    Perfect peaceful beautiful location, lovely clean rooms, super comfortable bed, maybe replace the chairs with a sofa to cosy up together in the evening. Warm, affable, hosts in Paul and Wendy, nice souvenir bits and pieces for sale in the little shop. Would definitely recommend Keartons for a great holiday base. 10/10

  • "We had a very warm and friendly welcome from Paul and Wendy the owners."

    The self contained apartments are within the hotel. The apartment was very clean had everything you needed. It had fabulous shower and a super king size bed that we would have loved to taken home with us .You get the best of both worlds by staying here, you get the use of the hotel's lounge and can use the bar and cafe for snacks drinks etc. All this plus you are surrounded by beautiful countryside. What more can you ask for.

  • "Apartment was ideal for us as a couple."

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. I asked for a foot stool as I need to elevate my legs - one was there when we arrived and a few helpful supplies as it is far from the shops. Couldn’t have been more helpful, would recommend to friends and family that want somewhere to stay in a very quiet location.

Muker 1.3 miles.

Set within the Kearton Country Hotel, in the quiet village of Thwaite, rests this charming first-floor holiday home, Kearton Apartment.

Perfectly situated, this property offers a romantic and homely setting for a couple looking to explore the delightful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales.

Park up in the private car park and enter through the bar area of the hotel, climbing the stairs to the first floor and stepping over the threshold and into the open-plan living space, where you'll be delighted by the traditional interior, housing rustic Chesterfield armchairs, an eye-catching woven rug and antique wooden furnishings.

After an adventure filled day, put your feet up and unwind with a cup of tea, before heading to the beautifully renovated kitchen to prepare a heartwarming meal, loading the handy dishwasher before serving up at the dining table, idyllically nestled in the window and framing views over the rooftops of the village, where you can indulge in an intimate meal with your significant other.

As the day draws to a close, head off to the superb super-king-size bedroom to rest your head, featuring a grand antique double wardrobe providing ample space to house your belongings, as well as an en-suite shower room, so you can enjoy a relaxing rinse before snuggling up to enjoy a spot of television as you rest your head.

Head downstairs for a bite to eat at the owners on site café, serving up hot drinks and tasty sweet treats, as well as home cooked lunchtime specials, or retreat to the cosy bar and enjoy a pint of local ale in front of the open fire.

Lace up your walking boots and trek the scenic landscape alongside the River Swale to the pretty village of Muker, where you can indulge in refreshments at The Farmers Arms, browse the exhibitions on display at The Old School Art Gallery, depicting the landscape and wildlife of the Yorkshire Dales, and pick up any forgotten essentials at the convenience store.

Travel further afield and visit the nearby market town of Hawes, home to Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese and the spectacular waterfall of Aysgill Force, along with a host of rural heritage to be explored at Dales Countryside Museum.

Head North to the historic town of Barnard Castle, boasting a traditional weekly market and the ruins of a medieval fortress, aptly named Barnard Castle.

For a romantic escape to the Yorkshire Dales, choose Kearton Apartment as a base that you'll be delighted to return to.

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.
