About Anthony and Theresa Robertshaw
We live in West Yorkshire and have always loved the Yorkshire Dales, having visited regularly as children. We usually go for walks from Keld, one of our favourites is to follow the river Swale down to Muker. A gentle stroll of just over 3 miles, much of it through wild flower meadows. We also cycle, usually on the road. One of our favourite runs, when we are feeling fit, is up to Tan Hill, down Arkengarthdale to Reeth and then back up Swaledale past Gunnerside and Muker.
Anthony and Theresa Robertshaw purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Anthony and Theresa Robertshaw chose Muker
In 2011 we had the opportunity of buying Patna which we renovated with with the help of a talented , local builder. We live around 60 miles away and visit most weekends.

Cosy in Keld
Patna is a characterful, well equipped property, of an ideal size for my wife, son and I. Anthony is an excellent and thoughtful host. The property has many modern touches which make living in this relatively remote corner of the Dales park an absolute pleasure with few compromises to the more densely populated areas ie perfect for us! Please note the web page I saw said the property location was in Muker, but this property is actually in Keld, which for us was better. We would happily return to Patna in the future.
We have just spent another wonderful week in this comfortable and cosy cottage. A generous welcome tray was provided and lovely fresh flowers in every room. The location of the cottage is so peaceful. We loved the sheep coming to say hello on a morning. This was our second walking holiday to Swaledale having totally fallen in love with the area. We enjoyed walks to and from Reeth making use of the little white bus. We had planned to eat out a couple of evenings but the cottage was so comfortable that we didn't want to leave again. We lit the stove in the living room every evening - a coal bunker of free fuel is provided which is very generous.
The cottage now has super fast broadband and a new smart tv which we enjoyed on an evening.
We have stayed in a number of cottages but this is by far our favourite.We were really sad to leave and can't wait to return soon.
Thank you for your review, we look forward to your next visit.
We love this area and have visited before and will no doubt visit again. The is our first time in Keld and the cottage was a great place to stay. The owners had left a little welcome gift for us including some wine and cake, my wife liked the cake....Keld is the middle of the coast to coast walk so there is very easy access to lots of footpaths and bridleways nearby.
The local pub is less than 5 mins walk up the road and although the food selection is small it is all beautifully cooked.
The house has TV, WI-FI (handy as the nearest phone reception is over a mile away), one double and one single bed (in two rooms). The bathroom is between them both with a shower over the bath.
Everything is clean and tidy, well looked after, the perfect place to stay for a quite break.
We are really pleased that you have enjoyed your stay in Keld. Thank you for taking the time to give us feed back, we hope you will return.
Delightful cottage in beautiful location
We had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. It is a beautiful location with walks you can do straight from the door. Or equally get a bus down the Dale. The cottage is well equipped and the owners helpful and welcoming. Recommended
