Need a Taxi?
Unfortunately due to our relatively remote location, there are a limited number of local taxi firms and prices could be considered high because of the distance of travel.
Here are a few potential contacts:
Harkers Buses (Reeth, Swaledale) - Tel. 01748 884533
Country Private Hire (Wensleydale) - Tel. 01969 667096
Ellis Taxi (Hawes, Wensleydale) – Tel. 01969 667532
Mobile. 07877797831 (not always in signal)
James Peacock (Bainbridge, Wensleydale) – Tel. 01969 650212 or 01969 650465

Peter Ellerton (Arkengarthdale) - Tel. 01748 884775
The bus from Reeth to Keld is now organised by the Little White Bus Company, and is driven mainly by unpaid volunteers after Richmondshire District Council decided that the public bus service wasn't cost-effective in Upper Swaledale, and therefore reduced the public service. Please remember to thank your upper Swaledale bus driver for giving up their time to keep our dales bus service running!
As of 21st March 2016, the new Summer timetable will be in operation.....
