  • "The cottage was a home from home."

    Cosy, comfortable and an amazing view from every window. Facilities great including games, jigsaws and WiFi. Great that there is no TV. We didn’t miss it. Great place to visit the wonderful Yorkshire Dales.

  • "My feedback after a recent Sykes holiday was excluded because it exceeded the max."

    word count. There was no word count stated (and still isn't). It was a holiday we'd enjoyed despite multiple defects with the cottage. I wasn't told why it wasn't published until I complained, or given the opportunity to edit it. While there was nothing to complain about at Aros, I suspect that you exclude very negative reviews. I won't waste my time with feedback filtered by Sykes.

  • "Lovely cottage in a collection of cottages in the old mining area of the dale."

    Great views from all the rooms at different times of the day. The cottage is more roomy than we expected, and the whole area even more beautiful than we had hoped. Cottage had everything we needed.

    Needs urgent attention. Large bedroom dated. Other than that, warm cottage with lovely views. Very pleasant break. Nice area in convenient spot.

  • "Thank you for a wonderful stay in this cottage ."

    The views are amazing and the walks around are just what we came for, so relaxing. What can I say Aros cottage is cosy, warm, comfortable cottage, quiet surrounded by the most beautiful countryside. The 2019 floods have caused some damage and the red lion pub is now closed which was a shame. However my family had a relaxing time in Aros cottage. Thank you again

  • "The cottage was very comfortable, well equipped and in a delightful location."

    However, when we arrived we found that the kitchen waste bin had not been emptied and there was mould on the contents. The dishwasher had also not been emptied and, again, there was mould. In general, we had the impression that the cottage had not been cleaned thoroughly.

  • "The cottage was warm and comfortable, there was everything one could want."

    The absence of TV and WiFi was an absolute joy. Aros is situated amongst the most beautiful part of the Yorkshire Dales. Would highly recommend it.

  • "Excellent holiday in a wonderful location."

    Lots of walks for us with our border collie. Many places to visit in the car. To open the curtains in the morning with lambs, rabbits and birdlife very close to the window was a joy. We will definitely return. Thank you. Wi-Fi or TV was not an issue for us; it helped us to relax for a week.

  • "Absolutely lovely cottage and very well equipped for a relaxing holiday."

    Lots of extra details like games, maps and guide books, towels and bedding really enhanced our enjoyment. Beautiful and very peaceful location, and we enjoyed the absence of tv and wifi! Lots of lovely walks in the area and a very good local pub. Would definitely go back.

  • "This cottage is a wonderful base to explore the Dales."

    And the fact that there is loads of information about the history is a real bonus too.

  • "We've stayed here before ( a year ago), so we knew what to expect (otherwise would have checked the "exceeded" box!"

    ). This is isolated enough to be "far from the madding crowd", yet with one or two kindly neighbours (especially the housekeeper), and a pub-with-meals half a mile down the road (albeit a bit pricey), it's also very secure. No TV, wifi or mobile signal (suits us but would suit everyone). An ideal, comfortable base for us to enjoy the Swaledale Festival.

The property

Langthwaite 1 mile.

Aros is an end-terrace cottage that’s situated amongst stunning Arkengarthdale scenery, a mile from the village of Langthwaite within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

All on the ground floor, this lovely holiday home provides a perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and sample life at a much slower pace.

This cosy, dog-friendly cottage is a great choice for families, along with cyclists and walkers as the Pennine Way meanders close by.

The welcoming super king-size double bedroom offers superb views from its two windows and there is also a single bedroom with an additional pull-out bed.

The open plan living area, with an open fire in the sitting area, forms the heart and soul of this traditional cottage.

You can also enjoy a soak in the bath after a day spent walking and exploring the magnificent countryside.

Langthwaite is one of very few villages in Arkengarthdale and is also one of the most northerly settlements in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Langthwaite is well known for featuring in All Creatures Great and Small, and eight miles away is the world famous Tan Hill Inn, which is Britain's highest public inn at 1732 feet above sea level.

Close by is the charming market town of Reeth, home to some of the region's finest arts and crafts, and within driving distance are the towns of Richmond and Barnard Castle.

A delightful cottage to get away from the hustle and bustle of 21st century life.

About the location

LANGTHWAITE

Richmond 14 miles; Barnard Castle 10 miles.

The unspoilt Arkengarthdale village of Langthwaite is in the heart of TV’s “James Herriot Country” and is surrounded by spectacular and quite breathtaking countryside. Arkengarthdale joins Swaledale just 3 miles down the road in the popular village of Reeth, making the area a great base from which to explore all that the Dales has to offer. Langthwaite itself has a pub and just outside the village is another inn which offers food of a high standard. Pony trekking and equestrian activities are also available in the area, whilst the ancient market towns of Richmond and Barnard Castle, both with splendid castles, and the quaint market town of Leyburn are all within easy motoring distance.
