Stay at Laykin Cottage

Laykin is a luxury cottage set high on the hillside above the village of Low Row, and is approached by a private road. It has been likened to an eagle’s nest, as the fields slope steeply down from the sunny south-facing patio, giving uninterrupted and breathtaking views of the beautiful Swaledale scenery. You can enjoy the feeling of remoteness and peace, but are within half a mile’s walk of the award winning local gastro pub The Punchbowl Inn. Laykin is perfect for families, including children, and groups of friends. Walkers, birdwatchers, stargazers (Enjoy the dark night sky), botanists, cyclists and those needing a total break in a quiet location.  It’s the perfect escape.


Laykin sleeps 7 in its 4 bedrooms, and there are 3 bathrooms. It has a large kitchen diner, a sitting room with a woodburning stove as well as a large coat and boot room. All of the furniture is new and modern lending it a cosy and warm feel.

All of the bedrooms have pocket sprung matresses with Egyptian cotton bed linen, the floors are carpetted in all of the bedrooms. There is a master bedroom, a double bedroom (option to setup as a twin), a twin room and a single room. The kitchen diner is designed around cooking and entertaining, with a ceramic hob, a Rayburn and a fan oven. There is a large American fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher, hifi and cooking equipment.

The garden is enclosed, with a south facing terrace and breathtaking views. There is ample parking available, as well as an outside table, sun loungers and a barbecue.

Laykin is equipped with underfloor heating, as well as additional radiators. There is a washing machine and tumble drier. Toys, games, high char, cot and stair gates are supplied.

Unfortunately Laykin is unsuitable for wheelchair users.  However from 2024 we now accept dogs as long as they stay downstairs and off the furniture.
