Around and About

As winner of the 'Yorkshire in Bloom' award, the peaceful Dales village of Gilling West is an incredibly attractive place. Situated in lovely rolling countryside, this pretty, small town is just a few miles to the north of the popular market town of Richmond. With its Georgian Theatre and ruined medieval castle overlooking the River Swale, Richmond not only provides a wide range of amenities but also a number of exciting attractions. Gilling West itself boasts a lovely old church, two pubs - both of which serve excellent food - as well as a village shop and post office. With fishing available near by and a maze of footpaths and bridleways, this is an ideal location for those looking to explore the lovely countryside of Swaledale and Teesdale.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?
