The owners were lovely people, very welcoming. I certainly had a wow when showed the entrance to kitchen, lounge and dining area and out to the rear patio garden with views of sheep grazing behind a perfect stone wall. The upstairs was even more of a wow, hotel style and quality with even better views of the hills of Swaledale. The village of Reeth is near to walk to either by road, but better still by track and river Swale. It had everything of good quality you need; excellent pub food, tea shops and bakery. The cottage was better than Home from Home!
