About the neighbourhood
We are equally distant from the market towns of Leyburn, Richmond, Hawes and Barnard Castle with their quaint shops, castles and local food outlets. Within a 12 mile radius you can be at Tan Hill, England's Highest pub, Hardraw Force, England's highest waterfall. Close by you'll find the deserted abbeys of Jervaulx, Fountains, Rievaulx and Easby.
Getting around
We're in a quiet rural location but are fortunate to have an excellent community transport network. The Little White Bus runs a shuttle service up and down the Dale:- an excellent way to head upstream to the village of Keld and walk back down the valley, following England's fastest flowing river, as it tumbles it's way through amazing scenery and past quaint villages and hamlets. Stop off for lunch or refreshments at the village pub in Muker or Gunnerside.
