For getting out and about, there is a station on the Wensleydale Railway. The line runs for 16 miles and links the village with Leyburn and Leeming in the Vale of York, and is serviced by diesel and occasionally steam engines making several return trips daily.

Offering wholesome food and hand pulled ales, and being just a stones’ throw from the property, is it ideal should you fancy eating out. If you prefer an easy night in and ready prepared food, a takeaway service is provided. A welcome alternative that proves hugely popular is the once monthly mobile Thai kitchen, which parks up on the village green and cooks fantastic food.
