Places to stay in Yorkshire Dales...

At the heart of Wensleydale lies the vibrant market town of Leyburn, the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales… This cobbled market town with a great mix of quaint and quirky shops and places to eat is also surrounded by some of Yorkshire’s most picturesque countryside with plenty of opportunities to get away from the everyday ordinary and enjoy some much-needed peace and solitude. Set amidst some of England’s finest walking and cycling country, spending a weekend in Leyburn is the perfect base for exploring, hiking, cycling and sightseeing before retiring at any of our five star places to stay in Yorkshire Dales with our cottages located nearby in Leyburn.

On route to your luxury holiday home in Leyburn, head to the award-winning Campbells of Leyburn to stock up with everything you could need for your Yorkshire weekend away, including a stash of wine and local meats for the BBQ which awaits you.

Explore the area...

Leyburn is an ideal base for exploring, hiking, cycling and sight-seeing for all ages. Find some varied walking routes and maps here…

Explore Middleham Castle, once the childhood home of Richard III, where you can relive the castle’s illustrious history and unlock the deeds of its great owners. Make sure you drive by Cauldron Falls on your way home, one of Yorkshire’s finest waterfalls with a great viewing spot to take the perfect Insta pic too. Pop in for dinner with the whole family at The Blue Lion or treat yourself to some romantic fine dining at The Wensleydale Heifer and enjoy their delicious award-winning seafood menu.

If you want to give your legs a rest and travel in style then why not hop on a train on the Wensleydale Railway, which is a heritage line using diesel locomotives with the occasional steam train running. This heritage line has a station in Leyburn and uses diesel locomotives with the occasional steam services running. Hop on board and take the scenic route to Redmire, where you will find Bolton Castle, one of the country’s best preserved 14th century medieval castles, with over 600 years of fascinating history to explore. Look out for the sword fighting demonstrations and falconry displays.

A Family Day Out...

If you have kids (big or small) you must explore the award-winning Forbidden Corner, a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises (make sure you’re wearing your waterproofs), created in 4 acres of countryside. This is a day out with a difference in Leyburn for brave adventurers and those young at heart. After exploring, head next door for more weird and wonderful at the Saddle Room restaurant. Once a racehorse stables, you can sit by a cosy fire or feel like you are at the races, whilst enjoying the fabulous menu of local food and ales.

This is a day out with a difference that will challenge and delight both parents and children alike! Please note that booking needs to be made ahead and is easily done online. You can book for the same day.
