Accommodation Description

Bridge End is an enchanting haven for up to three guests, set in the picturesque village of Langthwaite in Arkengarthdale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

This cosy holiday cottage has a wonderful mix of modern amenities blended with original features including natural stonework, flagged floors, beamed ceilings and a wood burning stove in the living room – perfect for unwinding after a day exploring the Dales and surrounding areas.

We are dog friendly and welcome visitors with four-legged family members (dog dishes provided). We ask that you please heed local guidance regarding keeping dogs on a lead around farmstock.

As you enter Bridge End there is a comfortable living room with a wood burning stove that leads through into a well equipped farmhouse kitchen and dining area. From the kitchen, double doors open on to a peaceful patio area overlooking the Arkle Beck, a perfect spot for a morning coffee or relaxing on a summer evening.

Upstairs the main bedroom has a king-size bed, wardrobe and dresser with open truss ceiling, wood flooring and open views to the front. A second, petite bedroom has a single bed and is ideal for a child. The bathroom is accessible from the landing with a walk-in shower, wash basin, W.C. and heated towel rail.

To the front is a forecourt with adequate space for parking one car. Additional cars can be parked at the parking area as you enter the village, a short walk away.

There are an abundance of walks and cycle routes in the area, many of which are accessible straight from the cottage including walks along the Arkle Beck or more challenging hikes up Calver Hill or Fremington Edge, and numerous mountain and road bike rides.

There are two pubs within walking distance of the holiday cottage. The Red Lion, a fantastic traditional Yorkshire Dales pub, less than 100 yards away, with a wonderful landlady, who has been serving locals and visitors for almost 60 years. She is a fountain of local knowledge. A ten minute walk further up the dale is the CB Inn, a gastro pub renowned for its locally sourced food, extensive wine and gin lists and various real ales. Sunday lunch at the CB is a must.

Reeth is a short 3-mile drive away with amenities such as three pubs (all dog friendly). There are also several cafes, an ice cream parlour, two bakeries, gift shops, a Post Office, the Swaledale Museum and arts and crafts centre, Swaledale bike centre, the hub of road and mountain biking in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Every Friday Reeth has a wonderful market on the green where you can get excellent local cheese, meat and veg.

The location of the cottage is perfect for exploring the area and is within easy reach of Barnard Castle,  Richmond and Leyburn. All are about 30 minutes’ drive and have pubs, eateries, butchers, and supermarkets. Richmond is also home of Richmond Castle, a Georgian Theatre, Easby Abbey and lovely riverside walks.

No smoking is permitted in the cottage.

Langthwaite is one of the few villages in Arkengarthdale, North Yorkshire. It is also the largest and the main settlement in the dale and only 3 miles north of Reeth. The road leading to Langthwaite from Reeth is winding and unfenced, sheep roam freely and there are fantastic views of the rugged and wild landscape that is so defining of Arkengarthdale. ...

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. ...

Richmond was founded by the Normans in 1071, and is overflowing with history, mostly centred around one of the finest tourist attractions in North Yorkshire – Richmond Castle. The castle, finished in 1086, is one of the greatest Norman fortresses in the UK and well worth a visit, not only to hear the history of the unruly North but to see the stunning views of the Dales from the castle keep and the tranquil Cockpit garden. ...

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. Mike

    The cottage is ideally located for exploring the moors and the surrounding areas. We did several day trips from the area. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay with our dog and 15 month old daughter. There are limited shops in the area so just remember to stock up on your way. There are several great pubs and cafes in Reeth (short drive) and the CB Inn a 15 minute walk. Overall a well recommended stay for anyone considering a break to Yorkshire!

  2. Paula

    Lovely little cottage in very quiet location, no local amenities though so pack essentials as you have to drive to nearest shops. Lovely walk along river and through fields. The cottage is equipped with everything you need, a little welcome pack would have been a nice gesture but other than that everything was just as expected. Weather was perfect and it was nice to sit outdoors on patio area overlooking stream.

  3. Lucy

    Had a lovely stay at Bridge End. The location was very quiet and picturesque but a little drive away from amenities.

  4. Fiona

    Lovely property with great views.

