A short guide to Chantry

The historic village of West Witton is only a short walk away from Chantry, with a selection of charming shops, restaurants and pubs. Bedale is also nearby, a bustling Yorkshire market town with cobbled streets and Georgian architecture. A great way of discovering more of the town is to follow the ‘Heritage Trail’, a pleasant walk around the historical points of interest, and learn about the town's colourful past.

Leyburn, a little further afield, is brimming with family-owned, independent shops which have been around as long as the town, and alongside its weekly, country and farmers markets you’ll never be short of things to do and see in this little piece of the Yorkshire Dales. What’s better it’s only a few miles from the park!

A short drive away from the park you will find the historic and attractive town of Masham, known for its largest market square in Yorkshire and its trademark Black Sheep Brewery. Middleham has been another popular scenic town to visit, often described as ‘the jewel in the crown of Wensleydale’ and home to the stunning ruins of Middleham Castle.

The tranquil surroundings and rolling countryside of Wensleydale offers something for all walks of life, from young families, right through to couples enjoying their retirement. Chantry is the ideal choice to get away from the daily grind and enjoy the Yorkshire Dales at its best.
