Spectacular Swaledale

The picturesque village of Reeth is surrounded by spectacular scenery and stunning panoramas. This charming village is a popular destination for tourists seeking a taste of rural life and stunning natural scenery.

Reeth, the largest village in Swaledale, has a rich history dating back to the Viking era, and visitors can still see traces of its past in the stone buildings and cobbled streets that wind through the village. The most notable of these is the 18th-century octagonal Market Cross, which stands at the center of the village and serves as a reminder of Reeth’s past as a bustling market town.

One of the main draws of Reeth is its location in the middle of the stunning Yorkshire Dales. Visitors can explore the rolling hills and picturesque valleys on foot or by bike, with plenty of scenic routes and footpaths to choose from. The village is also a great base for exploring the wider area, with nearby attractions including the Aysgarth Falls, Swaledale Museum, and the historic town of Richmond.

For those who prefer a more leisurely pace, Reeth offers a range of charming shops, tea rooms, and pubs to explore. Visitors can browse local crafts and gifts at the village’s many independent shops or sample some traditional Yorkshire fare at one of the village’s pubs or cafes where visitors can try local specialties such as Wensleydale cheese, pork pies, and Yorkshire curd tart.

Reeth holds a weekly market, held every Friday in the village square. Here, visitors can browse a range of stalls selling everything from fresh produce and local crafts to antiques and vintage goods.
