  • "Lovely cottage with a superb rear patio and outlook."

    Plenty of short flat walks from the doorstep with a short walk into Reeth. Nice pub virtually on the doorstep. Would recommend this cottage if you just want to chill out.

  • "What an amazing property and fabulous location."

    We had lambs in our field every morning and the farmer came to visit them twice a day. The children throughly enjoyed this experience. Perfect property and facilities were great. One suggestion may be to have a rug down on the lounge floor and also blankets to snuggle with once the fire is on. Apart from the we couldn’t fault the place. Also the ice cream shop in Reeth is definitely worth a visit or two.

    Excellently maintained, and clean, a small chopping board, and a more upto date can opener, and a microwave basin would be useful,

    Thank you for your feedback. We have taken this into account and added the above items into our cottage. Thank you again for staying at White Lea. Property Owner

  • "White Lea is a little gem, beautifully decorated and furnished and very cosy especially the underfloor heating."

    It was spotless and has everything you need for the perfect Dales holiday and a short walk to the pub and neighbouring Reeth. It’s a marvellous part of the Dales with plenty of walks for all abilities. The views from the cotttage were stunning, it’s a real home from home and we’d highly recommend staying here, we’ll most certainly be back.

  • "The cottage itself was great."

    Lovely village and easy walk into next bigger village. The only downside was the parking if you had more than one car. There is very little other parking in the village and the landlord at the pub isn’t helpful, ever when you go to his pub most evenings and have a couple of meals there.

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.
