Aysgarth is a sleepy little Yorkshire village not to be missed, only a short drive from Sun Hill Farmhouse and Lodge Barn, our luxury holiday properties located in Leyburn, North Yorkshire and half an hour from Richmond.
A mile or so east of Aysgarth village lies the famous Aysgarth Falls, an impress spot which sees the River Ure hurl itself over three massive rocky steps, the Upper, Middle and Lower Falls. The upper and middle fall was featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.
There are many woodland walking trails laid out for visitors with spectacular views along the way. Look out for any dormice, which are thriving in the woods too!
Find out more about the Falls at the National Park Centre which is next door to a delicious café, well known for its delicious home-made cakes!
If you wish to walk further, there are many walks through the woods to Carperby, West Burton and Castle Burton as well as riverside walks to Askrigg and Bainbrige. Finish your day exploring with a local ale in the Aysgarth Falls Hotel or if you fancy a treat reserve a table at the award-winning Wensleydale Heifer, which serves seafood in a Fish Bar for a less formal environment or a restaurant fit for any special occasion.
