Interaksjon med Gjester

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.
The meadows & pastureland surrounding the Shepherds Hut are home to dozens of ground nesting birds; Lapwing, Curlew, Redshank, Oyster Catchers, Skylark to name but a few. The Shepherd's Hut makes an ideal 'hide' to observe the birds particularly late afternoon & early evening when they come looking for food.

Pry House Farm is situated 2 miles west of the tiny hamlet of Keld in Upper Swaledale. Keld has a tearoom, Information Centre & small hotel, Keld Lodge with excellent restaurant.

There are lots of cycle routes both on & off-road some a mere 2 miles from the 2014 Tour de France route.
Keld has the highest concentration of waterfalls in England.
During 19c lead mining was the main industry of the area. There are still remains of lead mining times to be discovered.
Tan Hill Inn, 5 miles away, is the highest pub in England.
Lots of good, traditional pubs, tearooms and other quality eating places very close by.

Being married to a farmer means Chris & I have little spare time however we both have our hobbies; Chris has two vintage tractors and I make proddy rugs and other articles using the traditional proddy & hooky methods.

Andre ting å merke seg

Please note that bedding is supplied but not personal towels. Please ask for single person discount.
During your stay we would like to guarentee 100% peace & quiet which comes in abundance at no extra charge! However we are a working hill farm where sheep bleat, dogs bark and tractors brum! Our farming and our livestock come first and we make no excuse for that therefore at some times of year there will be farm noises.

The Shepherds Hut is an absolutely lovely place to stay, the hut was super cosy. Glenda was a brilliant host providing everything we needed and also shared her knowledge of the area, the hut is in a brilliant location for walking, especially if you like waterfalls and nice pubs!

Lovely little Shepard's hut. The views were incredible, and although it was tiny, we had everything we needed! Very cozy and romantic

Thanks David for this advice. I like your first idea. I have been head scratching about this for a bit but pretty sure your idea is do-able.

Very good experience. The hut is great and has brilliant views out over the vast and beautiful landscape of Swaledale. It is well located and Glenda is a wonderful host. The toilet, fridge and washing facilities are all very close to the hut and easy to use. The granola in the Yorkshire Continental breakfast was very very good and mornings sitting out looking at the changing landscape and watching the birds was great. Highly recommend

This is the place to get back to nature, to observe the rhythms of the day, and to be at peace. The curlew, snipe, meadow pipits and lapwing were amazing company and the distant baa-ing of the sheep comforting. There is just so much to see here, even if you never move from the comfort of the hut! And if you do, nowhere is far. Best wifi signal I found was 3G on the road to Nateby at the Cumbrian border, or 4G in Hawes car park. I preferred to eat out at lunchtime and pop something for tea in the fridge. I called in to Humble Pie Deli in Askrigg on my way home - wish I'd found it on my way there - home-baked food is amazing and not expensive! Glenda is a lovely lady and very amenable, can't recommend this place highly enough for a back-to-simplicity break.

We absolutely loved staying here! Will definitely come back to stay again in the future, hopefully for longer. The hut itself was perfect with gorgeous views and run by a lovely host. So thankful that she accommodated our being vegan, it meant a lot. Thanks again!

We had a lovely time in the shepherd's hut, perfect little break to get away from the pressures of modern life. The scenery of rolling hills and sheep were very scenic, and it was nice to be woken up by the sound of sheep and birds. The continental breakfast was lovely and included local yoghurts and milk. Thank you for guiding us around the local area and the hospitality. Would love to visit again, maybe even try out the b&b!

As our very first AirBnB guests in the Shepherd's Hut it is wonderful to know that you enjoyed your stay. We start lambing mid April and finish mid May - we would love to see you next year! Best wishes Glenda

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.
