East Calvert House is a beautifully renovated house, found along a single track road between Gunnerside and Muker, in upper Swaledale. South-facing, the cottage is spacious, with new kitchen next to the dining room, and separate living room. Also downstairs are a utility room and cloakroom. Upstairs there are master and twin bedrooms overlooking marvellous views over Swaledale, and another double bedroom, along with family bathroom and separate shower room.

There is a small garden to the front of the house and parking directly in front of the house for two cars, with a nearby little layby for another car if necessary.

About the Owner

We live in Bournemouth, but my husband loves walking in Swaledale. So when our son took a place at Sheffield University, we took the opportunity to buy East Calvert House - and we love it!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Had a fabulous week walking from the front door. East Calvert House is such a gently renovated place to stay. The roaring fire was very welcome after each day's hard walking. Will definitely be back!" Sharon, Kathy, Tazzle and Hebe, Northants.



"We have had a lovely week in this very cosy cottage. Weather has been variable! The open fire has been wonderful. We would recommend the King's Head in Gunnerside, we had two very good meals there. Reeth (nearest place for supplies) has 2 shops, newsagents and a bakery. Many thanks!" Beverley and Paul, Woodbridge.



"Had a magical week at the cottage. Mostly sunshine on the walks. Local people so friendly. On a rainy day visited Hawes and the cheese factory. Lots of cheese to try! We all loved the open fire, especially Mattie! Thank-you, the walking books most helpful. Did all the local ones." Valerie and Peter.

Perfect property to enjoy the Yorkshire Dales

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a super location. The views are beautiful with some lovely walking right on the doorstep. The accommodation was clean and comfortable for the six adults, one baby and two dogs in our family group. It was very well equipped. The owner and manager provided a very efficient, friendly service and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at East Calvert Cottage. We would definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family and would love to return for another holiday to enjoy the peace and tranquility that East Calvert Cottage provided. ECC is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy some of the superb walking that the Yorkshire Dales provide.
