The Old School Muker

Barbara and Jon would like to welcome you to The Old School Muker,

The Old School has a unique history dating back to the 17th Century and  is situated in the honeypot village of Muker in Swaledale. The village is arguably the most popular tourist destination in the Dale, both for UK and foreign visitors. It is located on the Coast to Coast route and the Pennine Way and is supported by a good cross section businesses including a village shop, the famous Swaledale Wool Shop, and good traditional pub. The property is easily located by the infamous Rambo the Sheep on the roof – the star of many a TV programme!

On street parking is available, alternatively there is a  car park next to the bridge.

We stock a range of unique handmade original crafts which include jewellery, kiln formed glass, bronzes, cards and various object d’art. In the Gallery we stock prints, originals and photographs of Swaledale. The picturesque private walled garden is our ‘Jewel in Swaledale’ with stunning views of the Fells. It is open all year ( if you are brave enough) and is full of surprises.

Please come in, relax and enjoy the scenery with a cup of tea and a slice of  cake.
