|Arklehurst is a traditional stone built 18th century cottage offering exceptionally warm and cosy accommodation for up to four people. Set in the tiny jewel of a village of Langthwaite, in Arkengarthdale, the cottage is furnished and equipped to the highest possible standard, with a welcoming coal stove for cool evenings. The newly refurbished dining kitchen, with quality pine dining table and chairs, has an old-fashioned original range as focal point, a wonderful reminder of the true history of the cottage. A lovely new shower room provides an extra touch of luxury and many guests comment that our description and photos don't do this wonderful cottage justice. Come and see for yourself!

Nestling in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Langthwaite is an ideal centre for walking, mountain biking, touring the Northern Dales or simply relaxing. It is the picture postcard village of the Dales and has been the setting for many television programmes and films including All Creatures Great and Small and A Woman of Substance. A car is essential for stays in Arkengarthdale, as there is no bus service within the dale (Swaledale buses stop in nearby Reeth). The Red Lion in the village and the nearby CB Inn serve great food and drink in characterful settings. Reeth is a few miles away, where you can find a wide variety of pubs, cafes, shops (including Swaledale Outdoors for all hiking equipment), a post office, a garage and a small market on Fridays. Bike hire at Fremington, 4 miles, Hazel Brow Organic Farm at Low Row, 5 miles. Recycling facilities are available at Langthwaite and Reeth. No mobile reception in Langthwaite, Orange and possibly some others at Reeth. Public internet access at Hudson House, Reeth. Hazel Brow Organic Farm (Low Row) can provide a welcome hamper for your arrival and Ghyllfoot Tearoom (Gunnerside ) frozen "bistro-style" meals - see FAQs.
