While staying with us this Autumn or Winter in luxury by the roaring fire with friends or family we highly recommend visiting the Yorkshire Dales when staying with us, as some of Englands most scenic views are just on your doorstep!
Reeth, surrounded by spectacular scenery is only 15-20 minutes drive from any of our holiday properties in Richmond and is a popular place with visitors to the Yorkshire Dales with many tea rooms to enjoy, perhaps after a stroll along the river, and interesting craft shops producing traditional, local products. It has a large village green where a market is held every Friday which should not be missed!
As you start to head up Dale, you’ll see a change in scenery from kerbstones to drystone walls, with spotting the odd sheep crossing the road, we’ll let you finish the pun of why the sheep crossed the road…
Pop in and visit the Folk Museum to find out about the history of the lead mining industry, in which Reeth was the capital in the 18th century (in its heyday Reeth was producing over 10% of the country’s lead)
If you're a lover of country walks...
From soft grass walks or jumping in puddles there are many varied walks to be found around Reeth, from dogs on leads to gentle strolls over the Swing Bridge and along the River Swale, to day-long routes to take in all the scenic views!
Feeling more energetic? Why not take on the summits of Great Shunner Fell, Lovely Seat and Addlebrough from fell running or group hiking are you up for the challenge?
On your way home, make sure you pop in to the CB Inn for some award winning pub grub, a local ale and a proper Yorkshire welcome! The changing menu offers local produce ranging from a hearty lunch of Beef steak & red wine casserole washed down with a pint of Black Sheep Yorkshire Bitter, delivered straight from the Brewery at Masham, or a more sophisticated evening meal of Supreme of guinea fowl with confit guinea fowl leg ballotine, sweet potato & cardamom puree with Madeira jus, complimented by a choice from the CB Inn wine list. Treat yourself…
