    " I have no hesitation in replying "yes!" I visited this property in January for the sole purpose of locking myself away to study. So I will stay in 'academic mode'. POSITIVES: the owner was very easily accessible and very helpful, eg. the back door could not be opened on arrival. By the Monday someone arrived to fix the problem. The property was clean and tidy throughout, homely with all necessary facilities provided*. Before booking I had specifically asked if a reliable wifi connection was available for my studies. This was most certainly the case (other properties have previously given pre-booking assurances which on arrival have failed to meet the promises given), so I would add that the owner is not only friendly but honest and very reliable. The location was perfect for a feeling of isolation whilst also being very close to excellent walks and nearby facilities (Barnard Castle, Reeth, Wensleydale for the yearly pilgrimage to the Cheese Factory!). The views from the cottage were stunning. CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK: *I don't feel the following is the fault of the owner but perhaps lies with whoever carries out the housekeeping; there was only 1 bin bag provided for the kitchen bin to last an entire week (I had to steal a small one from the bathroom bin); the starter pack for the fire was inadequate - no initial logs provided, only enough kindling for 2 fires - this wasn't a problem for me as I took my own logs and kindling. (A note for anyone staying in/near Reeth - good sized/reasonably priced bags of logs or kindling used to be available at the garage in Reeth. This garage has now closed and the nearest other supply is Reeth Post Office which is more expensive and smaller bags). The back door wasn't broken - the housekeeper had left the wrong key in the door! The bedroom window was broken and could not be opened (I believe someone else has stated this) - perhaps not an issue in winter but it did mean I couldn't air the room. All of this is just nit-picking with the exception of the dog poo on the back lawn. I will definately be making a return visit in the future. I have been visiting Swaledale since 2007 and stayed in several cottages in the area. I certainly have no hesitations in recommending this property. It's a real gem.

The property

Nestled along the banks of the River Swale and set within the luscious green countryside of the Yorkshire Dales, is this charming stone-built Grade II listed cottage.

Holding much of its original character, Cowlings is elevated by ceiling beams, with exposed brickwork and timber flooring allowing you to relax and unwind in a traditional-style setting.

It is the perfect dwelling for families and friends to come together and experience some of the best walking country of the area as well as an assortment of attractions to fill your time.

On the first floor is a bathroom, where you can recover from a long country walk with a soak in a warm bubble bath.

There is also a shower over the bath tub, ideal for waking you up and getting you ready in the morning.

Also on the first floor are two bedrooms - a king-size double with single bed, and separate to this is a twin bedroom.

Spend your down time in the lounge and warm your feet by the woodburner set in the minster fireplace, tune into the TV or listen to your favourite playlists via the Bluetooth speakers.

Gather around the dining table in the farmhouse-style kitchen and enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal together, prepared lovingly with all the essential appliances.

Take in the fabulous views from the mullion-style, living room window or step out onto the patio with a glass of wine and continue to drink in the pleasant surroundings.

Close by you have the local pub, with the nearest shop around 3 miles away.

Pay a visit to the town of Barnard Castle nearby, with the grand Bowes Museum housing some curious artifacts, the abandoned Egglestone Abbey, as well as its centrally located castle and the enchanting Raby Castle on the outskirts.

You also have the large market town of Darlington, Kirkby Stephen and the stunning Nidderdale AONB offering wild, open moorland, within easy reach.

Choose to holiday with your loved ones at this elegant property with a glorious backdrop.

About the location


Reeth 3 miles; Hawes 13 miles.

A hillside scattering of traditional farms and cottages make up the pretty village of Low Row situated to the north of the River Swale. A delightful area with magnificent countryside and stunning views of the valley and surrounding fells. The village of Reeth just a short drive away dates back to Saxon times and became of sufficient size and importance to be mentioned in the Domesday 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).
