Accommodation Description

Tucked away in a quiet corner of the olde worlde, picturesque village of Langthwaite is Copley House, a traditional stone-built dales cottage and superb holiday home. Situated next to the babbling Arkle Beck and surrounded by the rugged and varied landscape of Arkengarthdale. Copley House is in an ideal location for any nature or outdoor enthusiast. It is also conveniently only a stone’s throw from the infamous Red Lion Pub which most will recognise from the opening scenes of the original All Creatures Great and Small.

The ground floor has recently been refurbished to a very high standard and now offers a stunning, modern, and spacious open plan living area. It is quite striking how delightfully bright and cheerful the living area is with large, double glazed windows allowing in lots of light. This with the addition of a mix of contemporary and traditional furnishings provides a very tranquil and peaceful setting to enjoy a restful holiday in the Yorkshire Dales.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all you should require during your stay with plenty of storage space and worksurface. There is a fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and dining table suitable for 4 people. The living space offers comfortable seating for 4 people around the wonderful wood burner, perfect to curl up in front of on cooler evenings. The cottage is heated throughout with oil central heating and benefits from free WiFi, flat screen TV and a skybox with freeview channels. Upstairs sleeps 4 people in two bedrooms, one double, one twin, with traditional beams plus a family bathroom.

Outside there is a small, enclosed patio area with bench seating for alfresco dining or enjoying a coffee on a summer’s morning. There is also an outhouse for secure bike storage and parking area for one car.

There are endless footpaths and bridleways straight from the door. From gentle low-level walks along the Arkle Beck to Reeth to higher more challenging hikes up Fremington Edge and Calver Hill. The area is also hugely popular for cycling with so many routes to choose from either on or off road. There is also bike hire available locally in Grinton at the Dales Bike Centre and the Swale Trail, which is a purpose-built off-road bike trail for families with young children who wish to ride together or perhaps have a pushchair or maybe limited mobility.

Langthwaite is an ideal base to explore the local area. Only 3 miles from the popular village of Reeth, that boasts many amenities such as pubs, restaurant, cafes, ice cream parlour, post office and gift shops. The highest pub in England is, The Tan Hill, which is only 8 miles away and certainly worth a visit. From Langthwaite you can also gain easy access to Barnard Castle, where you can visit attractions such as the Bowes Museum. Richmond is a Georgian market town with several attractions to visit such as the historic Georgian theatre, castle and Ellerton Abbey. Leyburn and Hawes are also popular market towns offering further amenities, pubs, cafes, supermarkets, restaurants. Hawes houses museums including the Wensleydale Creamery, Rope Makers and nearby is Middleham and Bolton Castle and the Forbidden Corner.

To ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible all bed linen and towels are provided and the electric and oil is included in the rental price.

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. ...

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. Hilary

    Perfect location. Lovely calm interior decoration – nothing fussy, quality furniture and fittings.

  2. Meredith

    Pleasant cottage in a nice location. Good base for a week in the Dales.

  3. Alex

    Lovely cottage in walking distance to two pubs and plenty of walks straight out of the door – perfect!

  4. Laura

    Copley House was wonderful, so clean and spacious enough for our family of four. The kitchen was spot on, the beds were comfy and the Red Lion was about a 30 second walk away (please not they don’t allow kids under 16 but did let us all in for a drink early doors). What a beautiful part of the world – I would highly recommend!

  5. Claire

    Lovely cottage in a very scenic location. Very cosy with the log burner – we came in February and the weather was somewhat erratic but managed to have some good sunshine in between howling wind and rain! Good access for walks from the doorstep. The CB inn was a nice pub 20 minutes walk away (also one right opposite which we didn’t get to try). Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet getaway!

  6. Chris and Katie
