About the local area

Thornton Steward is in a rural location almost equidistant from the bustling towns of Bedale and Leyburn, and is the ideal spot to base yourself whilst exploring the Yorkshire Dales. The National Park is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts with miles of stunning moorland, hills and trails to enjoy. The Dales also offer some of the best mountain biking opportunities in the country with around 900km of byways, bridleways and trails to discover. For the kids, nearby Flamingo Land and zoo are a fantastic family day out, with rides to suit any age, not to mention an abundance of pink flamingos! There is horse riding available in nearby Masham, and around a mile away is Thornton Steward Reservoir offering fishing between March and November, and ideal for an evening stroll. Bedale and Leyburn are a short drive away with shops, pubs and restaurants, and the larger town of Ripon with cathedral is worthy of a visit.
