Pry House Farm Shepherd’s Hut - 2 miles West of Keld in Upper Swaledale

River Cam

Full Description
Small but perfectly formed, idyllic for solo travellers or couples alike your hut-in-the-hills sits on Pry House Farm home field which has some of the finest views in Upper Swaledale. Miles and miles of open space with panoramic views in all directions; what our shepherd’s hut lacks in size is more than matched by its stunning location. Pry House Shepherd’s Hut is truly a get-away-from-it-all experience with acres of space and Mother Nature your neighbour. In April and May the field is full of ewes and lambs, in June and July the grass is left to grow for hay. Home Field is a traditional hay meadow and is rich in wild flower, herbs and grasses.

ncluded in your stay is a guaranteed 100% Yorkshire Dales breakfast basket with Yockenthwaite Farm granola or muesli, milk from Wensleydale, butter and yoghurt from the Wensleydale Creamery (famous for its cheese and well worth a visit!), bread from Hawes, preserves from Raydale and naturally Yorkshire Tea. During your stay we would like to guarantee 100% peace and quiet which comes by the bucketful at Pry House at no extra charge! We are however a working farm where sheep bleat, dogs woof and tractors brum! Our farming and our livestock come first and we make no excuse for that. At different time of year there are different levels of activity; lambing, hay time, shearing for example which makes staying on a farm all the more appealing.

Situated in the Pennine hills Pry House Farm is close to the Pennine Way, the Coast to Coast, the Herriot Way and the Swale Way. Hundreds of walkers, every year, pass through as part of their long distance walking challenge. Others come to discover the dozens of public footpaths and bridleways to be found in Upper Swaledale. Pry House Farm B&B is perfectly situated to explore sections of the Pennine Way taking in Ravenseat and Tan Hill , to find the source of the Swale or conquer lesser known fells such as Rogan’s Seat (2,205 ft) and Wild Boar (2323 ft).
There are footpaths here for all abilities; tackle the summit of Great Shunner Fell (2349 ft) or have a go at the Swale Trail (family mountain bike path) or the gentle, low level Every Barn Tells A Story walks - there’s something for everybody in Swaledale.
Have a look at the YDNPA website for details of the Swale Trail and the EBTAS project. Kisdon Hill dominates between Keld and Muker but again there are several options depending on fitness or favour: over the top via the Corpse Way or follow the river Swale as it sometimes rushes, sometimes meanders along the valley bottom. At Pry House Farm B&B we have maps and books and trail guides galore including three children’s guides for local walks that the whole family can do together.
Let us help you plan your day. We are always happy to help, share our local knowledge and point you in the right direction – just ask. And at the end of your day, having worked up an appetite, there are several good eating and drinking places within easy reach. Try Keld Lodge or The Farmers Arms in Muker.

But we have more to offer than just walks! There are many fabulous family days out within easy reach of Hillcrest. The Wensleydale Creamery experience in Hawes tells the story of cheese making in the dales and Bolton Castle has falconry, armoury and wild boar!
But for a truely wizard day out visit the Forbidden Corner near Middleham. Quite honestly words cannot describe this fantasy playground in the depth of the countryside with shocks and surprises round every corner. A guaranteed day to remember!
