Swaledale, Yorkshire Dales National Park, North Yorkshire, England
HIllcrest Cottage has a wonderful position in the village of Low Row in Swaledale. Its elevated site provides visitors with unrivalled, panoramic views of Swaledale. The cottage sits quietly on the edge of the village, surrounded by common land, yet is just a short stroll from The Punchbowl Inn which is renowned for its good food, fine wines, well-stocked bar and pleasant ambience.

Hillcrest sleeps five in three bedrooms; one kingsize, one double and one single. The double bedroom and the shower room is on the ground floor making it suitable for guests with mobility problems but unfortunately is not suitable for wheelchair access. The main sitting room, on the first floor and with its two windows looking over the dale, is everyone's favourite room. The views from here are captivating and simply make you want to stop and stare.

About the neighbourhood
A holiday in Swaledale doesn’t have to be limited to walking alone. There is so much to do and see in the immediate area. The Forbidden Corner in Middleham is a must for families, The Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle is a 30 minute drive away, The World of James Herriot in Thirsk will be definitely on the list of all James Herriot fans however the famous watersplash as featured in the opening credits of the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small is a mere 10 minute drive from Hillcrest! Closer to home, the village of Reeth Makes a lovely visit. Here you will find independent shops & galleries selling goods only made in the dales. Pop into the Swaledale Museum or enjoy an ice-cream on the green. Stay at Hillcrest and see for yourself.
Getting around
A car is essential when staying at Hillcrest as you will want to tour about the dales during your stay however we have a great community bus service in Upper Swaledale called the Little White Bus. Catch the Little White Bus up to Muker or Keld and enjoy one of the many walks from these attractive dales villages or pop on the bus to Reeth and walk back to the cottage following the Swale Trail trail. Look up the Little White Bus timetable on Google.
