Thornton le Dale is a historic market village with a traditional market cross and stocks on the village green popular with walkers and tourists. A stream runs through the village and you can admire a much-photographed thatched cottage – one of very few remaining in this part of North Yorkshire.

It’s a short walk along the woodland footpath from the village to Trench Pond – where the beck runs into. It’s also an excellent detour to the sleepy hamlet of Ellerburn 1.5 miles up the valley with its ancient Saxon Church. Don’t miss The Bridestones – an impressive sandstone outcrop situated along the scenic 9 mile Dalby Forest Drive.

If you are looking for something more active, Dalby Forest is a fantastic place for walking, cycling and nature watching. Try one of several off-road cycling routes for all different ages and abilities.

The National Park Information Point in the Wardill Bros. shop can help you discover what to do and see in the area and you can purchase an excellent guide to short walks from the village.
