Schoolmaster Pasture is a detached farmhouse situated in a rural location near to the village of Hurst, just six miles from Reeth in the Yorkshire Dales. The cottage has five bedrooms (one double, two twins, one family room and one small single) and a family bathroom, which makes it suitable for ten people. The cottage also contains a fitted kitchen, a dining room, a games room and a sitting room with an open fire. Outside the cottage is off road parking on grass, bike storage and an enclosed front garden with outdoor furniture. Set amidst unspoilt, open moorland on a traditional Dales working farm with magnificent views over Arkengarthdale and Swaledale, Schoolmaster Pasture is a truly wonderful holiday cottage.


Nice warm house with comfortable and cosy log/coal fire in the lounge. The property was very spacious and had all the comforts of home. There were great walks right from the doorstep.

A real taste of country living in an active sheep ranching area. A nice mix of of old moor living with just the right amount of modern comforts.
Dr Sherman

Schoolmaster Pasture is a lovely cottage, warm and cosy. Beautiful setting in remote countryside, well equipped.
Mrs Chowdhury

Schoolmaster pasture is a wonderful, warm and large farmhouse. Beautifully remote with excellent walking and running from the door. Would highly recommend to anybody looking for an active yet peaceful holiday. The AGA was brilliant, and the information file was one of the most comprehensive I've encountered. Loved the fact that there were local walks and maps enclosed. Excellent for a group gathering, with large bedrooms and a beautiful shared bathroom. Not on the website but there is a separate toilet downstairs.

If you want a complete get away with friends or family this is the property. Excellent directions provided by the owners. Lovely and clean, well equipped large cottage. Only reason this property didn't get a five from us is that the oven struggled to cater for ten people (too small and didn't retain its heat), the lounge didn't comfortably seat all of us at once and shower was on the snug size! Please don't let this put you off, we managed very well, just ate late and spread out round the house. Large dining table provided for games/card nights and even the little sloping pool table with dodgy cues provided the teens with some entertainment. Great walks from the property, if not a little remote! We walked into Reeth over the moor directly from the property via Hurst (about 4.5 miles, took an hour and half). Visits out to Hawes, Hardraw, Aysgarth, Richmond, Tan Hill all within good distance. Would definitely book again, just maybe plan to eat out more or take a slow cooker with us.
