Ravenseat sits by Whitsundale Beck, at the head of the River Swale, about an hour's walk west of Keld, the halfway point on the Coast-to-Coast footpath.
A working farm, specialising in Swaledale sheep, it offers a welcome break from trudging through peatbogs, whether you just want a cuppa, a cream tea with freshly home-baked scones, or you'd like to rest a little longer with an overnight stay in our Shepherd's Hut, restored by our very own Shepherdess!
You could wake to the sound of sheep, cows, hens, dogs, tractors and free-range children and enjoy a traditional cooked breakfast in the comfort of the hut or, weather permitting, outside on the riverbank with a view of the waterfall.
Cream Teas are available from May to September, although opening hours are variable due to the nature of farming and the location. If travelling a distance it would be advisable to telephone beforehand to avoid disappointment.
