Wraycroft Cottages is a Dales family business in the Yorkshire village of Reeth established in 1965. Living on a beautiful two acre site in 1980 we decided to build three traditional stone terraced properties adjacent to our own home. They are known as Ashcroft, Beechcroft and Cedarcroft and are just a 5 minute stroll from Reeth village centre.
These unique cottages are the perfect peaceful retreat with gardens, ponds and access to the River Swale brimming with wildlife. Accommodation is rated 4* by Visit England, and each year is awarded 100% for cleanliness. Visitors who return year after year say they have never been anywhere so peaceful.

The village of Reeth is often thought of as the 'capital' of Swaledale, and is a quaint, traditional English village at the junction of the River Swale and the Arkle Beck.
The area is particularly popular with outdoor enthusiasts and offers designated walking routes, mountain biking and watersports activities. Reeth village contains a number of grocery shops, a Post Office and other independent shops ideal for picking up essentials.
The village green hosts a small market every Friday and there is also a museum, ice cream parlour and several cafes close by.
Travelling from Richmond (B6270), on entering Reeth, the road branches just before it goes up the hill. The branch road is a Y junction and opposite the bottom shop. It is called the Back Lane and is steep.
We are on the left hand side at the top of the hill. An easier approach is to remain on the main road which goes through the village on its way to Gunnerside.
Just after the fire station which is still in the village, turn left down Langhorne Drive. This road ends in a T Junction. Turn left down Back Lane and Wraycroft Cottages, well marked, are a few hundred metres on your right.
