Walks from the doorstep.

You can walk in nearly every direction from the doorstep.

Gunnerside Gill is approx 6 miles round trip.

Muker is 3 miles (lunch in pub or tea room - then 3 miles back)

Low Row is 3 miles (lunch in pub -- then 3 miles back)

Reeth and Keld are about 6 miles. 

During the summer and sometimes in the winter there is a bus service from Reeth to Keld, perfect if you don't want to walk both ways.

We have lots of walking books for you to borrow.

Gunnerside Meadows

Lovely short walk from cottage - through stile between the pub and public toilets.  Follow the path through the meadows and return along the River Swale - maybe 2 miles.

Buttercup Meadows of Gunnerside.

Is there anywhere more beautiful?

The meadows in June - just stunning.

Crackpot Falls

Hidden little treasure off the Crackpot road, about 3 miles from cottage

Gunnerside to Muker

A comfortable walk of 3 mile there - lunch at the pub or tea rooms, a nose around the lovely gift shop and then 3 miles home.

Am I being watched?

Not far from Ravenseat.
