Area Information


Carperby is located in the district of Richmondshire in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park.This linear village is midway between Hawes and Leyburn, in Wensleydale (famed for its cheese making). The village is also in close proximity to Aysgarth Falls, which are a spectacular triple flight of waterfalls on the River Ure, and Penhill Beacon which lies on the South side of the Dale. The seven stepped Carperby Cross in the village centre dates back to 1674 and suggests that there was once a market held in the village and the village was also the location for James Herriot and his bride's honeymoon who stayed at the local village pub, The Wheatsheaf. The village is in excellent countryside for walking with many interest sites just a short walk from the village, there are lime kilns nearby as well as a stone circle close to the village. Above the village you'll find the old stone quarries.
