The village itself offers a small store and a pub. Local attractions include Fountains Abbey, Ripley Castle, Mother Shiptons Cave and the amazing rock formations of Brimham Rocks.

This was such a comfortable, cosy cottage, with wonderful views, and in a great location for Ripon, Harrogate and nearby attractions. We saw red kites, hares, deer and the first swallows of the season. Highly recommended.
