About the property

Flat 1, The Literary Institute is a spacious, two bedroom holiday home.

Flat 1, The Literary Institute is a delightful, two bedroom, first floor apartment occupied over two floors, full of character and sits in the heart of the popular village of Reeth in Swaledale. The flat has been well appointed, and with the addition of modern conveniences makes it a very comfortable holiday home especially as it is a stone’s throw from the pubs, restaurant, cafes and other village amenities.

The flat is on the first floor and boasts fabulous views from the main living area through large sash windows over the village green and beyond to Fremington Edge. You’ll be surprised how spacious, light and airy this holiday home is – yet is extremely cosy and homely.

Access to the flat is via a communal staircase shared with only one other flat. As you enter there is a good size hallway with plenty of space for shoes, boots and coats. There are two doors leading to the large, open plan living, dining and kitchen. Although all in one area the L shape makes the room very spacious and helps to separate the living and dining area. Parking is on a first come first served basis, there is usually a parking space available in front of the flat and also parking on the village green.

The double bedroom is at the rear of the first floor of the flat with a couple of steps leading to it. The single bedroom is on the ground floor next to the family bathroom with shower over. Opposite the bathroom is an additional exit to the shared court yard and secure bike storage racks. There is also access from the street to the rear of the flat and the bike storage so there is no need to bring the bikes through the flat.

This holiday accommodation is ideal for those looking to explore Swaledale by foot or by bike. There are numerous walks straight from the door suchas the more challenging hikes up Fremington Edge, Calver Hill and Harkerside or the easier strolls down by the River Swale. Reeth and surrounding areas have now grown in popularity for both mountain biking and road cycling. Again, there are so many routes to choose you will certainly fill your days up easily!

If you wish to explore further afield then simply pop in your car and enjoy the scenic drives up and down dale to the many picturesque villages. Explore the famous spots such as the water splash featured on All Creatures Great and Small, the infamous Buttertubs – which became well known from the Stage 1 of the Tour de France in 2014. Or, why not take a short drive up to the highest pub in England – Tan Hill – the views are incredible and the beer isn’t bad either!

There are also several market towns in the area, such as Leyburn and Hawes both within 30 minutes’ drive from Reeth. Then 30 minutes in the opposite direction is the Georgian town of Richmond, with several attractions worth visiting such as the impressive castle, the waterfalls, the museum, Georgian theatre and The Station full of artisan products, ice cream parlour, cafe and a cinema.

About Hannah

I currently live in Warrington and have retired from the adult learning. My husband and I bought the flat hoping to retire to the area at some point. Sadly, he died in 2014 and I am making a new retirement plan.

Hannah purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Hannah chose Reeth

Reeth is a special place for me and my family. My husband and I enjoyed a lovely summer here together when we first bought it and it holds lovely memories of walks and times shared with our family. Letting the flat is a way of making this lovely holiday home available to others to enjoy.

What makes this apartment unique

The living room is on the first floor with great views. It is spacious and light and airy and a great spot to people watch. The word 'flat' does not do it justice as it has its own unique character, in keeping with its history. It is on two levels with ground floor access at the back. And it is ideally suited for walks, local pubs, ice cream and tea shops.

Superb stay in a central location in the lovely village of Reeth

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of room for the two of us to stretch out for most of three days. All the necessary implements were provided to feel at home as well as a bit of tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits to welcome the tummy. Perfect!
