Accommodation Description

Welcome to Marrick Moor House Cottage – a cosy, ‘get away from it all’ cottage in the stunningly beautiful surroundings of Swaledale and the unrivalled beauty of North Yorkshire; traditional villages dotted along Dales where rivers and streams tumble, dry stone walls stretch for miles and miles, expansive moorland where the air is fresh and isolation almost guaranteed, market towns which bustle with life and historic castles, abbeys and museums  can be explored.  The Yorkshire Dales and wider North Yorkshire, really do have to be experienced to be believed and Marrick Moor House Cottage is a great bolt hole to base yourself.

The ethos of the cottage is to enable you to have a comfortable, hassle-free holiday in an environment which feels warm, welcoming and easy.  The dining kitchen room is a light and fully functional space in which to cook, eat and enjoy views overlooking the surrounding countryside.  Kitchenware, crockery and space enable you to do as much or little cooking as you wish.  A small welcome pack of essentials (coffee, milk, bread, biscuits and a bottle of something!) will greet you on arrival.

The cottage is located in open countryside where rural life abounds; the birdsong includes the plaintive call of curlews, lapwings whirl, families of partridge and pheasants graze and at night owls hoot amongst a huge variety of other birds; hares chase across surrounding fields; flocks of sheep are regularly shepherded along the roads by local farmers; the light shifts and changes with the weather and night skies are properly dark!

The cottage garden has lawn, private driveway, 2 patio areas (one shaded by the small wooded area and the other in a sun trap immediately outside the door) and both have areas to comfortably eat alfresco or simply relax and enjoy the peace and beauty the space offers.  The garden is surrounded by traditional dry stone walling and is dog friendly ie it’s a safe and secure place for your pet(s) as long as gates are shut and your dog doesn’t like jumping high walls!

Walks, drives and bike rides are easy right from the cottage gates.  The cottage is situated very close to the pathway at the Fremington end of Fremington Edge – a walk along which will provide you with breath-taking views along both Swaledale and Arkengarthdale.  If you walk it’s length and follow Arkle Beck for a short distance, you’ll end up in the quaint village of Langthwaite with the Red Lion Pub at it’s centre where you can get a well earned refreshment (doesn’t do food other than a great range of snacks!).

The cottage is within walking distance of both Reeth and Grinton (approx. 2 miles away) where the nearest pubs can be found.  Small village shops, craft/gift shops, a local museum and post office are located in Reeth.  Dales Bike Centre, where you can hire bikes (E bikes included) and grab a drink and bite to eat in its new cafe is just down the road.  Most local pubs are dog friendly and provide food.  A wider range of shops, supermarkets, petrol stations and other eateries cam be found in Richmond (7 miles) and Catterick Garrison (approx. 10 miles).

For a change of pace, the cities of York, Leeds, Durham and Newcastle upon Tyne are all within an easy hour or so drive from the cottage as well as the larger and traditional Yorkshire towns of Harrogate, Ripon and Northallerton.  The North Yorkshire Moors and coastal areas including Whitby and Scarborough are also good day trips to be considered.

The cottage is a great place to come back to after a day exploring somewhere new or revisiting favourite places.  It is your own space for your stay but help and advice is on hand from the owners who live right next door if needed or wanted – their wish is for you to have a great holiday!

Oil fired central heating, all linens, electricity, basic cleaning items (including dishwasher tablets 1 per day, laundry detergent, washing up liquid) are included in the facilities provided. Free WiFi providing internet access is available.  The living room is small and cosy, providing space to relax and has television (with Amazon Firestick) and a games cupboard. A double and a twin-bedded bedroom, both with great views, have televisions and their own ensuite shower and wc rooms.  There is a cloakroom on the ground floor.  An awareness of environmental issues are part of life at Marrick Moor House and Cottage – compliance with using septic tank is needed i.e. using bins for disposal of all but loo roll and use of septic tank friendly cleaning products (supplied).

Dogs (max of 2) are welcomed free of extra charge.  Please be mindful of furniture and not allowing dogs either upstairs or to be left unattended.  Guests are kindly asked to ensure that the garden area is left free of dog waste and is cleared regularly during your stay.  The owners are dog friendly and have their own dogs.

Stunning scenery, huge vistas, familiar places (often used in film and tv), peace, nature, plenty to see and do for a great holiday are all on your doorstep whilst staying and relaxing into life at Marrick Moor House Cottage.

  1. Heike

    Our journey to the Dales was amazing. We’ll definitely come back. We love the area and did nice walks. We enjoyed the beautiful views we’ve got there.

