About the property

House near Gunnerside and Muker, Swaledale, Yorkshire Dales, England - Rural Position, In Pasture, Half Hour Walk Through Fields To Muker, 5 Min Drive To Gunnerside

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. Whilst not detached, the house is surrounded by pasture where sheep and cattle roam freely and is perfect for walking a dog.

NOTE, please send Enquiry, instead of Request to Book.

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. East Calvert House has free wifi and a landline (honesty box), as mobile signal can be poor or non-existent, according to provider. The cottage has central heating and the living room has an open fire, too, all oil, electric and coal provided. The cottage also includes an Ipod dock and bedlinen, though not personal towels. We welcome two dogs and request you mention on booking if bringing dogs, although there is NO CHARGE for dogs. A lovely house for a fantastic holiday in beautiful Swaledale. Free wifi. Short breaks are welcome, if we can fit them in, please contact me to ask! We also welcome 2 nt breaks, £15 less than 3 nt price.

About Mrs Maggie Farmer

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!

Mrs Maggie Farmer purchased this house in 2012

Why Mrs Maggie Farmer chose Yorkshire Dales

We love the fact you can walk for miles in many directions from the cottage door, amid spectacular scenery. The Farmer's Arms at Muker is just a half hour walk away through the fields and the newly reopened King's Head at Gunnerside is a couple of miles.

What makes this house unique

The cottage is really comfortable for us and for guests, with lovely views over Swaledale.

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.
