Pry House Farm Shepherd’s Hut...

Would you like to wake up to the call of the Lapwing and the Curlew?
Would you like to have breakfast in a traditional Yorkshire Dales hay meadow?
Would you like to gaze at the stars in an inky black sky?
Then Pry House Farm Shepherd’s Hut is the place for you.

Small but perfectly formed, idyllic for solo travellers or couples alike your hut-in-the-hills sits on Pry House Farm home field which has some of the finest views in Upper Swaledale. Miles and miles of open space with panoramic views in all directions; what our shepherd’s hut lacks in size is more than matched by its stunning location...

Pry House Farm is perfect for star gazing. Free from street lighting or road glare and miles away from any industrial light pollution, the skies at Pry House Farm are huge, uninterrupted and very, very dark.

Guests coming to watch the night sky have use folding chairs, red light torches, stargazing guide booklets, rugs, flasks of hot drinks and binoculars. Binoculars are useful but not essential as a lot can be seen with the naked eye.
Most importantly we have plenty of open spaces to view the vast night sky. The best time to view the stars is from mid August through to early May. On a clear night in Autumn the Milky Way is easily visible from Pry House Farm.
There are thousands of stars, planets and constellations to look for with shooting stars streaking across the sky like silent fireworks.
The stars are best observed if there is no moon so a new moon phase is always the best time to visit however under our massive, unbroken sky the moon itself is a wonderful sight. To watch the moon rise slowly over the horizon is a special experience.

About Chris and Glenda Calvert...

"Of all the great Dales, Swaledale seems to come nearest to one's idea of a pure, unsullied Dale..."

We are a local couple living at the head of Swaledale on a hill farm where we breed purebred Swaledale sheep.

Chris has farmed in Swaledale all his life, as has generations of his family before him. He has, however, roots in Low Row as his great, great grandfather was a lead miner living in a property very close to Hillcrest.
Perhaps that was the extra ingredient that made us fall in love with Hillcrest Cottage.
Being married to a farmer means little free time to ourselves so to keep myself out of mischief I welcome Bed & Breakfast guests to the farmhouse.
I am involved in a community project in Keld, help Chris with the sheep particularly at lambing time and write a popular hill farming blog about life in Upper Swaledale.

We look forward to welcoming you to Upper Swaledale, "Beautiful Dale, home of the Swale", in the Yorkshire Dales... Bed & Breakfast at Pry House Farm, Keld or to Hillcrest Holiday Cottage, Low Row.
