    The cottage is very well maintained with everything you could think of inside, very well equipped and spotless. The welcome pack was amazing! My little boy was delighted with the Easter treats that were left waiting for us. Reeth is our favourite village in the Dales and we would highly recommend staying at this cottage to anyone who is thinking of staying in Reeth. Thank you to Liz & John for making our week enjoyable ☺️

  • "We had an amazing stay at Braeside for New Year."

    The cottage was comfortable, cosy and extremely well-equipped. John and Liz left us a little welcome basket with tea, coffee, chocolates, wine etc. which was a lovely surprise! The cottage is in an amazing location just off the village green which meant we could watch the NY fireworks from the front garden. John and Liz were very quick to get back to me both before and during the stay.

    My daughter and her three year old twins. The house is situated on the green in Reeth ideal to access the amazing scenery and country side around. Plus perfect to see the bonfire and fireworks on the 5th. The house is well appointed. The owners very helpful.

    Really nice crockery, glasses & bed linen make such a difference to have away from home, The extra touches were also well received, thank you.

  • "Having stayed in the Black Bull when walking the Coast to Coast a couple of years ago we were really keen to return to Reeth and explore the area further."

    Braeside provided the perfect base to do this from situated on the edge of the green across from the Black Bull. Our only difficulty was locating the isolating switch for the oven as it is at the top and back of the adjacent cupboard so not visible unless you bend right over. I would suggest a note as to how to locate it with the instruction manual

  • "Had a great time."

    Slightly disappointed that one of the toilets wasn’t downstairs and that several of us cracked our head on the door lintel coming out of the utility room. Food storage was great with two fridges and a freezer and the variety of crockery, cutlery, glasses and pans was excellent. Even the kitchen knives were sharp. The beds were very comfortable and the shower room and bathroom covered all our needs. We would recommend Braeside to possible holiday visitors.

  • "This cottage had the best facilities we have ever experienced in the many years we have enjoyed cottage holidays."

    Lots of thoughtful additions and recent upgrades added to the visit, including additional cleaning products, a new, well equipped kitchen and outdoor furniture. The cottage was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location was great, positioned overlooking the green with shops and pubs on the doorstep. A great base in which to explore the beautiful Dales and to relax in after a busy day walking. Highly recommend a stay here.

The property

A stone-built traditional Dales cottage located in the centre of Reeth, with all the superb village amenities on the doorstep.

This cottage has bags of character and charm and is situated in a perfect location to enjoy a family break in glorious Swaledale, one of the outstanding areas in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Featuring a spacious sitting room with a lovely window seat, electric stove and a wonderful bright and cheery feel to the whole room, this is a great place to sit and relax after a day out on the fells.

A separate dining room, also with an electric stove, provides a delightful space to sit and enjoy a little home-cooking and is next to the well-equipped kitchen with useful utility room.

The rear door leads out to a fabulous courtyard garden area with a short ginnel access to the rear of the village.

Upstairs there are three well laid out bedrooms; a double room and a twin which are both well served by the main bathroom and a family room with a double bed and adult bunk beds served by an adjacent shower room.

The corridor connecting the bedrooms contains another window seat overlooking the courtyard and views of the surrounding countryside.

To the front of the cottage are a useful porch and a mature well-stocked garden.

A cottage of charm and distinction and ideally placed to explore the famous old town with its quaint old pubs, excellent cafés and good eating establishments.

The lovely 18th century village of Reeth is also home to some of the region's finest arts and crafts, a weekly market and an historic village green, where you can sit with a newspaper whilst enjoying the village scenery.

It is an ideal base for walking, with high fells at one end of the valley which have evocative names such as Blea Barf, Great Shunner Fell and Rogan's Seat, echoing the voices of the Vikings who settled here over 1,000 years ago.

Sparkling streams flow down the valley sides through green pastures.

The River Swale, England's fastest flowing river, threads its way through a maze of fields dotted with stone barns.

The popular town of Leyburn is just a short drive away, with its mixture of tea rooms, gift shops and convenience stores.

Well worth a visit is the market town of Richmond, just ten miles away and also within reach of this North Yorkshire cottage is Barnard Castle with its wonderful Bowes Museum, Aysgarth Falls, Semerwater and Hardraw Force, England’s highest single drop waterfall.

A great place for a real Dales adventure!

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.
