Due to the increasing effect of COVID-19 on our lives and the directives given to us by the government and specialists alike we have decided to close both our B&B and holiday cottage for the foreseeable future, these are very challenging times for everyone, but the only way to deal with this is to stay at home and self isolate. The sooner everybody that can do that, does do that the better and the sooner life will get back to normal.

We would also like to send our support and thanks to all the fantastic NHS workers and other essential key workers who are putting themselves on the front line to treat us, protect us and supply us with everything we need to keep us all going at theses difficult times.

Not only to all our friends and customers but to everyone who reads this, please listen to the experts and stay safe and see you on the other side of this terrible episode.

Best wishes
Sheila & Dave

Quietly situated in the Yorkshire Dales village of Muker in beautiful Swaledale, Stoneleigh holiday cottage has a picturesque south-facing cottage garden with patio and garden furniture at the front. At the rear of the cottage is it’s own private car park with access to a secure garage for bikes. The cottage backs onto beautiful meadows, very popular when the wild flowers are out. Easy walking to the village Tea Shop and Pub, both very good for food at reasonable prices.

Muker & Swaledale

Muker in Swaledale; an area known for its outstanding beauty, is popular with walkers, especially in June when the fields are in full bloom of wild flowers. The Pennine Way and The Coast to Coast pass nearby. There are lots of walks for any ability. Muker Village Store and Tea Shop is at the bottom of the village, and serves as the National Park Information Point. The cosy Tea Room offers a wide range of choice on the menu. The Farmers Arms serves home-made food and a range of Local Beers such as Black Sheep, Theakston and other local micro-breweries. The Swaledale Woollens shop sells locally made, handmade and machine-knitted sweaters and gloves. The Old School is now an Art gallery and Gift shop.

Swaledale and the surrounding dales offer a number of great attractions nearby while you stay at Stoneleigh, the Wensleydale Creamery and White Scarr Caves are just a few miles away near Hawes. In lower Wensleydale there are the Black Sheep and Theakstons Breweries, the Forbidden Corner and Thorpe Perrow Arboretum. There are also a number of castles open to the public at Richmond, Middleham, Bolton, Barnard Castle and Raby.

We are also close to two scenic railways. The closest is the Wensleydale Railway running from Leyburn to Bedale and slightly further away, the Settle to Carlisle route which takes in the Ribblehead Viaduct.
