Yorkshire Dales villages are some of the most idyllic and tranquil places to visit in the UK, The Dales is an untouched place that has the feeling of stepping back in time with its stone walls, rolling hills and traditional pubs and the village of Reeth is a perfect example.
Found near Richmond, Reeth came fourth in a chart compiled by WellBox of the most tranquil places to relax and reduce the chances of burnout. With a population of 700, the village had the lowest crime rate of all towns and villages in the research.
It scored 71.6 out of 100 in ‘peace’ points based on a range of factors such as crime rate, number of hiking trails, birdwatching trails and fishing trails.
It’s a simple place to destress with its walking and birdwatching trails. Also featured in the study was Dartmouth, which topped the chart and Kingswear both in Devon. Also, Over Hadden, in the Peak District came in third with Reeth taking a respectable fourth place.
Reeth has a range of 12 hiking trails, and three bird-watching trails, according to the study. It is also in a range of some spectacular sights such as the iconic Buttertub Pass, Tan Hill the highest pub in Britain and Ravenseat Farm, which is home to the popular show Our Yorkshire Farm.
In the village are three pubs, which are perfect to visit after you’ve had a day out on one of its many trails that sit on its doorstep.
