The Orchard offers the starting point for several beautiful walks from the doorstep, eg The Shawl with panoramic views of Wensleydale, and is on the Tour-de-France route with many other routes for cyclists. The orchard is in walking distance to a range of restaurants, pubs and cafes and even a local cinema.
Leyburn is in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, making the perfect base for exploring Wensleydale and Swaledale. This picturesque area of rolling dales and fells is a haven for walking and cycling, and is scattered with quaint towns and villages, offering a true taste of 'life in the Dales' famous for its James Herriot connections and quality local produce.
The area is steeped with history, with the cathedral cities of Ripon and York both within easy reach, and the spa town of Harrogate with its magnificent floral displays, and host to the famous 'Yorkshire Show' is well worth a visit.
For those who enjoy racing, there are courses at York, Ripon and Catterick which are all easily accessible. The area is also adorned with golf courses, and there are many other attractions within easy reach.
Other local attractions include;
The Station Cinema
The Georgian Theatre
The Loft & The Applery
An ideal base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales & Yorkshire National Park, tucked away in a quiet wooded area just five minutes walk from the centre of Leyburn.
