Accommodation Description

Bridge House is a fantastic, spacious, holiday home in Muker within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Brilliant for groups, large families or even two or three families holidaying together. A great choice for your next celebration or family gathering. The house comfortably sleeps 12 guests and 2 well behaved dogs, so your furry friends can holiday with you!

Bridge House sits in a prominent position, opposite a babbling beck within the heart of the village and surrounded by the Yorkshire Dales countryside. This three-storey holiday home is striking and will not disappoint. Stone built with a gorgeous stone arch over the front door welcomes you into the grand entrance hall.

Off the entrance hall to the left is the beautifully modernised kitchen diner, offering you ample work and cupboard space. There are two ovens, one electric with induction hob and the other a traditional electric Aga. The kitchen is also thoroughly kitted out with almost every utensil under the sun, ready and waiting for you to cook up a storm during your stay. Off the kitchen is a utility room housing a washing machine and tumble dryer and downstairs cloakroom with w.c. and basin. Via the kitchen, there is internal access to the garage.

The dining room is on the ground floor with seating for 12 people around a large banquet table with a log burner at the far end of the room ready to be lit for cosy heat and ambiance. The large sash windows allow views across the farmland opposite.

The carpeted stairs to the first floor give access to a large landing which boasts gorgeous large prints and a chandelier. Off the hallway you shall find two of the six bedrooms, and a large, comfortable living room with Smart TV and log burning stove. Down the way is the family bathroom with shower cubicle, bath, basin and w.c.

The bedrooms on the first floor consist of one double bedroom which is light and airy and one twin bedroom with two single beds. The single bedroom also allows access into the garden of Bridge House through the glass panelled door, which when closed allows the sunlight to stream into the twin room.

Continue upstairs to the second floor where you shall find four more bedrooms all with ensuites. The first is the master super king bedroom, spacious and airy with views out to the farmland and beck opposite plus an ensuite shower room. There is also a king bedroom with another ensuite shower room to the rear of the property. The final two double bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom with shower over, one room faces towards the beck with a lovely spot to sit and read between the two sash widows, the other overlooks the garden.

The garden is to the side of the property, accessed either by the front door or as mentioned through the twin bedroom. The patio is home to a large wooden outdoor table and a BBQ to dine alfresco in the summer months. The garden area is above the patio and accessed via stone slabbed steps. The garden does have a slight incline to it so please note, younger children would need to be supervised in this area.

There is secure bike storage in the garage to the left of the property and there is parking for one car in front of the garage. Further parking can be found in the lay-by over the bridge or the lay-by in the village. Or on the opposite side of the beck from the property there is a general car park, but charges will apply here, so best to use the large lay-bys . Up by the layby in the village you shall also find the village shop and café which offers wonderful brews! EV Charging is available (charges will apply).

The pub in the village is open during the holiday season but closed Monday and Tuesdays. We also have other great pubs only a short drive away. Gunnerside offers a fantastic community pub and proper pub grub. In the opposite direction there is a choice from the Kearton Country Hotel bar or Keld Lodge. Further down dale there is the Punch Bowl, which offers amazing gastro style meals and has a fabulous gin and ale selection. Reeth has three great pubs and a hotel with wine bar, all dog friendly. And of course, one not to be missed is the famous Tan Hill Inn, the highest pub in England only about a 20-minute drive from Muker.

The area is brilliant for walking, straight from the door you have access to walks in almost every direction. So, grab your dogs and your walking boots and explore the local trails, from more strenuous hikes up Kisdon Hill and Gunnerside Gill to the lower-level strolls along the River Swale.

If cycling is more your thing, we have plenty of that here in Swaledale. Home to loads of mountain bike trails and countless road rides again straight from the door. Bridge House sits directly on the route of the 2014 Tour de France route as well as being on the Tan Hill Loop which is a popular 27-mile road ride loop up to the Tan Hill Pub…do it anti clockwise for an easy downhill on the way back to the Bridge House. For those riding with younger children there is the Swale Trail, which is a 12-mile trail which runs from Reeth to Keld (accessible from Muker). This is quite a unique trail in the National Park as about 70% of the trail is off road. The trail runs along the bottom of the valley, but there are some steep sections towards Keld which little legs may struggle with.

Bridge House is perfectly based to explore the Northern Dales and the market towns of Hawes, Leyburn and Richmond. Slightly further afield there is Kirby Stephen and Barnard Castle.

