  • "Excellent location in centre of Reeth."

    Lovely three bed cottage with excellent kitchen and lounge area. Very comfortable and well furnished. A table lamp or two in the living room would be welcome to avoid the glare of the overhead lights. We would definitely visit again.

  • "The cottage was comfortable, well presented and spotlessly clean."

    Perfectly positioned to make use of local facilities, pubs, shops etc and importantly to explore the North Dales. We very much hope to return and the fresh milk and biscuits were a welcome and appreciated welcoming touch. Our thanks.

  • "Had some difficulty getting the shower to provide an even temperature."

    It alternated between very hot or very cold. Nice and cosy after a day's walking and so handy for the pubs in Reeth.

  • "We could not have wished for a lovelier cottage for our stay."

    The owner seemed to think of everything that we may need - left some milk for us in the fridge and some lovely biscuits as a welcome. Everything was perfect - in fact probably one of the best cottages we have stayed in. The location was great and we were able to walk from the cottage to so many places without needing our car. We were exceptionally lucky with the weather too!

    He couldn't have a shower as there were no handrails for him to hold on too. And it would really benefit for hand rails outside the property to the door as he really struggled to get up and down the steps.

    A hidden Gem in the lovely village of Reeth, with access to local walks and the breathtaking Yorkshire Dales. If you want a place to relax in, escape city life and be surrounded by nature at its finest this place is for you. I will definitely be going again to this wonderful holiday retreat.

  • "The location of the property is perfect, nicely tucked down the alley between the pubs so no disturbances but with the beautiful village of Reeth so perfectly situated for exploring the area."

    Not complaints, just suggestions - It was pretty cold during our stay (although unfortunately no snow and definitely due to get colder) and the long curtains in the double bedroom covered the radiator and prevented the full heat impacting the room. With the radiator in the living room not working the main room did get pretty chilly and took a while to warm up using the electric fire. Again, not negatives as the cottage was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay!!

    Apologies for the radiator not working during your stay, We are currently waiting for the radiator to be repaired, Due to delays with DPD this is out of our control but looking to get this fixed as soon as possible. Thank you for your feedback and we apologise for the inconvenience. Property Owner

    Their property was built over this part of Kings Studio. This obviously cannot be changed but feel anyone hiring the cottage should know. Also it would be better if more large towels were provided for 3 persons. Apart from that it was a lovely cottage and excellent location.

    Overall cleanliness not up to Sykes usual standard- dust on draw handles, top of fridge, and surfaces.

Lights in bathroom full of dead insects which affects level of lights-Hannah says she will have fixed. Double bed is a bit hard.

  • "The property was lovely, clean, comfortable and quiet."

    As oldies we would have liked a hand rail next to the steps to the front door as it was quite difficult to negotiate as we were afraid of slipping. There was a leak from the washbasin but this was dealt with the same day. A full length mirror would have been useful. We really thought having to strip the beds of covers early on our last day was 'over the top'. After a nice relaxing week it was a bit much when you're in your 80s to be doing this which we felt should have been done by your cleaners. We understand about covid but there are masks and gloves and it's not expected of us in a b&b or hotel.

  • "These are not complaints!"

    1. Light above basin in bathroom does not work. 2.TV control instructions do not work as they are printed. It is possible to use the detailed manual to decipher what to do especially when moving from DVD to TV. 3. Surprising that the recycling is not carried out by the owner. 4. The armchair in the lounge is just not comfortable! It is virtually impossible to hold or put a cup of tea (or a glass!) on a side table and still reach it from the enormous depths of the chair! 5. The front door locking mechanism needs attention. The key jams in the lock very easily. However, there were many good points about the whole experience and our holiday was wonderful, visiting old haunts from over many years. Very useful OS and other maps as well as the really good walk leaflets. Excellent kitchen equipment made cooking evening meals very straightforward at the end of a long day.

    Thank you for your feedback and bringing these issues to my attention. Maintenance have attended the property and replaced the bathroom light and front door lock. The new furniture has already been ordered and meant to be in place, but has unfortunately been delayed due to the sofa company. I apologise that you had some issues with the recycling and television function. Instructions are provided for both in the guestbook, along with the number for the housekeeper for any such queries.

  • "The cottage was absolutely perfect."

    It was very well equipped with everything that was required for our weeks stay. It was easy to book, and I thought the price was about right. My only criticisms would be that it was missing a full size mirror, which I found a little frustrating, and the mattresses on both the double and single beds were sadly lacking in comfort. Other than that, I would have said the cottage had exceeded our expectations. The location was great, quiet but central to all amenities. Reeth is one of our all time favourite places and never fails to live up to expectations. Just so beautiful. Overall, another great stay in beautiful Reeth.

  • "To say it met expectations undersells the Kings Studio, it was lovely and I would thoroughly recommend it."

    It was spotlessly clean, toasty warm and had every we needed, including a comfy bed and a good hot shower. There are two lovely old pubs only a very short walk away, both of which serve excellent food, though the decor of one has sadly become Toby Carvery style. You can feel the building's embarrassment. I would caution against following your satnav all the way up the little road which takes you to the front door of the Kings Studio if you have a large/long vehicle. You can get back out, but it's not that easy. Better to just park in front of the pubs and shops.

  • "The cottage was, as I have found in previous visits, very clean and well maintained."

    I had expected that there might be no cushions etc on the couches, but was pleasantly surprised to find them just as comfortable as always. So even on the dreary, dull days I always felt warm and comfortable. I found that everything that I needed was available. The only thing that I really missed from home was that in the evening I like to listen to the radio and, for some reason, I was unable to tune into the radio channels on the television. This may have been due to the atmospheric conditions. Fortunately, I was able to use my laptop to listen in. I really enjoyed my stay in King's Studio and look forward to my next trip in April next year - weather and C**** 19 permitting!

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.
