Alma House description

Holiday home
Alma House is an attractive stone-built cottage situated in the small village of Reeth near to the town of Leyburn in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The cottage can sleep six people in two double and one twin bedrooms (one double is en-suite), as well as family bathroom. The rest of the cottage is made up of a kitchen, and a sitting room with dining area and woodburner and parking is available on the village green. Alma House is in a lovely part of Yorkshire just perfect to get away from it all.

The village of Reeth rests at the northern tip of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Reeth boasts a colourful history as it was originally a Saxon settlement. Reeth is well-served by traditional inns, with three to choose from.The historic market towns of Richmond and Leyburn are also within easy reach. Askrigg is just a short drive away as well as Aysgarth Falls, Semerwater and Hardraw Force (England's highest single drop waterfall at 99ft).

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

We were very impressed with Alma House, everything was of a good standard and we thoroughly enjoyed our weeks holiday. We have two small dogs and the area in the entrance where we could clean the dogs and leave our shoes and coats was a bonus. All the nearby pubs were dog friendly and we able to eat out each night. We will certainly be back!

Alma House is in a cracking location with walks from the doorstep and local pubs, cafes and shops just as close. The house was spotless and contained everything we needed. The open fire is lovely and easy to use. All in all we had a great week at Alma House and would definitely stay there again.

A great cottage in a lovely village. Reeth was wonderful and this cottage is close to everything, with plenty of space for 4 adults, 1 child, 2 babies and a small dog! The living space is the perfect size and having to park the car just round the corner on the green was no problem (it was very quiet in February). Highly recommend the walk up Gunnerside valley, a trip to Hawes and a mini Reeth pub crawl. The food at The Buck was excellent.

Really nice place to stay, everything inside was excellent and a really pleasant cottage to stay in. However, the parking "police" next door were a pain in the neck. You aren't allowed to park a car anyway near the rental, only for dropping off and if you don't move it straight away, you get a note on the windscreen and a knock on the asking you to move it "immediately". Could have spoilt what was a fine weekend away.

Plenty of space with good standard of accommodation. Very clean with added bonus of large screen TV in the lounge and flat screen TV in the master bedroom. Jack and Jill bathroom/shower and extra bathroom with separate toilet very comfortable for 2 couples. Good site near to the village green and pubs.

First I would like to say that the house was a great house to stay at and would have got 5 stars had it not been for a few niggles that only came about due to it being winter. The positives are location, cleanliness, log burner, comfiest beds in the world and just well appointed. Down sides. No central heating. Bit of a biggie this one as it was winter and we had no where to dry things (towels etc) and it was rather chilly. They did provide small storage heaters which did very little to warm the house. Or us. Next noisy plumbing. Caused a lot of hilarity at first as when the upstairs toilet flushed there were noises like a fog horn as the cistern filled. Owner it just needs new innards in the Torbeck valve. The downstairs toilet needs a new diaphragm in the syphon valve too. Last but not least the bed room with telly in becomes uninhabitable when windy. After a bit of investigation we found it was the vertical tiles on the outside of the dormer windows aren't attached right and make a hell of a clatter when the wind gets them. Two f us had to sleep in the living room when the wind was up. Hopefully these small items will get addressed as they spoil (to a small extent) what is a lovely property. As mentioned by others watch out for the parking police next door. Most unfriendly. If you don't like living next to a rental, move. It's easier being on the green anyway.
