About Wraycroft Cottages

Wraycroft Cottages are three beautiful holiday homes in the charming Yorkshire Dales village of Reeth, within walking distance of the village shop, cafe, and the welcoming Black Bull pub. The cottages are on two private acres of land bordered by the River Swale. The gardens feature terraces, ponds, and areas cultivated to attract birds, butterflies, deer, rabbits, and other wildlife. Each cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms and is perfect for couples, friends, or families with older (over ten years) children. It's a wonderfully idyllic spot where you can relax and enjoy being surrounded by beautiful scenery.

The owners have lived in Reeth for generations and have been letting holiday cottages since 1965. Living on the site they are around if needed and have very many regular visitors. Wander around the village green before stopping at the Swaledale Museum to work up an appetite for a pot of tea and a generous slice of homemade cake at one of Reeth's tea rooms. If you're there on Friday, there is a small farmers market on the green and a fish-and-chip van that visits in the evening. More amenities are a short drive away in the historic market town of Richmond, where the pretty town grew up around the Norman castle and a twice-weekly outdoor market in the Georgian market square.

Reeth is part of Swaledale, a place famous for its breathtaking scenery and abundance of footpaths and cycling routes. Don't be surprised to see old mines like Cogden Beck in Grinton, where lead was mined in the 1700s and 1800s. Barnard Castle and Leyburn are around 11 miles from Wraycroft Cottages, and bike hire is available locally if you want to explore further without using your car.

All three of the Wraycroft Cottages are virtually identical, comfortably furnished with open fires and have stunning views. The owners are very proud to always achieve a 4 star rating and 100% for cleanliness when annually assessed by Visit England. Holiday bookings are available all year round.

Accommodation Comprises:

Wraycroft Cottages is a row of three terraced holiday homes, each private and self-contained with accommodation over two levels.


  • Sitting room with comfortable seating and an open fire where you can put your feet up and relax after a day's exploration. Put the TV on (it has Freesat channels and a DVD player), or allow yourself the pleasure of being distracted by the views from the patio doors that open onto the south-facing patio.
  • Having run holiday cottages since 1965, the owners know just what guests need in the kitchen of a self-catering cottage. They have thought of everything so that you don't have to. Cupboards are stocked with crockery, glasses, pots, pans and the other things you need to cook and serve meals.


  • Master bedroom with a king-sized bed, proper storage, and stunning views of the hills.
  • Twin bedroom with two full-sized single beds and views towards Fremington Edge.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: Each cottage has allocated parking and a private patio with stunning views. The wider grounds, which lead down to the River Swale, have seating areas under the trees and beside the ponds.

Additional Information: Utilities, fibre-optic WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are included. The owner regrets they cannot accommodate pets or children under ten years old. Smoking is not permitted. Various discounts are offered. The full price is reduced by £60 per week if there are only one or two visitors in the party, stays of two consecutive weeks attract a £30 discount and a loyalty discount of 5% is available for returning guests. This is quite considerable if you qualify for them all! Short breaks are possible depending on availability.
