The North Yorkshire town of Leyburn is adored by locals and visitors alike for its quaint atmosphere and rich countryside heritage. Local events, inspiring sceneries and serene walking paths make Leyburn a wonderful destination for hot tub breaks.
There are a number of castles in the surrounding area that date back to the 12th century. Middleham Castle and Bolton Castle are two of the best-preserved castles from medieval times. The history of these sites is tangible as you walk through the castles and view the furniture and décor from the times of Mary, Queen of Scots. The views from the castles are stunning, you can admire not just the lush vegetation but also free-roaming animals, such as wild boars and birds of prey.
For an afternoon of walking, you could follow the path along the limestone escarpment of Leyburn Shawl. The Forbidden Corner with themed gardens and labyrinths, and the majestic Harmby Waterfall covered by trees along the side of the road, are well worth visiting. These sites are hidden in the nearby natural surroundings and offer hours of exploring the heritage of the countryside for the whole family.
