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.


The delightful village of Muker is located only one mile away from Scarr House Farm, and is famous for being home to the unique ‘Swaledale' sheep, with their distinctive black heads! Boasting a village store and teashop featuring two Victorian rooms with open fires to while away the hours amongst a cosy setting, as well as a local pub, this tiny village is a haven of peace and tranquillity. The village is also in a perfect location for exploring the wider towns and villages of Swaledale, including Reeth and Hawes. The attractive village of Reeth, for example, boasts a quaint selection of shops, pubs, cafés, a community resource centre and a national park centre whilst the nearby valley of Wensleydale boasts a number of exciting waterfalls and walking trails, which can be enjoyed all year round.
