East House description

Views, views and more views! Sitting at nearly 1,300ft above sea level, East House, a former farmhouse, over 200 years old, has no TV, telephone or internet connection. It offers comfortable accommodation and an escape from modern life. Grisedale is rich in wildlife; the sound of curlews returning in the spring is unforgettable. So is the completely dark skies. As you wind your way up to the house, Ingleborough and Whernside, two of the three Yorkshire Peaks, come into view.

Grisedale feels like a very remote place but is only 10 minutes from Garsdale Station, on the Leeds-Settle-Carlisle line. Leeds has Victorian shopping arcades and Grand Theatre, home to Opera North and the Northern ballet. The border city of Carlisle has its castle and cathedral.

Walkers can explore Baugh Fell, Swarth Fell and Wild Boar Fell from the doorstep. The Pennine Way and the Dales Way pass nearby. Cyclists can enjoy the quiet roads, and the route through the Dales taken by the 2014 Tour De France. The lively town of Hawes, with its Tuesday market, the Wensleydale Creamery, the Ropeworks and the Dales Museum, has long established shops, cafes and pubs.

Sedbergh, the popular ’book town’, and Dent, with its cobbles streets, Meditation Centre and Heritage Museum, are each 30 minutes away. To the north is Kirkby Stephen, a Westmorland town of red sandstone on the edge of the Eden Valley, where there are attractive ancient villages to discover.Shop and restaurant 7 miles, pub 2½ miles.
