About Janet Hughes

Swaledale Cottages is a small family run business which has been in existence since 1977. Over those years we have had several properties in different locations in the Dales and now proudly offer three cottages in lovely locations in or near the village of Healaugh (nr.Reeth) in Swaledale. We have a policy of continuous improvement so all of our cottages are both pristine and well equipped. The two properties cater for 2 and 4 people and we have moved towards en-suite facilities. Although all our cottages are 4 Star perhaps the best measure of the satisfaction of our customers is the large number of customers who return again and again. We have customers who have been coming to our cottages every year for the past 20 years and now children of customers are bringing their loved ones.

Delightful cottage in a peaceful location

We spent a wonderful week at Thiernswood Cottage. It is very well equipped and is located in a peaceful area with views across the moors and with easy access to visitor attractions. The owners were very welcoming and we look forward to future visits.

Map

Travel:

Durham and Tees Valley Airport approx. 50 mins drive. Darlington Raiolway Station approx. 45 mins.

Distances:

The post office, shops and pubs are two miles away at Reeth. Richmond is located at the foot of the Dale. We are surrounded by castles, waterfalls and spectacular countryside. We have a genuine operating Georgian theatre in Richmond. The Bowes Museum, The Green Howards Regimental Museum, and the Dales Museum are all close by as is The Wensleydale Creamery and Theakstons and Black Sheep breweries.

Further Details:

The area is essentially walking country and you will find much to enjoy as you tramp the heather moors, ford the streams or pause to admire the handiwork of dry stone wall builders.

Reeth is the main village in the centre of the Dale. It has a large village green surrounded by stone built houses, country shops, pubs and tea shops. In the nearby village of Low Row you will be able to visit a working farm. Hazel Brow Farm is an ideal day out, especially for younger children. Richmond is located at the foot of the Dale and boasts an impressive castle with a fine Norman Keep. It is also home of the Royal Georgian Theatre which is over 200 years old. The Green Howards Museum commemorates the origins of the oldest regiment in the British Army. In Upper Swaledale, the unique Butter Tubs Pass leads through to Wensleydale.
