  • Mrs Hill

    “Wonderful welcome from hosts Stuart & Doris.”

    Cake was delicious!

    Cake was delicious! Cottage certainly has everything you need. Cosy & quiet. Superbly situated for walking Upper Swaledale without needing to use the car. Spectacular scenery.

The property

This stone-built terraced cottage is wonderfully located in the centre of Keld, three miles from the village of Muker in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Full of immense character; combining many of the original features with a delightful mix of contemporary furnishings, this Yorkshire cottage creates the perfect blend of old and new – a holiday home of some merit.

With parking immediately outside, guests enter through the front door to a well-presented kitchen with a breakfast bar, providing a great place to relax and indulge in some home cooking.

The sitting room is spacious for two guests and includes a cosy woodburning stove set in the inglenook, a warm space to enjoy after a challenging walk across the dramatic Swaledale countryside.

Upstairs there is a bright and airy double adjoining a quality en-suite with freestanding bath and separate shower unit.

Outside is a small sitting area on the roadside, providing an ideal spot to sit and talk to the friendly locals and remove the walking boots before indulging in a rewarding glass of wine.

A friendly village pub is within a ten-minute walk, a must stop on the way home from a venturesome day out, to relax and unwind taking in the spectacular views.

Nearby Muker provides a popular public house as well as a convenience store for your daily essentials.

High Head is surrounded by spectacular Swaledale countryside providing an abundance of walking trails for all levels, a holiday destination to get away from it all and enjoy a romantic break.

About the location


Thwaite 1 mile; Reeth 8.9 miles; Richmond 25.5 miles

Muker is a village and civil parish at the western end of Swaledale, one of the Yorkshire Dales, in North Yorkshire, England. It is situated within the district of Richmondshire. From the late 19th century, Muker witnessed an increasing number of visitors and holiday makers, and today the village boasts many walking opportunities, with a selection of public footpaths in Upper Swaledale. Muker also hosts a village shop, a pub - The Farmers Arms, as well as an art gallery, craft shop and a café within the old school building. Originally the Vicarage, the Muker village tea shop was built in 1680 and retains much of its 'Olde worlde charm' today. A Park Information Point for the Yorkshire Dales National Park can be found at the Muker Village shop. The village has one church; the Parish Church of Saint Mary, a Grade II* listed building. The River Swale runs parallel to the village, with Kisden Hill offering a charming backdrop.
