Northern England region

The Yorkshire Dales is home to over 1,500 square kilometres of the renowned Yorkshire Dales National Park, which is characterised by its unspoilt Dales villages, patchwork of dry stone walls and stunning fells and dales countryside. Visitors are able to travel for miles along quiet country roads, surrounded by magnificent views in every direction; an area dotted with ancient farming communities and rural villages which is typical of this region. This area is perfect for a truly relaxing holiday away from all the stresses and strains of day to day life, where you rediscover a gentler pace of life. It's also great for enjoying a whole host of outdoor pursuits including some of the very best walks in the UK.


Hornby is a hamlet nestled between the market towns of Bedale and Leyburn on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. Whilst the hamlet does not have a shop or pub, nearby Hackforth around a mile away accessed through the estate of Hornby Castle caters for your needs. The location is ideal for those wishing to explore Wensleydale with the wide variety of footpath walks and trails the National Park has to offer only a short drive away. Leyburn is a bustling market town with Friday market in the centre, and a wide variety of good pubs, restaurants and shops. For those with an interest in historic buildings, the ruins of Middleham Castle, Castle Bolton and Richmond Castle are worth a visit. An ideal base for discovering the Yorkshire Dales and beyond.