  5. Sean

    Lovely place to stay! The place was spotless and in a beautiful setting! Thank you

  6. Faye

    What a beautiful part of the world – we’re so very lucky here in Yorkshire! The property was beautiful, comfortable, clean and warm. The surrounding are views just incredible. We didn’t venture to the very nearby Red Lion as they aren’t dog friendly but The CB Inn was lovely – welcoming, very friendly, warm, nice bar offers and good grub. Discovered the wonderful sculptor Michael Kosz in Reeth – also the Two Dales Bakery and cafe – lovely! Drove up to The Tan Hill – the highest pub in Britain. Had a wonderful time and would definitely visit again. Thank you!

  7. Dominic

    Great little place in the heart of the dales. Really well kitted out, warm and very comfortable

  8. Hayley

    Absolutely gorgeous little cottage! My partner and I and our two dogs loved our stay at Bridge End. Place was spotless and so cozy! Loved the log burner! Lovely views and walks and the local pubs/cafes and shop in Reeth are highly recommended. Hannah was a super helpful host, the cottage really is a credit to the owner. We will be back! Thank you xx

  9. Nicholas

  10. Becky

    Adored our little cottage break. Peaceful and relaxing. We will be booking again.

  11. Trevor

    Well furnished and equiped cottage with lovely walks from the front door.

  12. Emily

    Had a really lovely time, great walks near by and amazing views. Biggest supermarket is 30 mins away so might be worth going there before coming to the house.

  13. Gil gray

    Beautiful cottage. Everything you need.go prepared as very remote ie shops but amazing location.very comfortable even though I had a horrible bug whilst there still felt at home. Need to visit again to enjoy surrounding landscape

  14. Jennifer

    Very quaint and delightful cottage in the heart of the most amazing village. Lots of great walks on your doorstep!

  15. Nea

    A cosy cottage, tastefully furnished and comfortable. Very handy for the pub in lovely Langthwaite with walks from the door.

  16. Simon

    Fantastic home in a fantastic location, will be back! Thanks!

  17. Jane

    The cottage was cosy, and stylishly furnished with natural materials. In a lovely setting by the Beck, it was a great base to explore the beautiful countryside nearby. Having the Red Lion pub a few minute’s walk away was a bonus.We had a problem with the radiator in the bedroom, which Hannah dealt with very promptly. We enjoyed our stay.

  18. James

    Cottage perfect for the two of us well equipped[apart from no corkscrew] ,local pub excellent.

  19. Philip

    Nice little cottage.

  20. Persefoni

    Absolutely loved the cottage. Felt right at home. Quaint and comfortable. I hope to return soon

  21. Marilyn

    Absolutely beautiful cottage in the quiet splendor that is the Yorkshire Dales! Everything we needed in the cottage and as we knew it would be remote, we made sure to shop on the way to the cottage.

  22. Geraldine

    Very happy with the cottage, exactly as advertised. We knew parking was for one car only. Nearby car park was helpful. Everything was clean on our arrival and very well equipped. Enough firewood for log burner for first night and instructions clear on how to operate and where to buy more. My only problem was access, never having used a key safe before couldn’t work out how to get key out once we had put in code. A phone call from a nearby phone box to Hannah had it sorted. Very quaint cottage, lots of thought gone into kitting it out. Will be back.

  23. Claire

    A beautiful little cottage in an ideal spot. Easy to find, simple check-in and everything necessary for a short break away in the countryside. Perfect for two people, but if you are above average height be prepared to duck several times when moving around! As described, not really suitable for those with mobility problems or those with small children. More than adequate kitchen equipment for cooking, though only a small amount of space available for storing food. No ice box/freezer either. Beds with crisp, fresh linen were extremely comfortable and with dark skies and silence at night, we slept well. Shower was excellent too. Lovely outside area overlooking the Beck, perfect for a morning brew or evening glass of wine. We stayed for 5 days and managed trips out to Durham, Richmond and Barnard Castle. Great walks though from the doorstep and two pubs within easy walking distance. Would recommend and would certainly visit again.

  24. Jacqui

    Traditional Yorkshire cottage by a babbling brook.

  25. Andrew

    Great location. Thanks for the stay

  26. David

    We had a great stay here. Perfect size and location for us as a couple on a walking holiday. Host was responsive and helpful.

  27. Andrew

    Quirky property that has been modernised to a very high standard. Great location to explore the Yorkshire Dales. One point if you take your dog: there is no enclosed area to let your dog out for a comfort break. You need to put them on the lead to take them out. This is made clear in the listing.

  28. Nick

    Wonderful countryside with interesting traces of former lead industry. Attractive villages and glorious walks to be had.

  29. Simon

    Fantastic location.
