The Burgoyne Hotel stretches its late-Georgian length along the top of the sloping green in Reeth. If you turn round and look the other way, you'll see why: the Swale valley is extremely pretty, and with only the green in front of it, the Burgoyne has an uninterrupted view. Inside, time, money and taste have conspired to produce something of a masterpiece to which has been added the magic ingredient of a warm welcome.
  There are two elegant and richly furnished sitting rooms on the ground floor, which - though modern - retain some of their distinctive character: an inglenook fireplace and heavy oak doors. You'll eat well at the restaurant, where the crystal and the silver stand out against the cool greens of the walls and matching napkins. The bedrooms, most of which face the valley, are beautifully appointed and deeply comfortable. Window seats offer pleasant perches for people who just want to sit and enjoy the view.
  Rather than hack space for bathrooms out of the well-proportioned rooms, one or two bathrooms are across the corridor voluminous robes and slippers are provided for the short journey.
