Accommodation Description

Garbutt Cottage sits on the high green of Langthwaite village, Arkengarthdale, a dale known for the outstanding and unspoilt natural beauty. Garbutt Cottage is a wonderfully cosy, compact Yorkshire Dales holiday cottage that neatly houses all you should require for your holiday. The holiday cottage has been tastefully decorated using very neutral colours which adds to the relaxing environment that the owners where so keen to achieve.

This dales holiday cottage offers very comfortable furnishings including a wood burner stove in the living room and electric storage heaters if additional heating is required. The holiday cottage is very suited to a couple wishing to have a romantic break due to its idyllic location, and it is only a short walk from the local pub, The Red Lion. The CB Inn is also nearby which offers a popular restaurant which is perfect for a romantic meal. However there is an additional room with a single bed and a stowaway guest bed, which provides further accommodation for adults.

The loveable element of Garbutt holiday Cottage is the relaxing feeling you gain ‘away from the hustle and bustle’. The south facing garden is a delight during the summer months, offering you a place to relax in the garden reading your book or enjoying the time with your friends and family with the delightful babble of the beck as it runs alongside the section of the garden which is fenced off. What’s more, to the rear are fields, and through the trees you see the Calver Hill where the Curlews call. Sitting proudly opposite Garbutt Cottage nestling amidst the dramatic scenery is St Mary’s Church, which is a beautiful piece of architecture that compliments the landscape.

Garbutt Cottage is in an ideal location to explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Teesdale and Cumbria, and very near to the market towns of Leyburn and Hawes over the Butter Tubs Pass which is a drive that should not be missed! It is also central to many of the well-known walks and cycle routes so perfect if you want to explore this area of outstanding natural beauty.

Garbutt Cottage is one of our dog friendly holiday cottages, one well behaved dog welcome. The garden is of good size and there are walks locally which make this dales holiday cottage an ideal choice if you are looking for pet friendly accommodation.

To ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible all bed linen, towels and kitchen linen is provided and electric and initial basket of logs 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. ...

  1. Samuel

    Lovely place nice quiet part of Yorkshire dales

  2. Andrew

    Lovely little cottage in fantastic location. Very enjoyable few days exploring the local area.

  3. Marianne

    The property was great. Perfect size for the 4 of us. Great floors by entry doors to get the dog wiped down after a walk on the moors or in the woods. The kitchen was really well provided for with everything you need. We had some problems getting the key safe open but when we called from the nearby pub (no phone signal at the cottage) they came straight away to sort it.

  4. Ronald

    Lovely little cottage, cosy, superb location. Do remember to download instructions as there is no phone connection. We had to have tea and borrow the WiFi at the local pub! It was a great place to eat and only a short walk away. There is a good range of equipment but no perishable items, so go prepared. There is a lovely little garden with a stream behind, well protected for your dog as it is all fenced.

  5. Pete

    Very comfortable well equipped and clean. Traditional layout on a sloping site means some compromise but we (average fit 75s) had no problem. Nice garden with pleasant view, dog secure. Good parking for one medium car. Lovely easy walks on the doorstep. Local area is spectacular. Helpful agent. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  6. Paul

    Great location

  7. Ian

    Great accommodation. Small but perfectly formed. Sat nav directions slightly off.

  8. Becki

    We had a lovely stay in Langthwaite. The cottage was warm and cosy and great location for walking but also visiting Reeth, Tan Hill and Richmond in particular. Easy check in and generally good facilities

  9. Paul

    We stayed on probably the coldest weekend of 2022, the wood burner was a god send! Very clean, comfy beds, and superb location. Shame no tea or coffee but l had read previous guests had mentioned this, so my bad for not taking any!!

  10. Linda

    A very quaint cosy cottage in a beautiful area, clean, comfortable and well appointed.

  11. Ernesto

    Beautiful cottage in a lovely location. Ideal for family and dog walkers. Shame that when we arrived there wasn’t no tea or coffee at the property , needed after a long and cold day . Overall lovely few days. If I can make a suggestion a bit more stuff on the welmlcome pack just for the simple reason that the shop are to far away so when you arrive you are covered. Thank you ??

  12. George

    Great communication throughout.

  13. Mike

    This was our fourth time at Garbutt Cottage and we love it. It’s perfect for what we want which is somewhere quiet as we have a very sensitive dog, but with a pub on the doorstep. For two people and a dog it’s ideal but with the additional bedroom more people can be accommodated. Everything that you require is in the cottage. Electric storage heaters provide the warmth during the winter and most of them are pre-programmed. But they can be adjusted. There’s also a log burner if you fancy a challenge!! The only thing that would make things better – WiFi and a phone signal. But there is WiFi in the nearby pub and you can take a walk to the top of the nearby hill if you’re desperate for a phone signal – or just jump in the car. All in all a great holiday cottage.

  14. Liz, Herts

    We have rediscovered Garbutt Cottage after about 16 years. We last stayed here when our kids were toddlers. Left them behind this time and have run and walked miles (even to Tan Hill and back!). Eaten well, loved the views and we had snow! (for about 10 minutes). We’ll be back again that’s for sure.

  15. Tracey Purdell, Nottinghamshire

    My first visit to Garbutt, have loved it. Cottage is a cosy home from home, really relaxing environment. Even did a walk! Sun came out too – perfect! CB Inn food is immense!

  16. The Watsons, Lincoln

    Cottage and garden beautiful. Managed to walk nearly every day. Lots of wild life seen. Recommend the Bridge Inn at Grinton, lovely food and beer.

  17. The Kirks, North Lincoln

    Back again! Enjoyed some familiar walks and found some new ones. Weather mixed but some lovely sunny days among the wet ones! Thoroughly recommend the museum for rainy day visit. Look forward to next visit.

  18. Jeannie and Mary, Kent

    Had a great time. Visited many local attractions as well as enjoying local walks. Great food and welcome at the CB Inn. Cosy, warm and comfortable in you lovely cottage.

  19. The Williams, Hertfordshire
