The scenery all around is real picture-postcard stuff, with ancient old drystone barns peppering the dramatic hills and valleys. And with no streetlight pollution for miles around, the stars at night are dazzling. There are many towns and villages to visit nearby.

The charming village of Low Row (5 miles) is just one of many that offer incredible views of the surrounding landscape of Swaledale. A walker's paradise, there are some beautiful trails such as the circular walk around Blades (5.5 miles away) and the famous Coast to Coast Walk that passes nearby. This is also supreme cycling country with routes from most of the villages. Why not challenge yourself and some friends to take on the mighty Buttertubs Pass, 5.5 miles away.

Aysgarth (10 miles) boasts many great options to eat and if you visit in spring, you can''t leave without a visit to Freeholders'' Wood where bluebells, anemones and primroses will be in full bloom.

Reeth (9 miles) is often referred to as ‘the capital of Swaledale''. It is a delightful village with some stunning panoramic views and scenery. It also has a range of shops and restaurants to choose from and a regular market. There is plenty of heritage to find out about as Reeth once played a vital role in the lead-mining industry. Lots of outdoor activities are available at centres in the area, such as fishing, canoeing, caving, climbing, and abseiling.

Larger Richmond (22 miles) is a charming market town on the borders of Wensleydale and Swaledale. It boasts an 11th-century castle, fine Georgian architecture, a historic Georgian theatre and a large cobbled market square as some of its many attractions. There are also lots of tearooms and restaurants. The River Swale runs through the town and less than a mile across the river are the River Swale Waterfalls. You can walk in either direction along the river and deep into the countryside. We recommend exploring the restored former Richmond Railway Station which has lots to entertain young and old.

We also recommend taking a tour of the Swaledale and Arkengarthdale Dales Trail, a circular route which passes through Low Row and takes you through some of the most dramatic scenery in the UK. This land of Viking place names, waterfalls, rivers and ravines is like nowhere else on the planet, don't forget to take the camera. And on the way back down you can stop for lunch at one of the amazing pubs in the area.

The historic village of Easby, home to Easby Abbey is just 20 miles away and is the perfect spot for a picnic. As are Aysgarth Falls (10.5 miles) which were featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves!

For surreal entertainment, visit the quite brilliant Forbidden Corner, an attraction full of statues and hidden surprises, 19 miles away near Middleham.

Lovely comfortable cottage furnished to a high standard for 4 in a great location close to an excellent pub and beautiful walks. Great village and very friendly locals. We would have no hesitation in returning.

Reviewed by Ruth 31st July 2019

Brookside was a lovely cottage, beautifully decorated and in keeping with the age of the property, although modernised to a very high standard. Fixtures and fittings were of a high standard and we enjoyed our stay. As there is no rear garden and so we sat in the front and enjoyed talking to walkers and some local people who were happy to see the coRead morettage in use. It is a small village but with a local pub, lovely cafe and local shop, lovely art gallery and a really special knitwear shops Hide
