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. The dining / sitting room is traditionally furnished with oak table & chairs and antique dresser. With views over the garden & hills beyond, this is a lovely room to read the papers at the start of the day. Both the sitting room and the downstairs dining / sitting room have log burning stoves which is backed up by full central heating.

Guest comfort is a priority at Hillcrest Cottage. All our beds are new and of the highest quality with cosy duvets and luxury bedding to gensure a good night's sleep, essential after a day walking or cycling in the dale or touring the countryside.

The village of Low Row is in the very heart of Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales. Swaledale; beautiful, rugged, unspoilt is the perfect place for a 'get-away-from-it-all' holiday. Loved by walkers and cyclist (The Tour de France Grand Depart passes through Low Row in July 2014) there a multitude of bridleways and footpaths to explore including the Coast to Coast path. Reeth, often described as the gateway to the dales, is 5 minutes away and here you will find a good selection of pubs, cafes, gift shops, Post Office, The Dales Museum and Hudson House Information Centre. Travel west to the very top of Swaledale to the tiny hamlet of Keld or venture south over the Buttertubs pass into Wensleydale to visit Hawes where real Wensleydale cheese is made.


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 'watersplash' featured in the opening credits of the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small is a mere 10 minute drive from Hillcrest! The list is never ending - come to Hillcrest and see for yourself.
