Harriet’s Cottage offers guests a super base from which to enjoy exploring the local area. Perfect for guests wanting to leave the car behind. A short walk away, guests will be able to find the excellent local pub which offers great quality food and drink as well as a small shop offering groceries and local produce. There is also a craft shop with a small cafe and the famous Muker Wool Shop.
Perfect for guests wanting to enjoy a walking or cycling holiday, there are numerous established footpaths, cycle paths and bridleways that lead straight from the village and out into the heart of beautiful Swaledale, Wensleydale and Arkengarthdale, through some of the popular villages and towns nearby which include Gunnerside, Hawes, Keld, Thwaite, Low Row, Fremington and Reeth which all lie within a ten mile radius. There are many excellent local pubs, restaurants and country inns which provide the perfect resting place before, during or after a long walk or cycle.
