Once you have settled in to the Little Barn its time to decide what you might do during you stay, why not leave your car behind and take a bracing walk
directly across from the barn over stunning moorland to the pretty dales town of Reeth. Here you will find the large village green surrounded by a
variety of shops, pubs cafe . Tucked away down a quirky side street is the interesting Swaledale Museum – well worth a look.
You will be spoilt for choice for other walks around Swaledale and Arkengarthdale, most have a good pub en route, our favourite is the Charles
Bathurst Inn or CB as it is locally known. With roaring logs fires and locally sourced food, its perfect after a days walking.
Of course Cycling has a great place in the hearts of Yorkshire people, even more so after the Tour de France 2014. If you fancy trying some of those
famous hill climbs then the Buttertubs Pass is not far away. For any repair or bike related purchases, the Dales Bike Centre is just a few miles away, even
if you don’t have a bike we can highly recommend their cakes.
For a morning coffee there are plenty of pretty market towns to chose from, Bedale, Leyburn and Northallerton are all well worth a visit. One of Yorkshire
famous cafes – Bettys can be found in Northallerton, the queues here can be shorter than the Harrogate branch!
If you fancy travelling a little further the traditional town of Masham is a great was to spend a day, go on market day or try out the beer at the Black Sheep
Brewery or buy some famous Masham sausages. Nearby is the delightful Hackfall Woods a rediscovered landscape full of follies which are now listed
Wensleydale creamery in Hawes is famous for its collaboration with Wallace and Gromit, and their tasty Wensleydale Cheese, they have an amazing
variety of flavours which you can try before you buy and even watch the cheese being made in their brand new visitor centre.
In the opposite direction is The Bowes Museum which is a stunning building set on the outskirts of Barnard Castle, famous for its Silver Swan and holds
various exhibitions throughout the year. If you need any supplies while you are out this way call at Mainsgill Farm Shop or Cross Lanes Organic Farm try
their homemade pizzas cooked in a traditional clay oven.
