village with three pubs, all different so something for everyone. We found everyone very friendly and helpful.

"Fantastic cottage equipped with everything we needed."
Great location with plenty of choice of pubs and cafes just round the corner and loads of stunning walks from the door. Our group had a lovely break! Thank you.
"Fabulous and really spacious."
There were 12 adults in our party and more than enough room for us all. 5 minute walk to 3 local pubs, lovely walks and views from bedroom windows were amazing. Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely try and stay again if we can manage to our families together for a weekend next year.
"Lovely holiday house in beautiful Reeth."
Our 3 generation family of 6 adults, 7 children, (aged 8 months to 15 years), and one dog, enjoyed a weeks get together at Hackney House this summer. The house is very spacious, clean and well furnished with enough comfortable seating for us all to be together in both the large dining room and lounge. This is the best equipped holiday rental home we’ve ever stayed in… the soft furnishings and bed linen are good quality. The kitchen had everything, an Aga, also an electric oven, hob and microwave, large fridge freezer with water and ice dispenser, washer and drier, quality utensils, tableware etc.…even had a dog bed and bowls, a welcome hamper and good Wifi. All 6 bedrooms were spacious with beautiful views, really comfortable beds, TVs and their own shower/bathrooms. We were a very short walk from Reeth village centre which is picturesque and surrounded by stunning countryside. There are three pubs which serve meals and a fine dining restaurant/hotel. We were welcomed in the local shop, post office, newsagent/gift shop and the bakery, there’s an ice cream parlour and one or two cafes, all set around a large village green. There’s also a small museum, playground and a doctor’s surgery. Just down the road from the house the other way was a shallow river where our children played and paddled. There’s pretty villages to visit nearby… we mainly shopped at Richmond which has a Lidl, but pretty Barnard Castle, Hawes and Leyburn, all a short drive away, are worth a visit. There is walking/hiking from the front door, the bigger boys climbed the big hill and flew kites from top. We visited nearby Aysgarth Falls which is beautiful, there’s High Force too but our favourite was less busy Wain Wath Force where we picnicked, paddled and swam. The front garden has a barbecue, large table and seating, back yard is small but adequate for the dog and washing etc. there are donkeys, sheep and rabbits to see in the field over the back fence and the bonus of the village green and play ground close by and the open countryside. One small niggle was the lack of power to the downstairs en-suite shower, but there was also a bath and five other shower rooms I could have used if needed. We had a fantastic summer holiday thank you. I was a very happy Grandma having all of my grandchildren together around me. They forgot their Xboxes, PlayStations and computers for a week and not one of them missed them. We loved the village and the house in the summer, but with the Aga and the log burners we thought it would also be wonderful for Winter/Christmas holiday breaks. Must lastly thank the very efficient and friendly caretakers who were there within an hour when we managed to get a bedroom door lock stuck.
"Great house and fitted our needs perfectly."
Host was very good also and contacted us before and after and accommodated our changes we made last minute. We will stay here again!
"Great house for a crowd."
Very comfortable. Adequate comfortable seating in lounge. Great kitchen and very well stocked. Welcome hamper was very generous. A few little niggles bedroom on ground floor had no door to en-suite plus sink was very small hardly big enough to clean teeth also shower not great in this room. Cleanliness was ok but could be improved. I went to use hoover but it was chockablock also no broom to sweep kitchen floor.
"12 of us stayed for aa big family weekend and had a superb time."
Kitchen and dining facilities were excellent. Already thinking about a repeat visit.
"Lovely, clean, well equipped house with stunning views."
Situated in a beautiful village with several pubs, ice cream parlour and post office/shop. Had a lovely weekend Thank you

This wonderful three-storey, mid-terrace house rests in the heart of Reeth, Richmondshire, surrounded by a great panorama of hills, moors and wildlife. The perfect place to come if you want to get away from it all and enjoy quality time with your loved ones, the house is located in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and enjoys exceptional views; so, you'll never be short of things to look at!
There is on-street parking directly opposite for two cars with ample parking a short walk away in the village so you can enjoy the best of both worlds, getting out into nature then coming back to enjoy a relaxing evening inside.
Make your way into the attractive and spacious abode to find two lovely living areas to unwind in, the first of which is a dining/living room offering dining for 12 with large bay window and exceptional views over the Dales.
The second sitting room can be found nearby, and this tastefully furnished space not only offers fantastic seating for you to stretch out on, but also features a crackling woodburning stove, large TV and an array of books and boardgames to choose from!
After relaxing together, head to the stylish, well-equipped, hand-painted country kitchen which boasts a wealth of integrated appliances, as well as an American-style fridge/freezer and an impressive AGA range with marble worktops; the chef of the group will certainly be pleased!
After a sumptuous dinner has been fixed up, enjoy it in the dining room, or outside in the quaint front garden, where you can admire your peaceful surroundings during an alfresco dinner.
Continue to the first floor to come across two super king-sizes one of which has an additional bed, both of which boast zip/link beds, for added flexibility, and en-suite shower rooms, as well as a double with a basin and access to the fabulous, family bathroom.
Progress to the second floor to find two more fantastic bedrooms, a double and a twin; both rooms enjoy elevated views of the stunning countryside with binoculars and access to en-suite shower rooms.
Get to know your surroundings by venturing into Reeth, a picturesque village which is famous for its proximity to the River Swale and world-class trout fishing, as well as being home to the delights of an award-winning bakery/café, ice cream parlour, village shop and three quintessentially Yorkshire Dales pubs; there's also a museum, if you want to learn about the local history!
Venture a little further afield to Middleham, where the fantastic sights of Middleham Castle and the nearby Forbidden Corner can be explored, before returning to the market town for a pint at the Richard III Hotel.
Enjoy a day out with a difference in Barnard Castle, where the breath-taking castle of the same name, the fascinating Bowes Museum and a fantastic golf club await.
Why not spend some time in Richmond, Hawes or Kirby Stephen, wonderful towns resting on the National Park's edges; alternatively, you could venture further into the Yorkshire Dales to come across the outdoor havens of Swaledale, such as its wildflower meadows and heather moors?
For a memorable stay, look no further than the marvelous Hackney House.

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.
