Views, views and more views! Sitting in a prime, elevated position deep in the fells of Grisedale, East House offers guests a true get away from it all experience. The house is without a TV, telephone or internet connection, a chance to escape modern life and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. With distant views of two of the three peaks – Ingleborough and Whernside, and set among the open moorland of Baugh Fell, Swarth Fell and Wild Boar Fell this former farmhouse is over 200 years old. Winding your way up to East House you leave the hustle and bustle behind. Walkers of all abilities will enjoy the open space which is available to explore from your doorstep. Likewise keen cyclists not deterred by steep terrain (East House is almost 1300ft above sea level) can take advantage of immediate access to this stunning and wild landscape.
East House offers guests comfortable home from home accommodation. A wood burning stove in the lounge lends itself to cosy evenings after a hard day exploring. Views from the bedrooms offer a delightful setting to wake up to. The popular market town of Hawes is only a 20 minute drive away where you can shop at the weekly market (every tuesday), visit the Wensleydale Creamery and visitors centre, the Ropeworks and the Dales Museum or enjoy the great selection of pubs, cafes and independent retailers in the town. Sedbergh, the popular ‘book town’ and Dent village with its delightful cobbled streets are again both an easy drive away. Garsdale Head station on the Settle Carlisle line is a convenient two and a half miles away. Visitors wishing to explore further afield might head west with the town of Kendal the gateway to the Lakes, just 45 minutes drive away.
