Hubby don't want to go abroad anymore , he didn't want to come home! Anyone who visits will not be disappointed . We will be back !
The location of this property is excellent surrounded by stunning scenery. Everything that we needed was a stones throw away. The welcome basket was lovely and the cottage felt like a home from home. All the rooms were decorated well and the open fire was bliss especially with a glass of prosecco as a reward after a long walk. Wonderful. Would definitely stay there again!
What a beautiful little cottage. We stayed there for 2 nights and were not disappointed in the slightest!
The central village location is superb, the views are stunning & the cottage was lovely & clean & the rooms very comfortable.
The welcome pack when we arrived was one of the best welcome packs we've ever had.
The cottage is also Dog Friendly which is a bonus.
We can't wait to return in the spring.
I noticed negative feedback from a previous traveller, don't let this put you off as I believe the feedback was very unfair.
The property was not particularly clean or well maintained.Our daughter awoke after one night with flee bites.We decided to leave and managed to book a lovely place not too far away.
Half moon cottage was the perfect place for our 4 night stay in Reeth. Ideally located next to the Black bull pub, overlooking the village green and views over the Dale. Jo and Neale were extremely accommodating of our black lab and made us feel very welcome, topped off by a lovely welcome basket. The cottage provided us with a fantastic base for the holiday and had all the facilities required for an enjoyable break to the dales.
We would definitely recommend half moon cottage and will be returning ourselves.
Lovely welcome, big on the special touches made us very welcome
Great for walks and quiet time
We very much enjoyed our week at Half Moon Cottage. Clean, well equipped with a lovely welcome from Jo and Neale. All in all very much as described on the tin! Perfect location in the lovely village of Reeth and always something going on across the green to watch from the lounge window. The dog spent many a happy hour sitting there watching the world (and all the other dogs) going by.
Good walks nearby and an excellent centre for touring the area. Plenty of places to eat and drink in walking distance and the ice cream parlour is definitely worth a visit.
Would be happy to recommend a stay at Half Moon and we are already thinking about when our next visit might be.

If exploring is your thing, then you've come to the right place. Reeth has a variety of beautiful yet challenging hill walks and an abundance of wildlife on offer, guaranteed to satisfy even the most seasoned of sightseers. There's large numbers of curlew, lapwing, oystercatcher, wild hare...and if you're lucky even the rare black grouse. Visit in April or May and you'll catch the new-born baby lambs too.
Reeth was also the birthplace of popular fiction novelist Ruby Ferguson, whose stories were enjoyed so much by The Queen Mother that she was invited to Buckingham Palace for dinner. Ferguson's atmospheric inspiration arguably came from Reeth's mysterious yet picturesque landscape of wild flower meadows and stunning heather, which is concealed between the hills.
If you prefer a slightly less strenuous form of travel, Reeth's moors provide the perfect terrain for pony trekking, a firm favourite method of transport among visitors. Alternatively adrenaline junkies can take it up a gear on our range of fast paced mountain biking trails, bike hire and courses are available from the nearbyDales Bike Centre.
