Farmers Arms was great for atmosphere and food although this is undergoing a change of ownership. The t-room and shop in Muker are also a good stop. Walking in the area is very favourable, lots of waterfalls, old mine workings and various market towns. Buttertubs Pass and the Buttertubs themselves are worth a stop but be mindful where you pause with a car. The pie shop on Richmond market square is a must, The Noted Pie Shop. Everyone we came across in the area was friendly, chatty and very welcoming. A very pleasant stay in a wonderful location. I only marked Nettlebed down because the bathroom does feel very tired, the shower is adequate BUT the description does say you have to be a certain type to stay here. It is remote, what I was looking for. We would return!

I love Nettlebed very much, so this was my third stay. It wouldn't appeal to everyone, but it's rustic character has great charm. The cottage is very relaxed and its location is second to none.

Walks from the cottage - Crackpot waterfall, Summer Lodge and the track between Low Row and Gunnerside (take in the pub at Gunnerside). Further afield - Keld to Muker along the river, Reeth to Healaugh or Reeth to Grinton. The Bike Cafe in Grinton is excellent. Always use the Friday night chip van!

Good communication and excellent information given before stay and on arrival, quiet setting, cosy old farmhouse with lovely views. Well equipped kitchen. If 6-8 people were actually staying, one loo and bathroom would be quite a struggle and the living room would have been quite a squash. Recycling facilities could be arranged a little better… maybe labelled boxes in the outhouse and a request to put out on the relevant days. Paper and cardboard really should be recycled from the house- having to squeeze them through the entrance to the small recycling bin in Muker will not encourage people to do it… Lovely stay- thank you!

If you intend to walk on any routes which are not popular well trodden ones, ensure you have OS maps as footpaths are poorly labelled, if at all in some places. In some places dogs and walkers do not feel that welcome or are positively discouraged! Bit of a shame. Gunnerside gill and Muker to Keld walks both lovely. Recommend Cafe Curva in Hawes and Farmers arms in Muker.

Glad you enjoyed your holiday. I'm afraid, however, that some guests are really not very helpful and if the boxes were left in the outhouse, they would just stay there for ever and not be emptied, or the poor housekeeper would have to lug them down to the road. Paper and cardboard need to be in a blue bag, which blew away years ago, so is not viable at Nettlebed. Note, there is a proper recycling centre at Muker (and Reeth), where there are big bins for paper, tins and plastic, and bottles; it's in the car park.
