We are happy to share our knowledge of the area and our farming experiences, as well as our home, with our guests. Depending on the season there is lots to see on the farm, although, sorry but we can't make any guarantees.
Lambing time April / May - feed a lamb or if you are lucky, see one born.
Clipping time August - see the sheep being sheared.
Hay time July / August - we still make small bale hay, the scent is heavenly.
All year round the sheep need gathering in - see them being gathered on the fell or driven along the road by farmer & dog.
Ask us about the field barns, the miles & miles of dry stone walling, the Swaledale sheep, the landscape, our way of life - we are always glad to help.

Farmer's wife, B&B host, holiday cottage proprietor and proud owner of a cute-as-could-be Shepherd's Hut. Farming is a 24/7 lifestyle meaning we don't get away very often so by sharing my Shepherd's Hut and welcoming B&B guests into our home, the world comes to us. I write a blog so that we can share with others what's happening on the farm and what is going on around us in this beautiful landscape of Upper Swaledale. I love the untamed ruggedness and wide open spaces surrounding where I live. Its vast and its peaceful but its teaming with life; birds, insects, tiny mammals, wild flowers, wind & weather. Come and experience it for yourself even if its only for a short time - you will love it too.
