The village of Hetton is a great base to explore the surrounding Yorkshire Dales and nearby Niddlerdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Forest of Bowland. The city of York and the beautiful spa town Harrogate are close by and make for great days out with their mix of historic attractions and wonderful independent boutiques. The village itself has a pretty local pub which serves food and there is a small supermarket just 10 minutes drive away in the village of Gargrave.
For a fun day trip, why not visit Skipton Castle (5 miles away), Bolton Abbey (8 miles away) or Stump Cross Caverns (9 miles away)? For something a bit more quirky, visit the Ilkley Toy Museum (12 miles away) with its exhibits of dollhouses, teddy bears and lead figures dating back to 350BC.
