Apartment in Fremington, Swaledale, Yorkshire Dales, England - Situated in the picturesque hamlet of Fremington, walks from the door, 10 minutes from local pubs
2 Draycott Hall is an attractive, two bedroomed, ground floor holiday apartment set in the picturesque hamlet of Fremington in Swaledale between the popular villages of Reeth and Grinton in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales . This welcoming holiday apartment overlooks the craggy hillside of Harkerside and is perfectly situated to explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The apartment has recently been tastefully refurbished to a high standard whilst retaining much of the Yorkshire Dales charm.
We have gone to great lengths to ensure our holiday apartment has all the home comforts so that guests have a relaxing ‘home from home’ holiday experience in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The apartment boasts a very spacious layout with high ceilings and much of the original features have been restored. The living room is very spacious with large sash windows giving views to Harkerside over the top of the Draycott Hall garden walls. The property benefits from being on ground floor level with only two steps within the Bathroom.
The living room is decorated in neutral colours, with a large multi-fuel stove (for logs and solid fuel) which adds to the warm and welcoming charm of this individual apartment. The living area seats four people very comfortably in front of the large sash windows and is a perfect place to relax after a day of adventure and exploration in the Yorkshire Dales. The Multi-fuel stove also adds additional heating should it be required to the modern, state of the art, electronic radiators throughout the holiday home.
There is an interconnecting door leading from the living room into the spacious kitchen again with full length sash windows which creates a light and airy room, there is a second door leading into the hallway. Tucked away in the kitchen is all the equipment you should require to whip up some culinary delights, and ample workspace to do so. However, if it is a night off from cooking you are after, then the local pub, The Bridge Inn, is approximately a few minutes’ walk away and offers great food and some fantastic local ales.
The master double bedroom with king size bed and twin bedroom are found at the end of the apartment hallway. The master bedroom is light and airy, neutrally decorated and boasts large sash windows with shutters with views to Harkerside. Next door is the twin bedroom which can be turned into a second double bedroom should it be required with a super king size bed. The modern, family bathroom is located down the hallway opposite the living room.
This spacious and comfortable Yorkshire Dales holiday apartment provides excellent accommodation and base for a family or a groups of friends wishing to explore the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding area. The location is ideal for walkers and cyclists as there are many walks and bridle paths located nearby. The apartment also offers secure bike storage.
2 Draycott Hall is one of our dog friendly holiday homes, one to two well behaved dog welcome. There are a number of dog friendly pubs in the area and plenty of dog friendly walks close by which make this dales holiday apartment an ideal choice if you are looking for pet friendly accommodation.

About Chris & Liz
We came here on retirement from our own business. We knew the area well because we had been coming here for years. We used to come to Liz’s uncle’s holiday cottage in High Fremington and her brother’s cottage in Low Row. Liz’s father was born in the Black Bull, Reeth which his parents owned and ran as did several previous generations on his mother’s side. The photographs in the hall of our apartment show her grandmother, great grandfather and great-great grandfather together outside the Black Bull. Our eldest son, Andrew, is the landlord of the Bridge Inn, Grinton and has been for over ten years now. He came to stay with us and ended up taking over our local! We help out occasionally, Liz typically with the puddings and cooking breakfast, me on the bar and as the odd job man!
Why Chris & Liz chose Richmondshire District
We bought this apartment a few years ago for our youngest son, Ian and his wife, Lisa, to live in. He was a chef at the Bridge Inn at the time. They moved out the end of 2013 to start up a new restaurant in Billingham, The Peppermill Bistro, with his father-in-law. We liked this apartment from the start. It has a period country house feel. It is relatively spacious and yet has a warm ambience. The big windows make it light and airy and it gets more sunshine than so many other properties and tractive outlook yet is sheltered from the prevailing wind. We decided to turn it into a holiday home and feel we might one day live in it if our present home and garden become too much for us.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love the relative quietness and variation of attractive scenery of this part of the Yorkshire Dales. We also love the labyrinth of footpaths which offer a greater variety of walks than many other areas and allow walks to be shortened or lengthened depending on mood or weather.

Very Spacious Apartment in a Fabulous Location
Very comfortable, spacious Apartment with a garden. We took our bikes and appreciated having a Shed to keep them in. The location is perfect, just a few minutes walk into Reeth, a beautiful Village. Super area for walking and cycling.
Good spacious apartment
Good position to all local amenities. Great owners & nothing too much trouble. Loved this character property !
Fantastic accomodation and great location
Just back from a week at Draycott Hall with my Wife, eldest Daughter and dog. We had a great time, the apartment was spacious, well equipped and ideally situated between Grinton and Reeth meaning a short walk to a number of pubs. Our favourite was the Bridge at Grinton a really friendly country pub. Good walking routes can be accessed directly from the apartment we didn't move the car for three days. Thank you for the welcoming gift of bread, homemade marmalade and tea cake.
Very pleasant stay
We greatly enjoyed our stay, well appointed accommodation in good location.
A fantastic holiday
This was a lovely comfortable apartment in a beautiful setting. It was warm and welcoming after days out in the very cold weather. Facilities were good.
Wonderful location, wonderful home
We used this as a base to explore the Yorkshire Dales and it was perfect. There were walks right out the front door, or a short drive away. Grinton and Reeth are adorable villages, and the Bridge Inn in Grinton is an incredible pub.
The apartment itself was more spacious than the photos show, and beautifully appointed and kept up. Very clean and had everything we needed, including cooking utensils. The hosts left delicious homemade bread and jam for us as well. I would definitely stay here again!
