Reeth, surrounded by stunning scenery, is an ideal centre for walking, cycling and touring by car, as well as being part of the 2014 Tour de France and the first ever 2015 Tour de Yorkshire routes.

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.

Moordale is a property that we have stayed at countless times throughout the last few years, and it is excellent. Comfort and cleanliness would be hard to beat and its location is ideal for all amenities in Reeth. You can park up your car as numerous walks

start from the village. A wonderful base which we would definitely recommend to anyone.

A great little house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Moordale Cottage twice it is very well equipped and clean in a very quiet location just a few minutes from the centre of the village. I stayed during the winter and the house was very warm and especially cosy when the fire was lit. The location is great with shops, pubs and cafes a few minutes walk away and wonderful country walks from the doorstep. I used the cottage as a quiet place to work in the week but it was also ideal for my family at the weekend with plenty of space for 4 people. Peter and Lorna could not have been more helpful and I felt very welcome. I am sure I will be back again!

This was a perfect retreat for us and we spent Christmas at the cottage. Lorna was really helpful and ensured we had everything we needed.The cottage is welcoming, warm and comfortable and we felt very much at home.

It is very well located - an easy walk to the village stores and pubs and there are lots of lovely walks from the doorstep. We would love to come back!
