    “This is a very nice cottage and also better equipped than many rental cottages I’ve been in.”

    There’s a well stocked kitchen, good laundry facilities, spare wood for the stove, some spare cosmetics and cleaning stuff etc. The location is spectacular and the cottage is warm, spacious and comfortable. The Aga which is on all the time is a nice feature. The access road is extremely steep with a double hairpin bend so if you’re not a confident driver or arrive here late at night in the dark it may be challenging to reach, but once you’re there it’s worth it. It’s about a 10 minute walk down to the pub - probably 20 minutes back up! Eight of us went and we had a great time. I would recommend Pursglove Cottage

The property

Low Row 0.5 mile.

This delightful, Grade II listed stone-built detached cottage has been converted from two original miner’s cottages, and is located high above the Swaledale Valley just half a mile from Low Row.

Beautifully renovated to a very good standard, this lovely holiday home provides the perfect location for a country break for a large family in one of the most beautiful locations in the Yorkshire Dales.

Styled and furnished in keeping with the age of the property, the cottage is full of real character and charm and retains many of the original features.

The sitting room combines a lovely mix of modern furnishings with stone flooring, beams and a wonderful fireplace with a modern woodburning stove.

A delightful farmhouse kitchen is a great place to sit and talk about the day’s adventures, with an oil-fired AGA and traditional styling creating that much sought after old world feel.

A separate dining room with another woodburning stove provides a great place to enjoy dinner and plan tomorrow’s excursions.

There is also a spacious utility room with a drying area and a small but useful kiddie’s playroom.

Head up the stairs to discover five lovely bedrooms including a spacious family room with a super king-size bed and a day bed, two doubles, a twin and a single room, ensuring everyone is assured a good night’s sleep.

All the rooms have plenty of character, old beams and lovely window seats to relax and admire the long distance views.

Outside is a large country garden with furniture and children's play areas, overlooking the beautiful expanse of the valley below.

A half a mile walk will bring you to the village pub, which serves fine ales and good food, whilst three miles away is the popular village of Reeth.

The market towns of Hawes, Leyburn and Richmond and the popular attractions of Aysgarth Falls, Semerwater and Hardraw Force are all nearby and are well-worth a visit.

Set in a small hamlet of traditional cottages, this superb detached family cottage boasts magnificent views across the valley to the distant fells, a great place to relax and one of those locations that will live long in the memory of visitors.

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).
