Moordale Cottage is located just at the base of the breathtaking Fremington Edge fells. We're well-appointed for self-catering here, but you can also enjoy one of the top-notch locally-run village pubs, serving excellent meals and real ales – perfect for relaxing after a day's adventuring in the idyllic countryside!

We provide you with the little luxuries that make your stay special – beautifully soft towels and egyptian cotton bedding, plus a dreamy open fireplace in the lounge.

Enjoy a few days in Reeth, and you'll discover a fascinating, friendly village, with plenty to do and see. There are even more places to visit just a few minutes' drive away, in the rest of the Yorkshire Dales. Travelling on quiet, enjoyable roads, it'll be fun for both driver and passenger alike!

Durham, York, The Lake District and Teesdale are all easily-reachable possibilities for day trips in the car.

We've tried to include here all the information you need to plan your perfect holiday in Swaledale, but if you have any questions, we'd love to hear from you!
