Who we are

We are Jacqui & Chris and we purchased Butt House in May 2014 after working in logistics & manufacturing for many years. Chris loves cooking and creating his own recipes, whilst Jacqui loves hosting and ensuring that our guests feel at home and looked after.

We were both born in the Market town of Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, where we met in 1984 and married in 1990. We love walking in Swaledale with our Cavalier King Charles spaniel.

Owning Butt House is like a dream come true for both of us!

About Keld...

Keld is a small village in idyllic Upper Swaledale located at the crossing point of the Coast to Coast, Pennine Way, Herriot Way, Pennine Journey & Swale Way long distance walks.

Keld is half way on the 24 mile Swale Trail circular mountain cycle path.

Keld also has a tearoom, community orchard and heritage centre.

There are six spectacular waterfalls just five minutes walk from our guest house, with seating to enjoy picnics or just take in the views.

There are also numerous walks, including a hike to Tan Hill, the highest pub in Great Britain (4 miles) or to Ravenseat, home of the Yorkshire Shepherdess (2 miles)

Our particular favourite is the circular walk along the River Swale to Muker. We enjoy a pint and pub lunch in the Farmers Arms before walking back
