"Keld" Top 5 Page for this destination Yorkshire Dales National Park Things to Do Tip by Sjalen


In the upper end of Swaledale, you find Keld, a place which is more a scattering of houses and a Wesleyan chapel, rather than a village. Set along the beginning of the river Swale, it is known for its waterfalls, but primarily for being a great place to walk in, with paths back to other Swaledale villages such as Muker and Gunnerside. There is no shop here but you will find a hostel where you can also get National park information. If you have your own car rather than rely on the bus, you can drive on to England's highest located pub, the Tan Hill inn, which is three miles up the fellside in the middle of nowhere.

Address: Keld, Swaledale
Directions: Just after Thwaite, on the Swaledale road to Kirby Stephen.
