Attractions and nearby amenities
Easy to reach by road and rail - it is 4 miles from the A1 and 10 miles from the East Coast mainline railway. Within 8 miles are the market towns of Leyburn, Bedale, Richmond and Masham - all with local produce shops, cafes and high class restaurants. There are castles at Richmond, Bolton and Middleham, historic sites at Jervaulx and Fountains Abbey, many beautiful country houses with extensive gardens and an arboretum at Thorpe Perrow. Discover the Forbidden Corner, sample 'Black Sheep' and Theakstons real ales at source, taste creamy Brymore ice cream on the farm or see Wensleydale cheese made at Hawes. The geography of the area provides us with dramatic waterfalls at Aysgarth, walking opportunities both gentle or more challenging (climb Penhill) and the range of beautiful dales - Wensleydale, Swaledale and Coverdale amongst others. Perhaps take an hour's ride to York, the spa town of Harrogate or the coast at Whitby and the North Yorkshire Moors. For sports enthusiasts there are fishing lakes, golf courses, sailing lakes, cycle routes or the racehorses exercising at Middleham with Ripon, Catterick and Thirsk racecourses close by. Or why not just stay at East Lodge with the wood burner, enjoying the stunning panoramic views from this spacious barn conversion, or relaxing in the garden or sheltered courtyard. Then wander through the meadows to the stream and woodland and enjoy the extensive wildlife - curlews, tufted ducks, rabbits, hares - and of course, the sheep...whilst dinner simmers in the Aga.!
