Area Information

Ideally positioned for touring the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Crakehall is a small village situated just 2 miles from the market town of Bedale and 8 miles from bustling Northallerton. The village is split into two parts, Little Crakehall and Great Crakehall and sits alongside the Bedale Beck where you'll find a 17th century corn mill, once owned by the Neville Family of Middleham Castle. The mill has recently been restored after being derelict since 1930 and is now open to the public during the summer months. The south of the village is passed by the Northallerton to Hawes line of the North Eastern Railway, with the Wensleydale Railway also using the same track. Within the village there is one pub, The Bay Horse, which serves food, a mobile post office and the historic Crakehall Hall a Grade II listed building dating back to 1732.
