The birthplace of pioneer wildlife photographers, Twaite is surrounded by the typical Dales landscape of stone walls and barns. It is not on the original Wainwright Coast to Coast route but is reached either by quiet country road (2 miles) or by following a particularly scenic stretch of the Pennine Way footpath for 3 miles. Like Keld it has no pub, shop or church, but there is a comfortable guesthouse with its own restaurant, as well as farmhouse accommodation. To re-join the Wainwright route to Reeth it is a very pleasant walk across the fields to the village of Muker, and then along the banks of the Swale.
