Frog House is a traditional stone Dales’ cottage built around 1775. It has stunning views over Swaledale plus great walks, cycle routes and nature all around. It was recently renovated to a high standard by local crafts people using the best natural materials, so it meets the expectations of contemporary living. The cottage sleeps up to four people in two bedrooms (one double, and one zip, so either a king size double or two singles depending on your party) and has two bathrooms. It has a very well-equipped kitchen with granite work surfaces and a bespoke breakfast area, plus a comfortable sitting and dining room with a log burner for cosy evenings. The house also has under-flooring heating throughout for all-day comfort if needed. Outside, the patio area is ideal for a morning coffee or evening glass of wine while you enjoy the landscape. Inside, the décor puts a modern twist on a country style with an interesting display of pictures and ceramics. One/two well behaved dogs are happily accommodated and there is secure bike storage at the back of the house. Swaledale is a great place for enjoying long days outdoors, or for simply taking time out from the stresses of daily life. Frog House is an extremely comfortable home from home with everything you need to make the most of your holiday.
As Frog House was recently renovated it is now extremely well insulated and has well-positioned roof-lights, so uses energy for heating and lighting very efficiently. The underfloor heating is powered by oil, however double glazing, thick curtains and quilts, plus the log burner mean that its use is kept to a minimum. Most household products are environmentally friendly from brands such as Ecover and Who Gives a Crap and there is a system for recycling household waste. The downstairs loo has been twinned with a latrine in Pakistan via the charity Toilet Twinning https://www.toilettwinning.org/

Fantastically appointed cottage- a real home from home. Beautiful location with so many walks from the door. There is no need to move the car. The Bridge Inn is good for food as is The Buck in Reeth. We have been lucky with the weather. Thank you for having us Katrina.
Lovely cottage with walks in all directions. Good weather all week. Only needed the car once all week for Yorkshire show.
Loved everything about it. Very cosy on a cold, wet and windy visit.
A lovely house well decorated and maintained. Everything you would want. The views were marvellous. The dogs loved the walks. Will come again.
What a delightful place. We have been so comfortable, the cottage is extraordinary with all the modern conveniences but still charming. The surrounding countryside has so much to offer, lovely walks, excellent tea rooms, wonderful meals plus much more. We will return.
Really enjoyed our stay at your lovely cottage. Great walks straight from the door. Great views across the valley whilst sitting eating breakfast. Really comfortable and relaxing
The cottage was wonderful and provided us with the perfect place to stay; complete with everything we needed. Many thanks for helping to make our trip to Swaledale so special!
Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay in your lovely cottage in an amazing area. We have stayed in Yorkshire many times but not in this location. Your cottage is finished and furnished to a very high level which we found refreshing.
Thank you for all the care you have taken to make this such a comfortable and welcoming place to stay. It was a perfect place to spend New Year (Woody the dog appreciated the lack of fireworks!) With great walking from the doorstep and a great bench outside to admire the view. Love the pottery, quilts and frogs!
Swaledale is the most northerly dale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It was cut by the ancient River Swale which now makes its way through a series of picturesque villages before arriving at the bustling, market town of Richmond. Higher up heather moorlands stretch away, the only sound the bleat of sheep and the cry of curlew birds.
Frog House is in the hamlet of High Fremington, between the villages of Reeth and Grinton. It is situated on the Coast to Coast path so is surrounded by superb walking. For a challenging leg stretch head up Fremington Edge or Calvert Hill to enjoy superb views or for a more gentle wander, take the Swale river path. Cyclists are also spoilt for choice, from the family friendly Swale Trail to the demanding road itinerary used by the Tour de France or the off-road routes used by the Ard Rock festival. To find out more, and to hire bikes, visit the Dales Bike Centre just down the hill from Frog House.
Visitors who enjoy music and the arts should check out the Swaledale Festival programme well in advance. Held in May it brings together an eclectic ranges of cultural events. For those who enjoy being part of the farming community time your visit to coincide with the Reeth or Muker Agricultural shows. If you enjoy history then a visit to the Swaledale museum in Reeth is a must.
Food choices are also varied. To pick up provisions for eating in then the Friday market in Reeth has a good selection of fresh produce. If you are eating out then The Dales Bike Centre also has a great café, serving delicious lunches and cakes. Another contender for the best scone in Swaledale goes to Overton House in Reeth which has a lovely selection of savoury and sweet treats. Alternatively try out the Reeth Ice Cream Parlour for delicious homemade ice-cream. If you want a cosy pub then The Bridge in Grinton is hard to beat. For a special occasion dinner or Sunday lunch then head to the CB in Arkengarthdale. Or if you want to keep it simple, then join the queue for Ramsey’s Fish and Chip van, it arrives in Fremington about 3.50pm on Fridays!
There's always something happening in the area, with festivals and fairs held throughout the year. For more information on the surrounding area and local events see our Yorkshire Dales Guide and the Festivals & Events Guide.
