  • "Lovely stay albeit too short."

    One of our favourite destinations. Great location for walking and escaping this world's madness. Very comfortable accommodation. Cosy and warm, except one of the bathrooms which doesn't have a radiator, so showering was a bit chilly. Owners, Phil and Wendy are extremely friendly and very helpful. We will definately return when work patterns allow.

  • "Beautiful location."

    Owners friendly welcoming and helpful. Only slight drawback could be obtaining an evening meal. Many pubs on reduced hours and requesting pre booking. We were fine as we gone prepared to do our own catering.

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.
