“Wonderful house in beautiful setting.”

The views from the back door were over the Swale and up the moors. The local walks were those of dreams.

Spotless accommodation for two couples. The views are amazing. The surrounds have to be seen to be appreciated. Reeth itself is unspoilt. The surrounding countryside is beautiful. The people are friendly and the place seems to be a magnet for walkers.

“A slice of life in the Dales”
Reviewed 20 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our one week stay at Waycroft Cottages was one of the highlights of a two month tour around the British Isles. From my first email enquiries I could sense that Ray was an enthusiastic and attentive host. This impression was confirmed when we were warmly greeted by her on our arrival. Ray is an engaging host with a wealth of local knowledge and offers great insight into life in the Dales.

The cottages were established by Ray and her husband on a generous site overlooking the glorious rural scenery of the northern Yorkshire Dales. Our two storey unit had an exceptionally well set up kitchen and a comfortable lounge / dining area. The upstairs bedrooms were very comfortable and silent at night time. We even had the option of blankets providing a welcome alternative to all those uncomfortably hot doonas that most British accommodation provides.

The cottages are set in a large and beautiful garden that extends down to the banks of the fast flowing Swale River. Ray continues to keep the garden in immaculate condition and its a joy to wander through it enjoying the many birds that frequent it.

The cottages are located on the edge of the appealing village of Reeth with a delightful winding snicket providind an easy little walk into the village's cluster of pubs and shops. The surrounding Swale Dale is a beautiful and a relatively quiet slice of the Yorkshire Dales with quaint stone villages and crystal clear streams set within a patchwork of stone walled green fields and a backdrop of lofty fells tinged purple with flowering heather. The area provides countless opportunities for walking through the countryside.

The nearby market town of Richmond is one of the most appealing towns we saw throughout our travels. It also has some some excellent dining options including the authentic Rustique French restaurant. Waycroft provided us a good base to visit other Yorkshire attractions such as the Yorkshire Moors steam railway and the city of York.

It surprised me that most of Ray's guests are apparently from Britain - her accommodation at Waycroft has much to offer overseas travellers and I would highly recommend it.

“My favourite place in Swaledale”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 for a stay in August 2013

I've been coming to Wraycroft Cottages with my parents since I was a teenager. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped with all mod cons. There's plenty of parking and if you don't want to use your car on holiday you can walk to the shops and pubs and walk and bike from the front door. The views from the cottage are the best in the Dale. I love it here and can't wait to return in the summer.
