The popular Wensleydale town of Leyburn can also be found within a short drive, offering a choice of tea rooms, quaint gift shops and convenience stores, and provides the entrance to the stunning Wensleydale countryside, with its green rolling hills and dry stone walls providing shelter for the thousands of iconic Yorkshire sheep that graze on the hillsides.

About the location

WEST WITTON

Middleham 6 miles; Leyburn 4 miles; Hawes 13 miles.

The pretty and ancient Wensleydale village of West Witton is situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, between Leyburn and Hawes. A traditional old village made up of stone-built cottages and farmhouses, West Witton enjoys dramatic views of Penhill and its limestone scars, along with Bolton Castle, lush rolling countryside and the surrounding fells. The village boasts two pubs, one of which is a gourmet pub and has been awarded the Wensleydale Heifer 2006/07 AA 'England's best seafood pub' award, as well as a well stocked village shop and a pretty green. Across the valley from the village stand the imposing ruins of Castle Bolton, while Leyburn, with its wide range of amenities and weekly market, Middleham, with its Norman Castle, famous racing stables and pretty old market square surrounded by delightful shops, pubs and restaurants, and the picturesque Aysgarth Falls, are just a short drive away. A superb base for a walking holiday, for enjoying the delights of Wensleydale or for touring the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors or the Lake District.
