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. James

    We had a great stay in Reeth and this place was the perfect base to explore the area! The cottage is well-equipped and surprisingly spacious. Our dog enjoyed sniffing around the garden and the fence is a good height.

  2. Michael

  4. Liz

    Lovely cottage with every you need and more. Feels like home from home. Enjoyed everything and cant suggest any areas of improvement.

  5. Stuart

    Enjoyed our Christmas stay at the Old Barn. It is small but the one room open plan downstairs is bigger than the photos suggest. Beds were comfy and house toastie warm despite snow outside. The place has everything you need for a great stay in one of the prettiest areas in the Dales.

  6. Lynne

    The cottage is just at the back of 2 of the pubs so nice and close to the green and great for my husband who is disabled. It is a lovely well equipped cottage with everything you need and it has plenty of space upstairs and downstairs. The garden is delightful and the cottage was immaculately clean. We would stay here again very happily.

  7. Martin

    Excellent cottage in a fab location Easy to walk from the door and plenty of choice to eat out .

  8. Gary

    Fantastic little cottage in the idyllic village of Reeth. Quiet location but only metres away from all local amenities and two nice pubs!! Dog friendly with a secure garden. Ideal for a couple with a dog. Would recommend and stay there again

  9. Ken

    Just a short step from the village green and all its amenities but a lovely, quiet location. The enclosed garden is a real sun trap and was perfect for our dog to enjoy being outside. Cottage has everything you need to enjoy your holiday. Only gripe would be that the seating could be more comfortable. That said, it would not stop me from booking the Old Barn again.

  10. Paul

    Travelled as a couple with our 2 black labs. The cottage was fine for our needs. The living room area is quite small but was ok for us with a sofa and arm chair and a lovely log burning fire. There is a tv with free view and good WiFi. There is a well equipped modern kitchen and dining table with 4 chairs to eat at. Upstairs are 2 bedrooms and modern bathroom. The double bed is nice and comfortable. To the rear of the property is a nice garden and there is ample parking. It is a little tight getting into the drive but no problem if you reverse in. The big winner of this property is the location. Reeth is a lovely place for exploring the Dales with 3 dog friendly pubs all serving food. The property is set back from the main road so it is nice and peaceful and everybody we spoke to including the neighbours were extremely friendly and welcoming. In summary we enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely return.
