Area Overview

Set in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Swaledale is named after the River Swale which runs through it. Green meadows, dry stone walls and limestone outcrops are typical of this pretty part of North Yorkshire, which is quieter than some of the tourist traps in the National Park. The peaceful and unspoilt landscape attracts many walkers and cyclists, with the villages of Muker, Keld and Gunnerthwaite providing tearooms and pubs for a welcome rest. Average high summer temperatures reach 22°C, with winter temperatures hovering around 1°C.

Things To Do in Swaledale

  • Swaledale Museum, Reeth: Depicts life and work in rural Swaledale.
  • Muker: Tea rooms, gallery and craft shop, gift shops and pubs.
  • Keld and the waterfalls: Two long-distance footpaths, the Coast to Coast Walk and the Pennine Way, cross in Keld. Four waterfalls can be found nearby: East Gill Force, Wain Wath Force, Catrake Force and Kisdon Force.
  • Dales Bike Centre, Fremington: Bike hire for all the family.
  • Swaledale Festival: End of May and the beginning of June; walks, music and the arts throughout Swaledale.
