Hotels in Reeth
At the centre of the Northern Dales lies the compact 18th-century town of Reeth. A beautiful, scenic hilly region of industrial history, fine arts and rare wildlife. The Yorkshire Dales' most recognised author, Ella Pontefract, described Reeth as ‘a country in itself.' The town is also known as ‘the heart of the two Dales' where upper Swaledale and Arkengarthdale meet, and lies cosily amongst a landscape of secluded villages and moorland streams.
This characteristic Saxon settlement had a huge voice in the domestic economy and is best known for producing over ten percent of the country's lead, back in its industrial era.
The town has challenging but beautiful steep walks and an abundance of wildlife to be rewarded with during your hikes. And just ten miles from Reeth is Swaledale Outdoor Club, a place that encourages you to enjoy the Dales and surrounding villages via a stream of outdoor pursuits, such as canoeing, cycling, mountain biking and kayaking to name but a few.
Arts and culture
Visit the Swaledale Museum in Reeth which celebrates the lives of Dales' occupants from the Iron Age to the rise and fall of the mining industry, between the 1650s and the 1950s. Set amongst a backdrop of breath-taking scenery, it was a Methodist Day School in the 1800s. With beautiful walks, fine dining and crafts to learn, you could enjoy a stay at the Museum Cottage.
In August, there's live entertainment in the form of the Reeth brass band, which has provided the soundtrack for the Reeth Agricultural Show for over a hundred years. The show also has activities for both adults and children, such as crafts stalls, sheep shows and rides.
Reeth has festivities all year around. From April to May it's lambing season, and between May and June it's the Swaledale Festival, at which you can partake in open-mic poetry, live music and archaeological activities.
Make a detour to the North Yorkshire Dales National Park. Tucked away in neighbouring Arkengarthdale, it's home to incredible greenery, wildlife, cycling fun and a whole world of heritage knowledge.
Food and drink
Eat anywhere in this lovely town and you'll be filled with awe at the views. But at the Burgoyne Hotel at the top of the village green, the food matches the scenery – simply incomparable.
