About the local area

The village of West Burton is very well served and boasts its own village store, butchers, reputable pub and even its own pottery. There are wonderful walks from the doorstep of Waterfall Cottage leading up the river banks beside the waterfall, and out into the stunning Wensleydale countryside beyond. The popular dales market town of Leyburn is just six miles away, and offers a good mix of tearooms, restaurants, delicatessen, interior shops, convenience stores and a popular market which fills the cobbled market square on a Friday.
Travel ten miles west of West Burton and you will arrive in the traditional town of Hawes with its pretty cobbled streets and friendly shops selling local produce and handicrafts in abundance. Hawes is the home of Wensleydale Cheese, and was the inspiration for the Wallace and Gromit films. The cheese is produced at Wensleydale Creamery which has its own visitor centre and very reputable tearooms which come highly recommended. Visitors to the Creamery will be able to sample this local delicacy, and learn how it is produced.
The Wensleydale countryside that surrounds West Burton is a haven for walkers and cyclists, and there are many historic features in the area including the well preserved castles at Castle Bolton and Middleham which are both open to the public. Middleham Castle was once home to Richard III, and Mary Queen of Scots was held at Castle Bolton for six weeks.
There are many other tourist attractions in the area including Aysgarth Falls, and the well reputed mysterious gardens of The Forbidden Corner near Middleham where things certainly move in mysterious ways, and leave the mind wondering! A great trip out for both children and adults alike. However you choose to spend your time in Wensleydale, you will always be greeted by a warm ’Yorkshire’ welcome which is sure to leave a lasting impression.
