Quietly nestled amongst the picturesque surroundings of Muker's wild-flower meadows lies Arngill, a former Wesleyan Chapel which has been lovingly restored to provide delightful accommodation for four guests and one pet. Featuring original details such as solid oak floor boards, lime-washed walls, exposed beams, window seats and vaulted ceilings, it is clear that the owners have paid great attention to detail and have taken much consideration over the combination of such original features with the contemporary decor and fittings present in this property. Set over two floors, the ground floor benefits for a spacious entrance lobby, a generously proportioned lounge/dining area boasting a wood burning stove and a window seat, as well as a hand crafted kitchen which uses pine panelling recovered from the original chapel. There is also a separate WC on the same floor. On the first floor, there are two tastefully decorated bedrooms; one double and one twin, as well as a separate family bathroom. Guests are also able to enjoy the enclosed patio area with furniture to the front of the property, the perfect place to relax and enjoy the views over the surrounding meadows and Straw Beck.

The Yorkshire Dales is home to over 1,500 square kilometres of the renowned Yorkshire Dales National Park, which is characterised by its unspoilt Dales villages, patchwork of dry stone walls and stunning fells and dales countryside. Visitors are able to travel for miles along quiet country roads, surrounded by magnificent views in every direction; an area dotted with ancient farming communities and rural villages which is typical of this region. This area is perfect for a truly relaxing holiday away from all the stresses and strains of day to day life, where you rediscover a gentler pace of life. It's also great for enjoying a whole host of outdoor pursuits including some of the very best walks in the UK.


Arngill is located in the peaceful village of Muker, one of the most prominent villages in Swaledale. Home to a village shop, post office and a tea shop dating back to 1680, this charming village offers visitors an idyllic retreat from a busy lifestyle, and the beautiful flower-rich meadows draw people in year on year. There are plenty of attractions and activities available in the wider Swaledale area too, as well as a number of villages and hamlets for keen walkers to explore. From Wensleydale to Reeth, Gunnerside and Arkengarthdale, these wonderful little places have plenty to offer the visitor, whether they are keen on exploring or simply looking for a peaceful holiday amongst the beautiful north Yorkshire dales, this magnificent area has something to offer everyone. Reeth, for example, is the starting point for many of the most famous Dales walks and boasts three pubs.
