"Reeth" Top 5 Page for this destination North Yorkshire Things to Do Tip by Sjalen

North Yorkshire Things to Do: 132 reviews and 294 photos


Swaledale's biggest village and hub for Coast to Coast walkers and other tourists is a nice place to spend a day, supping a pint or two in a village green pub and admiring the surrounding fells. There are also great short walks for those who don't want to walk a whole trail, and for children there is one of the most scenic playgrounds in the Dales as well as a short hop to Hazel Farm in Low Row. Being a hub, Reeth also has lots of handicraft shops and galleries and the Swaledale Museum, giving you great insight into lead mining, sheep farming and other major livelihoods in this area throughout history.

Address: Swaledale
Directions: Signposted from the Richmond to Leyburn road and can also be reached from Hawes in Wensleydale.
