Out and About in Yorkshire
Eating Out Close By
We are very lucky to have a great choice of places to eat and drink close by. We have two fantastic pubs in the village the Craven Arms Pub a snug 16th century pub-restaurant famous for the tv series ‘ Yorkshires Favourite Pint’ and The New Inn serving home cooked food and real ales. A short drive away is The Red Lion at Burnsall and The Fountaine at Linton, both highly recommended.
Things To Do
The Yorkshire Dales is a fabulous place to go walking whether you are looking for a gentle riverside stroll or a hike on a wild and empty moorland. See http://where2walk.co.uk/ and http://www.yorkshiredales.org/
With over 500 miles of bridleways, byways and green lanes to explore, it's no wonder The Yorkshire Dales is one of the most popular places in England for mountain biking. Check out http://www.cyclethedales.org.uk/ for lots of helpful information and cycle routes.
