Area Information

Swaledale is the most northerly dale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It was cut by the ancient River Swale which now makes its way through a series of picturesque villages before arriving at the bustling, market town of Richmond. Higher up heather moorlands stretch away, the only sound the bleat of sheep and the cry of curlew birds.

Frog House is in the hamlet of High Fremington, between the villages of Reeth and Grinton. It is situated on the Coast to Coast path so is surrounded by superb walking. For a challenging leg stretch head up Fremington Edge or Calvert Hill to enjoy superb views or for a more gentle wander, take the Swale river path. Cyclists are also spoilt for choice, from the family friendly Swale Trail to the demanding road itinerary used by the Tour de France or the off-road routes used by the Ard Rock festival. To find out more, and to hire bikes, visit the Dales Bike Centre just down the hill from Frog House.

Visitors who enjoy music and the arts should check out the Swaledale Festival programme well in advance. Held in May it brings together an eclectic ranges of cultural events. For those who enjoy being part of the farming community time your visit to coincide with the Reeth or Muker Agricultural shows. If you enjoy history then a visit to the Swaledale museum in Reeth is a must.

Food choices are also varied. To pick up provisions for eating in then the Friday market in Reeth has a good selection of fresh produce. If you are eating out then The Dales Bike Centre also has a great café, serving delicious lunches and cakes. Another contender for the best scone in Swaledale goes to Overton House in Reeth which has a lovely selection of savoury and sweet treats. Alternatively try out the Reeth Ice Cream Parlour for delicious homemade ice-cream. If you want a cosy pub then The Bridge in Grinton is hard to beat. For a special occasion dinner or Sunday lunch then head to the CB in Arkengarthdale. Or if you want to keep it simple, then join the queue for Ramsey’s Fish and Chip van, it arrives in Fremington about 3.50pm on Fridays!

There's always something happening in the area, with festivals and fairs held throughout the year. For more information on the surrounding area and local events see our Yorkshire Dales Guide and the Festivals & Events Guide.
