Why Naomi Meredith chose North Yorkshire

Apple Tree Cottage has several special qualities. Surrounded by varied and dramatic scenery in a beautiful, side valley off Swaledale, it is away from traffic and you can enjoy utter peace and quiet. Yet it isn't isolated, as it's part of a cluster of five cottages, only four miles from the ancient town of Richmond, and a similar distance from the Swaledale tourist centre of Reeth. Right on the doorstep there is splendid scenery, many varied walks, wildlife, cycling.. The cottage forms part of a quirky cluster of old stone buildings with an interesting history. Inside, it is warm and cosy and has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is a home from home with all the facilities needed for an easy, relaxing trip away. As we often stay at the cottage ourselves, you should find everything you need. You will find tea and coffee, milk, oil, condiments, herbs and spices, and there will be an initial supply of logs etc should you wish to light the stove.

The dining area is surrounded on three sides with large windows, which open to let in the fresh air, and there is a lovely spot outside to enjoy a glass of wine on summer evenings.

We have tried to make the cottage functional as well as beautiful and the large open air porch and store provides you with space to 'de-robe' and store the things you don't want to take inside.

The cottage is in a very peaceful and quiet place in Swaledale on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There is excellent hill-walking, cycling and bird-watching. There are lovely walks from the doorstep: the immediate surroundings are a mix of woods, meadows, valleys, rivers and streams, open moorland, and limestone scenery with cliffs.

Lovely quiet cottage

  • 5 of 5

Appletree Cottage is a lovely place to stay for a week to enjoy the quiet Dales. We were 4 adults and the cottage suited us perfectly. Everything was as described and all the facilities are modern and comfortable.

Very good location, very well fitted out.

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent cottage, in a lovely quiet spot. It was well furnished, very well equipped and extremely comfortable. I would strongly recommend it, and the helpful and generous owner.

I think I'll be coming back next year.

Appletree Cottage

  • 4 of 5

A lovely cottage in a truly peaceful and unspoilt location as the description stated. Great for walks in the Yorkshire Dales with several from the cottage - and there is lots of information about them in the house. Well equipped and nicely furnished - just a few minor things weren't as top notch as we had hoped but we have told the owner about these directly. Well worth going to!

Nice, well - equipped cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 5 days and had a good time. The cottage has everything that you need and more besides, although the wifi only worked for some of the time. We explored the area on bikes and had some excellent trips.

A lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at Easter. There were 4 of us - my teenage daughter & stepdaughter didn't realise there were only 2 double beds but I found a fold-up bed in the cupboard downstairs, so they were happy! They had the master bedroom, which had more room.

The cottage is very warm and cosy, and we lit the fire in the evenings.

The beds were very comfy, and the kitchen well-equipped.

Highly recommended!!!