  1. Ian

    Wonderful house, very well equipped kitchen, big comfortable beds and crisp linen. Plenty of towels, hot water etc

  2. Angela

    A great stay at bridge house. Had everything we needed for an excellent family weekend in the Dales – thank you!

  3. Anne-Marie

    Beautiful house in a beautiful location. Had everything we needed for our birthday celebration and plenty of space to do it in. Bedrooms were spacious and clean along with the bathrooms. Kitchen well equipped with everything we needed. If visiting be aware the water is piping hot so caution if you have children! And don’t make the mistake of using the wrong bin as you will be verbally attacked by the not so friendly neighbour next door!! I would take extra loo roll too as we ran out. We had an amazing time here and it was a joy waking up to the sound of the brook flowing near the property and watching the birds feed their young in the bird box on the property. would love to go back in the future. Thanks for having us xx

  4. Tracy

    Great location in beautiful countryside. House was perfect in size, for 10 of us to spend time together as a family. 3 children loved the lounge with wide screen tv and the garden which was enclosed. Wonderful day at Aysgarth falls walks and exploring with a picnic. Thanks Hannah for helpful information and easy booking and communication.

  5. Paula

    Fabulous house with lots of internal space, gorgeous wooden furniture and had everything we needed. Lovely views over the river and dales. The village is quaint with lots of beautiful walks. Would definitely recommend it.

  6. Elaine

    Very spacious beautiful location – stunning position – highly recommend the property – it was perfect for our family as we were going to a wedding in Bainbridge.

  7. Karen

    We really couldn’t fault this property. We stayed for celebrations for a joint 60th and 90th Birthday. All equipment was available to feed 12 adults for 3 days. Being able to walk on various routes straight from the house was fantastic. We were treated to 3days of glorious weather and spent most of our time(mainly eating!) outside in the lovely garden. Gas BBQ a real bonus. We also had the incredible Arora on the Saturday night. Totally amazing place at very respectable price. Thank You

  8. Steve

    The house is in a small village with beautiful views and lovely walks

  9. Pam

    Lovely accommodation in stunning location. Plenty of space. Only minor disappointment was the local pub was shut due to landlord injury and refurbishment 🙁

  10. Dave

    A truly, magical secret oasis in the middle of North Yorkshire, in a house that clearly best represents the idyllic break away from the busy in a way I can only be described once you’ve experienced it. Our family got together for the first time after a few yearsand we had a sensational time.

  11. Cameron

    Fantastic weekend with friends in the beautiful Mukar! Thanks for allowing us to stay Hannah – would recommend very highly!

  12. Jason

    Amazing stay here, we really hope we can come back again!

  13. Sue

    This is a beautiful house which met the needs for our family of 11 for a birthday celebration. Because of the time of year the local pub was closed but we did visit both Tan Hill pub and The Kings Head which were not too far away. Lots of walks if the weather is good, unfortunately we stayed the weekend of Storm Isha so not able to take advantage. We did have a problem with hot water but the caretaker helped resolve it. We felt we would have benefited from an ‘information’ booklet as there were no instructions on how to use anything/ bins/ recycling etc. Think the log burners may need cleaning out as well! the house is so well equipped and we had a lovely time. Thank you

  14. Wull

    Great stay Massive house Great for families to come together in Great walks to be had with or without dogs lol Will defo stay again

  15. Honor

    Had a fantastic stay at Bridge house. Great space for our party of 12 in a beautiful location. Hannah was great with information for our stay would love to go back again highly recommended accommodation for a large group/family get together.

  16. Fi

    We had a lovely weekend in this beautiful old shooting lodge. A large, warm house in Muker surrounded by the Yorkshire dales, and mainly sheep and waterfalls. We enjoyed walking, pubs, and had great fun at Bolton castle in Leyburn (half hour drive). Great for kids with boar, dungeons, weapons, archery, birds of prey display, witch trial and more. The house is really well equipped and spacious enough for three families cohabiting without getting on top of one another. The abundance of bathrooms is brilliant. The only draw backs from our perspective were the small garden (boys are into footie) and the lack of local supermarket. The community shop (open 10-4) is great for essentials, but we struggled to find somewhere to get other supplies resulting in pub teas (not really a hardship!). I wouldn’t recommend for under 5s sleeping on top floor, just because of the steep staircase to 2nd floor, but there is plenty of alternative accommodation for them! Parking was easy in lay-bys.
