Bedale 3 miles; Middleham 7 miles.
The small and pretty village of Newton-le-Willows is situated just 3 miles from the market town of Bedale with its open air market (Tuesdays) and wealth of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. There is an abundance of hostelries within easy reach - many by a stream or mill pond where you can enjoy a pleasant meal or a drink. The village once came under the jurisdiction of Jervaulx Abbey, the ruins of which are only 10 minutes' drive away. Gardeners will enjoy the Thorp Perrow Arboretum and the gardens at Constable Burton - and don't miss the weird and wonderful "Forbidden Corner" near Middleham! Ideally placed for exploring all of Wensleydale, Swaledale and Wharfedale, and the city of York is less than an hour away.

The owners were very friendly but not intrusive. They were helpful in any way they could be, if we needed it. The property was beautiful, very comfortable. The September evenings were chilly outside but we were very warm and cosy inside.
