A Warm Welcome...

Butt House is run and owned by Tony and Linda, who have been in the hospitality industry for many years. Their bed and breakfast accommodation caters for the single nights stay and for longer holidays.

It is situated in the village of Keld, located in Upper Swaledale, an ‘oasis’ for walkers, cyclists or photographers. Throughout its long history, the building itself has been a former farmhouse, village shop and post office.

Keld has been made famous by popular walks including the Coast to Coast walk, Pennine Way and Herriot Way as well as several other beautiful long distance and local walks. Butt House has provided bed and breakfast accommodation for over twenty years and was formally run by Doreen and Ernest Whitehead, both of whom still live in the village where they still produce the Coast to Coast accommodation guide. This was originally printed after Doreen found, in their early days of guest house running, that there was no publication to inform walkers on the various accommodations provided on Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk.

Tony and Linda pride themselves on warmly welcoming travellers after a long days trekking, and provide drying and laundry facilities, packed lunches, home cooked food and a fully licensed bar.

Linda is a fully qualified chef who has become well known for her ‘Curried Banana’ soup and can cater for any dietary requirements.
