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.