  2. Jane

    The property worked well for us , 2 friends with 2 dogs . Garden was good and secure for our dogs . There was everything we needed at the cottage . The owners next door were very friendly and helpful. We did have wifi issues which I understand is tricky in remote places. I feel the listing should reflect this as if you did plan on working it would be tricky . A DVD player we felt would be very useful because of the wifi issues we had . We did have a fabulous stay and wouldn’t hesitate to return

  3. Barbara

    Perfect for the dog! Great garden, beautiful walks from the door. Many good local pubs reachable on foot.

  4. Katharina

    We spent 4 nights at the cottage and loved the tranquil, calm surroundings. Great walking routes straight from the doorstep. The cottage was clean and very well equipped (child friendly too!). Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a holiday filled with walks and outdoor activities.

  5. Nina

    A beautiful cottage in a stunning location. Waking up to views of rolling fields across the Dales is just wonderful. The cottage is excellently equipped with everything you could need, and it also has a fully enclosed, secure garden so perfect for kids or dogs. Location is great with walks straight from the front door, and lots of great places to explore a short drive away. We had a wonderful week and will definitely stay again if we return to this wonderful part of the world.

  6. Susan

    The cottage is well located for visiting Richmond and all the lovely Yorkhire villages around. We had some superb walks around Aysgarth, Hardrow Force and took in the Muker Agricultural Show. The cottage lounge is a little small for 3 people and two dogs but there was everything you would need in the cottage. Beds a little soft but comfortable and the cottage is cosy and warm. Hosts very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area and what to see and where to go.

  7. Andrew

  12. Richard

    The cottage was wonderful with fantastic views out across Swaledale. We were welcomed with tea, coffee , milk, biscuits and wine and lots of useful information about walks and places to go. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped with everything that we needed. And with a lovely garden as well. We really are made to feel welcome. The whole area was amazing – we stayed for two weeks and got out for great walks all around the area every day. We can highly recommend and will be looking forward to returning again.

  13. Jo

    A beautiful cottage with plenty of amenities, even a dishwasher! Everything was spotlessly clean and the en-suites looked brand new. Our hosts were very friendly and gave us plenty of useful information about the local area and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend this cottage which is in a beautiful rural area with many local walks and not too far to some lovely local villages and towns.

  14. Matthew

    Excellent place to stay with lovely and welcoming hosts. Would happily recommend this listing to anyone.

  15. Chris

    Excellent accommodation and everything well presented. Clean and warm with everything provided that you may need. Great location for exploring the Yorkshire dales. Pet friendly an added bonus.

  16. Elaine

    A lovely cottage in a beautiful and peaceful location with great views. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful and we were totally spoilt for choice with many walks from the door and within a short drive. A week wasn’t long enough and would definitely like to return.

  17. Jo

    A lovely cottage with great views and in an excellent location for exploring. We appreciated having wild moorland and the lovely town of Richmond both within an easy drive. E-bikes from the Dale’s Bike Centre are good fun and make the hills manageable! The cottage is comfy – we had everything we needed, as well as friendly hosts.

  18. Sally

    This is a fantastic cottage for a Yorkshire holiday. It has everything you could possibly need/want. The area of Swaledale is incredibly beautiful and there were lots of local walks to enjoy with our dog from the cottage, and picturesque villages like Reeth and Muker only a few minutes drive away. Would love to come back soon.

  19. Robert

    A lovely well equipped cottage in a very rural location. Hosts were helpful and very friendly. Lots to visit and do in and around the Dales. Relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

  20. Yvonne

    We really enjoyed our stay at Marrick Moor House. The location is tranquil. You can only hear sheep and birds. The picnic bench outside the back door meant you could sit in the beautiful garden for your meals (weather permitting) But the farmhouse kitchen was good for meals too and had everything you needed for cooking and eating in. There was plenty of space in the hall for walking gear, plenty of hot water. We mostly walked in and around Swaledale and wish we could have stayed longer to explore more of this beautiful part of the country. All in all a lovely stay. We were a couple in our fifties with a daughter in her twenties and a small dog who could safely be let to run around outside.

  21. Austin

    A brilliant spot in the Dales from where you can easily explore local beauty spots and get to nearby towns and villages. It’s remote and wonderfully quiet. Perfect hosts, was lovely to meet them and some of the four legged residents too!

  22. Graeme

    A lovely well equipped cottage in beautiful surroundings. Deborah, the owner, is very pleasant and happy to help with any needs, not that we had any.

  23. Gwilym

    I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. Fantastic location and very welcoming hosts. The cottage was incredibly clean and well supplied, the welcome pack was a very nice touch. We had a wonderful holiday here and we’ll definitely be back.
