  • "Very nicely equipped cottage and has all the facilities you need."

    It is however just a bit on the small side, which is the reason I have given 4 stars instead of 5. Didn’t have any trouble parking directly outside. Space was always available. Reeth is an ideal village if you like walking that is not too strenuous. Some nice walks directly from the Village.

  • "My only criticism was that the cottage is quite small and 2 adults and a smallish dog really filled it!"

    Also, our elderley dog struggled with the stairs, and as the living areas were on the upper floor, she had to be carried up and down frequently. The cottage, however, was lovely, and the little extras very thoughtful.

  • "We both had a lovely week's holiday in Reeth, which was made even better by the location of Dibble Cottage, which is right in the centre of the village."

    The fact that the bedroom and shower is on ground floor, whilst the kitchen/dining area and living room were upstairs was an added bonus and this was because it was a very hot week and so when you went down the stairs to bed, it was lovely and cool. Whilst Dibble Cottage may be small, it is modern and lovely, clean and tidy and was ideal for a couple like ourselves. The welcome on the little chalkboard, plus the lovely artisan bread, milk and flowers, plus the bottle of prosecco were a lovely touch by the owner. We shall return. David & Carol.

The property

Dibble Cottage is a charming stone cottage in the heart of Reeth, within the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park.

A former garage, the cottage has been sympathetically converted to provide a romantic retreat with an unusual reverse-level layout.

Full of traditional cottage character, the sociable first floor living space features a comfortable sitting area with woodburning stove and a contemporary, well-equipped kitchen, whilst the ground floor bedroom comes with 100% cotton bed linen and an en-suite shower room.

A lovely blend of modern convenience meets traditional character with A-frame beams accentuating the old world atmosphere, ensuring guests a wonderful stay in beautiful Swaledale.

An outdoor seating area enjoys views towards Fremington Edge, the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee in the summer to kick-start your day.

Reeth boasts an extensive history and was once a lead mining town and centre for hand knitting.

Today the village offers a host of amenities, with a wide selection of pubs, shops, restaurants, and tea rooms, along with an ice cream parlour for picking up a sweet treat, a Post Office, a weekly market and its own museum, the seasonal Swaledale Museum, all of which are within walking distance of the property.

The market town of Leyburn is just a short drive away with its own fine range of independent shops, where you can pick up gifts for loved ones, as well as inns, eateries and stunning architecture to admire.

There is a selection of stunning walks to discover nearby, with well-marked footpaths winding their way through classic countryside.

Take a romantic riverside stroll or drive a short way to find the fantastic Aysgarth Falls, while an afternoon at Semerwater or Hardraw Force - England's highest single drop waterfall - is also not to be missed.

Explore the remarkable rural landscape of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, which boasts walking, cycling and horse riding opportunities amidst rolling hills and rugged moorland.

After an action-packed day of exploring, return to this romantic retreat, the perfect choice for enjoying Dales life at its finest.

About the location

REETH

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.
