One of three self catering holiday cottages in two acre gardens with private river bank and outstanding views. Open fires, WiFi, private parking and RESIDENT OWNERS TO WELCOME YOU. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PETS, SMOKERS OR CHILDREN YOUNGER THAN TEN We offer the best of both worlds, clean, comfy, warm, well maintained , very well equipped cottages close to amenities but in an area of peace and tranquility. We established our family business in1965 . The fact that we have such a high percentage of returning visitors is our highest recommendation. Sadly many are not able to come any longer, hence the vacancies. We are assessed annually by Quality in Tourism and achieve 4 star rating with 100% for cleanliness. So many holiday cottages how do you decide? Choose us and you will not be disappointed. The price is very good value as all work (including the gardening, website, booking, cleaning, maintenance) is carried out by the family. Living on site everything has to be in good order ! Ashcroft is one of three linked cottages, each with their own patio plus access to the huge garden. The cottages are nearly identical and each have the following DOWNSTAIRS:- entrance porch, kitchen and South facing lounge with doors opening onto a private patio popular for coffee drinking, reading, soaking up the sun and snoozing. UPSTAIRS:- one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and bathroom with electric shower over the bath LOUNGES:- have comfortable seating, superb views and open fires which heat radiators and hot water. There are colour freesat televisions, DVD players, radios and books. KITCHENS:. very well equipped and very clean. Super tariff electricity heats storage heaters and water cylinders overnight with a two hour afternoon boost. Visitors say how warm the cottages are and although not needed fires can be lit for arrival. As only Orange and T-Mobile phones have reception, Orange phones are available for visitors to borrow. The rental is all inclusive except for towels which may be hired (£3 per person). and excess coal which may be purchased from us at cost. We call the properties our tardis cottages. Do not think they are small by looking at outside photographs, once inside people are amazed at the space. Prices are for 1 or 2. people The garden is unique and needs to be seen to be appreciated. Two acres of wildlife gardens with ponds, mini forest, river, shrubs, grass, birds, pond life, butterflies, mammals, terraces and stunning views. The garden has two terraces, faces South and slopes down to the River Swale. The ponds are full of life and there is a net provided for dipping. If lucky enough you may see the dragonfly larva on the iris stems and even luckier to watch one hatch out . After their wings are dry they fly away, and can be seen swooping over the water. The first terrace is level with the cottages and has sheltered seats overlooking the ponds with the river in the background. Other seats are provided each taking advantage of the amazing views of the gardens, the river and the hills beyond. The river bank has stone steps leading down to the water level where again there is seating. Whenever the river floods we are left with lots of drift wood and sand. We always keep the access to the riverside clear. Hours can be spent watching wildlife, catching the sun or messing about in the river. One visitor saw 30 different species of birds during their week's stay. Each cottage has a book to help bird recognition. We have lots of pheasants, the odd rabbit and occasionally a deer. Everything is done to provide peace and tranquility where visitors can relax and enjoy 'time out'. Although for the energetic there is a basket ball hoop and a portable full sized badminton net. The river is deep enough for swimming and shallow enough for paddling. We do not accept pets, children under the age of ten or smoking. We do like visitors to feel comfortable with booking and encourage you to send us a message if you need further details. A quiet site suitable for folks who enjoy looking at wonderful views, sitting by the river and letting the world go by. More

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.
