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.

A truly beautiful setting and a very cosy cottage. Hosts were most welcoming and I will certain stay again.
Thank you for your lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Clean,cosy and beautifully situated
We had a lovely time at the Bothy which is perfectly situated to explore the dales and moors of the surrounding countryside. The place is clean and well equipped and the hosts were very friendly, kind and considerate towards us. I heartily recommend it.
Thank you for your lovely feedback. It was a pleasure to meet you and hopefully we can welcome you back in the future.
Such a cute, quaint cottage, so quiet and peaceful.
The Bothy was lovely, really comfortable and clean. It was so quiet which is something you can only get in such a tranquil place. We had such a nice week, the weather was great, we walked miles in the beautiful countryside. The walks were straight from the door and we tied them in with some stops in the local country pubs in Reeth and Low Row.
The owners were welcoming and friendly, they offered helpful suggestions as to places to visit and things to do. The cottage is also perfect for anyone that loves birds as we saw so many different varieties as we sat in the garden. And of course the chatty geese that welcomed us home each day!
We will definitely be back as we loved our holiday here.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are thrilled you had such a wonderful holiday. It was a pleasure to meet you and we look forward to welcoming you back.
Compact, peaceful and off the beaten track
The property was clean and well kept. In a very peaceful location and, although off the beaten track, close to a good number of places to have lunch or an evening meal. Take sufficient groceries for your stay as there are no supermarkets nearby. This wasn't a problem for us as we know the area well.
The meals at The Punch Bowl in Low Row were superb but the menu was not changed daily as their advertising brochure suggested. However there was a good variety of starters, mains and desserts and no problem with catering for our dairy free requirements.
Very attractive little bothy. Very comfortable.
I couldn't write much in the box above. The only criticisms were that the Wifi was suboptimal and is presumably placed in the adjacent property. Also not used to having to keep an eye on the electricity meters! But lovely bothy.
We had only 2 full days there but managed a couple of long walks despite changeble weather. Also went to Leyburn for half a day. The Bridge in at Grinto was good for a meal.
Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you had a lovely stay with us.
In response to your comments; unfortunately Mr. Cameron's promise of bringing super broadband to the English countryside has not reached us here and BT and TalkTalk seem unable to improve their coverage to us. We have only ever known the speed that we get and have learned to live with it but for someone who has the latest high speed service we assume that you see a difference. You are so lucky to get a good service in other parts of the country, we envy you.
We hope to welcome you back in the future.
Secret Hide-away in Swaledale
For an away from it all holiday, The Bothy proved to be ideal. Set in picturesque Swaledale, a dale with a character all its own, the location was quiet and very relaxing. The apartment was very warm and cosy with all anyone would need for their stay. There were interesting places to visit locally and in the surrounding area, the roads were good though obviously somewhat restricted in the dale, but travelling over the moor into Wensleydale afforded more open vistas and increased the number of places to visit should you wish. A warm welcome awaits the visitor to this lovely part of Britain.
Thank you for your feedback, we hope to welcome you back again in the future.
