Accommodation Description

4 Swallowholm Cottages is situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park in a small hamlet within Arkengarthdale surrounded by magnificent scenery, numerous fell walks, and bike rides straight from the door, plus, only two thirds of a mile to the tremendously popular CB Inn.

This fascinating cottage was originally a miner’s cottage and now a fabulous Grade II listed holiday home, suitable for both couples, families and friends holidaying together. The cottage has recently been tastefully decorated with high quality furnishings throughout to provide very comfortable accommodation for up to 4 people.

Enter the property into an entrance hall which offers a spacious area for muddy boots and wet coats. The cottage offers unusual upside-down accommodation to maximise the views from the open plan living room and kitchen area upstairs. The living room has high quality furnishings and seating which surrounds the multi-fuel stove and overlooks the fields and fells opposite the cottage, where wildlife including a variety of birds, rabbits and the occasional deer can be spotted. The kitchen offers plenty of storage and workspace with a dining table for up to 6 people.

Downstairs there are two well-presented bedrooms, one double bedroom and one twin bedroom. The family bathroom is downstairs with 3-piece bathroom suite with shower over bath. Outside the cottage there is a handy bench to start the day with a morning coffee or to relax with a glass of wine after a day in the fells.

The cottage is heated throughout by modern and powerful electric radiators. There is free unlimited WIFi available within the cottage and a digital TV with Sky for cosy nights in.

Locally there is, as mentioned, the CB Inn which serves fantastic food and has an extensive list of well-kept ales and fine wines. In the heart of Langthwaite, about 1.5 miles from the cottage is The Red Lion, a small quirky pub, with a fantastic landlady who is a fountain of knowledge for the area. In the opposite direction, about a 20-minute drive away, there is the famous Tan Hill Inn, the highest pub in England. The cottage is only a short, scenic, 4-mile drive into the popular village of Reeth with character buildings, proper Yorkshire pubs serving great food, the Burgoyne Hotel with restaurant and bar, cafes, ice cream parlour, gift shops, art centre, museum and post office for essentials.

The cottage is situated perfectly for exploring both the northern dales and a little further afield you can easily access Barnard Castle, County Durham and the North Eastern Lake District which is approximately an hour away. Also worth a visit is the Georgian Market town of Richmond with a fantastic castle, abbey, and Georgian theatre. The bustling market towns, Leyburn and Hawes both hold weekly markets and have numerous eateries and have essential amenities such as supermarkets and petrol stations.

4 Swallowholm is one of our dog friendly cottages, we accept 2 well-behaved dogs. The Dales are very dog friendly and most pubs in the area will accept dogs in the bar sections as do many of the cafes.

Please note that the cottage is approached by a farm track about 100 metres from the main road. There is designated parking for all 6 cottages in the terrace. 4 Swallowholm has 1 designated space for 1 vehicle. You are welcome to pull outside the cottage to unload and load your vehicle, before parking in the designated space.

The history of Reeth dates way back to the 18th Century, where it used to be the capital of the lead mining industry and a local centre for hand knitting, with a population of 1,460. However, the area has evolved into the centre of the beautiful farming community that we see today. At the heart of Reeth is a triangular green, surrounded by the local community, pubs, teas rooms, restaurant and gift shops.

    It seemed better than described on the listing. Quiet and peaceful surroundings overlooking a beautiful valley and river. The house was clean with all the amenities for a comfortable stay. Hannah was one of the quickest to respond hosts I’ve ever come across on Airbnb. She always responded to any message, literally within minutes.
