Area Information

This quaint little village in Swaledale used to be known for its lead mining however now it provides a tranquil and convenient base for touring the Yorkshire Dales National Park. If you're visiting the village be sure to talk a walk to Gunnerside Gill, a narrow, rocky gorge where signs of the village's industrial past can be seen. Walkers will be pleased with the village's convenient location on the Coast to Coast walk, with the local pub, The King's Head, making the perfect pitstop for refreshments during the day or meals on an evening. The popular market town of Leyburn is just 30 minutes away by car, where you'll find a fantastic range of shops, cafes and attractions to enjoy. 

Richmond is a leafy, vibrant market town boasting an impressive castle, a vast cobbled market place and an elegant Georgian district. It was formed by the Normans in 1071 and the town grew up around the castle which still dominates the skyline. It is said that the walls of the former imprisonment of King William are 11 feet thick and the exhibition centre within the grounds offers an impressive background into the history of this famous landmark.

Richmond is an exciting and vibrant place with plenty of quirky shops, art galleries and a good choice of pubs, restaurants and bars. Every Saturday there is a traditional outdoor market, joined by a popular farmers market once a month. The town is also the gateway to wonderful and unspoilt countryside, making it an ideal base for cycling, walking and other outdoor pursuits. The historic towns of York and Harrogate are also within easy reach.
