Occupying a tranquil spot in a quiet North Yorkshire hamlet, this traditional 18th-century stone cottage makes a characterful hideaway for couples enjoying a romantic break in the Yorkshire Dales. Offering spacious and relaxing accommodation for two guests, the sympathetically updated property has a wealth of original features including timber beams, exposed stonework, cute window seats and a pretty garden. Set in the heart of Swaledale, with views towards Calver Hill and Harkerside Moor, this colourful and quirky retreat provides a wonderful spot for discovering the region’s quaint villages and dramatic moorlands.

Entering this picturesque cottage, the cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is an ideal space for you both to unwind in. The lounge has wooden ceiling beams and an eye-catching exposed stone wall as well as a charming wood burner and a romantic dining area. A step leads up to the stylishly equipped kitchen. Upstairs, the first floor features a relaxing bathroom and a beautifully furnished, tastefully decorated king-size bedroom with lovely country views. Outside, the delightful south-facing front garden has plenty of outdoor furniture and an array of beautiful plants and flowers, making a lovely spot to settle back with a quiet drink and take in the stunning scenery.

Enjoying a quiet location in the spellbinding northern part of the Yorkshire Dales, the secluded hamlet of Healaugh is just over a mile from the friendly village of Reeth (the capital of Swaledale), which has a welcoming choice of pubs, cafes and shops. Walkers can head north to Calver Hill (1 mile) or immediately south onto Harkerside Moor. Other attractions in this breathtaking area include Grinton Moor Smelt Mill, Aysgarth Falls and Bolton Castle, all within 11 miles.

A lovely cosy cottage in a delightful village. Perfect size for two people with the added bonus of a private and charming garden at the front of the cottage. The location was perfect for exploring Swaledale and just a mile walk along the river through wildflower meadows to Reeth. Not far from Muker, Keld, Askrigg and the scenery is stunning. The owRead moreners were very friendly but unobtrusive and a delicious chocolate cake awaited our arrival along with tea, coffee, sugar and milk. Hide

This is a cosy cottage set in a very picturesque party of Yorkshire. Its very well equipped and is a place to really get away from it all. The owners were kindly able to provide us with secure bike storage in their garage which was very useful. The village of Reeth is just a mile away. We ate at the Buck which serves food all day and also had coffeRead moree and cake at the Copper Kettle. Both highly recommended. The corner shop is also well equipped. Hide

The cottage is lovely, welcoming and very comfortable - a perfect home from home. Easily one of the nicest cottages I have stayed in. Our hosts were very gracious. My Labrador Clemmie was very happy there as well. We had a delightful week of walks and exploring beautiful Swaledale, not even dampened much by the rain. We will certainly return.

Lovely old cottage, with a delightful small garden. The cottage was well equipped and it was lovely to arrive to tray set out with tea , ground coffee and a delicious chocolate cake. There was milk and a bottle of chilled water in the fridge. It was an ideal place to explore the area with lots of places to visit. It was lovely to just walk down to Read morethe river and walk along the riverbank. There were some delightful places to eat too. Kathy and Krishna were very welcoming and helpful. Hide

The cottage is small, well equipped and nicely presented. The bed is very comfortable. It is a cottage for walkers as there are wonderful walks right from the door and an easy one and a half mile walk into Reeth along the riverbank or across the fields.
