  • "Such a lovely warm welcome awaited us at our beautiful cottage which was everything we could wish for."

    Spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable, tastefully furnished and decorated and well equipped to meet all needs. We particularly loved being able to relax and enjoy watching the wildlife in the surrounding fields and moorland yet appreciating the hard work undertaken daily on the farm by every member of our host family. Loved seeing all the animals at close quarters and were totally spoilt by having the extra treat of being able to give some TLC to Floss and her beautiful sheepdog puppies. Thank you Helen, Roger and family for a wonderful memorable holiday at Shepherd’s Lodge.

  • "We received a very warm welcome from the owner, Helen, who was also very helpful in advising us of places to visit."

    My mother had stayed in Arkengarthdale during the war and wanted to revisit the area but was unsure of her bearings, but Helen went out of her way in order to help. The cottage was warm, comfortable and very relaxing. It is ideally placed for those keen on walking but is also close to the towns of Barnard Castle and Hawes for sightseeing. We had a really lovely holiday and would certainly book again in the future.

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.
