The famous ruined castle, founded as a simple moat-and-bailey structure in the 12th century, is less than half a mile away, where fantastic views stretch across Wensleydale.
The nearby villages of West Witton and East Witton boast award-winning gastropubs and both are well worth a visit.
Explore nearby Bolton Castle, visit the famous Aysgarth Falls or take a ride on the Wensleydale Railway.
