Ideally located in the Eden Valley between three stunning national parks, the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District and the Forest of Bowland, Crosby Ravensworth will delight walkers and visitors alike. The village is crossed by the coast to coast walk and the large limestone pavement close is well worth a visit if you're staying in the village. There are 90 sites of prehistoric settlements in the surrounding area including the white hag stone circle. The nearest market town to the village is Appleby in Westmorland where you will find a variety of shops and amenities. The village itself is served by the local pub, The Butchers Arms, which is owned by the local community.
