Accomodation Description

The Bothy is a quaint one bedroom Yorkshire Dales holiday cottage situated amidst the wooded hillside within the grounds (but, out of sight) of Thiernswood Hall, Healaugh. A wonderful position in which to explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Bothy used to be Thiernswood Hall’s grooms accommodation, but has since been converted and has become a popular holiday cottage in Swaledale that radiates with the Yorkshire Dales’ character and charm.

This traditional Dales holiday cottage feels extremely secluded, tucked around the rear of the neighbouring holiday cottage known as Thiernswood Cottage. The Bothy is accessed via a private stone paved path, with the approach feeling quite magical, with the babble of the stream and the enchantment of the ancient woodland that surrounds you.

You’ll feel immediately at home when entering this accommodating holiday cottage. The kitchen is traditional and compact but, is extremely well equipped to cater more than adequately for your holiday. The dining table seats two comfortably with a view to The Bothy’s private garden and patio area at the front of the cottage.

Down the hall you will reach the modernised bathroom, which is light and airy. To the left is the spacious, and tastefully decorated living room. The living room boasts wonderful views across the immediate farmland to the Swaledale valley and beyond. There are two very comfortable armchairs positioned perfectly in front of the electric log effect stove which adds additional heat to the slim line electric storage heaters should it be required. From the living room you can access the double bedroom which is finished in neutral décor and again has wonderful views across Swaledale.

The Bothy is accessed via a tree lined drive which leads to the large grounds of Thierswood Hall. (This well maintained drive is approximately one third of a mile from the road.) On approach to The Bothy you will see garage parking to your right. This can also be used for the safe storage of outdoor equipment such as bikes or climbing gear.

To ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible all bed linen and towels are provided in the rental charge. The electricity is on a meter, the initial £5.00 is included.

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. Beyond the immediate surrounds the village is overlooked by the stunning fells of Fremington Edge and Calver Hill which we can guarantee will provide a stunning backdrop to your visit. ...

Low Row

The Coast to Coast walk passes very close by the village but for those that are not so keen on such a challenge, there are many less strenuous walks in the area. For example, there is a beautiful walk that takes you nearly all the way to Grinton on the banks of the River Swale at the foot of the valley. Whilst you stroll along the river bank you can take in the stunning views of the rolling hills either side of you, which is stunning on a summers day! ...

  1. Anonymous

    The Bothy has everything two people need if you’re just wanting somewhere to base yourselves while enjoying stunning Swaledale and its numerous and varied walking routes. It’s also close enough to walk into Reeth if you fancy sampling a meal or light refreshment at one of the pubs or cafes there. In addition, the owners were very friendly and made us feel very welcome.

  2. Claire

    A gorgeous hidden gem , we never saw a sole , total seclusion and a very cozy cottage.

  3. Frances

    Very good, prompt responses. If it had to be a wet, cold June, the bothy was a warm and comfortable place to be.

  4. Sukyinder

    Lovely setting. Love the walk into the cottage. Didn’t spend great deal of time in the cottage but was just right. Would recommend.

  5. Jay

    Spent 2 nights in the cottage and I must say it was a pleasure staying there. A very quintasential cottage with some of the best views I have ever seen. Highly recommend this place if, like me, you are just there to get away from the daily grind and want to stay somewhere secluded and without a need of a phone.
    I’ll definitely be back. Thank you Janet for settling us in.

  6. Ian

    A truly beautiful setting and a very cosy cottage. Hosts were most welcoming and I will certain stay again.

  7. Brian

    We had a lovely time at the Bothy which is perfectly situated to explore the dales and moors of the surrounding countryside. The place is clean and well equipped and the hosts were very friendly, kind and considerate towards us. I heartily recommend it.

  8. Name Unknown

    The Bothy was lovely, really comfortable and clean. It was so quiet which is something you can only get in such a tranquil place. We had such a nice week, the weather was great, we walked miles in the beautiful countryside. The walks were straight from the door and we tied them in with some stops in the local country pubs in Reeth and Low Row.
    The owners were welcoming and friendly, they offered helpful suggestions as to places to visit and things to do. The cottage is also perfect for anyone that loves birds as we saw so many different varieties as we sat in the garden. And of course the chatty geese that welcomed us home each day!
    We will definitely be back as we loved our holiday here.

  9. Paula

    The property was clean and well kept. In a very peaceful location and, although off the beaten track, close to a good number of places to have lunch or an evening meal. Take sufficient groceries for your stay as there are no supermarkets nearby. This wasn’t a problem for us as we know the area well.
    The meals at The Punch Bowl in Low Row were superb but the menu was not changed daily as their advertising brochure suggested. However there was a good variety of starters, mains and desserts and no problem with catering for our dairy free requirements.

  10. Rhona

    For an away from it all holiday, The Bothy proved to be ideal. Set in picturesque Swaledale, a dale with a character all its own, the location was quiet and very relaxing. The apartment was very warm and cosy with all anyone would need for their stay. There were interesting places to visit locally and in the surrounding area, the roads were good though obviously somewhat restricted in the dale, but travelling over the moor into Wensleydale afforded more open vistas and increased the number of places to visit should you wish. A warm welcome awaits the visitor to this lovely part of Britain.

  11. Jane Elizabeth

    Beautifully decorated and well equipt cottage. Really comfortable bed. The setting is in the most lovely part of the dales with superb walks all round. Loved our welcome bottle of wine. So peaceful which is what we both needed. Would highly recommend this cottage to couples who want to get away from it all, but with plenty of beautiful villages in near reach.
