Things To Do in Sawley
If you are a sucker for authentic country pubs, your first stop will likely be the award-winning Sawley Arms. With open fires in winter and a stunning beer garden for the warmer months, this dog-friendly establishment serves good pub grub that includes gluten-free and vegan options.
Ripon, the “small city with a big heart”, is only four miles away and a visit to its splendid cathedral is a must. It is one of the oldest in the country, with its beginnings going back to 672AD when St Wilfrid commissioned French and Italian craftsmen to create this jewel in Yorkshire’s crown. While you are there, go and see the Ripon Walled Garden, a working kitchen plot that has a nursery, orchard and woodland with a bird hide. This is a perfect place to stock up on jams and chutneys made from the orchard fruit, as well as honey produced by the hives on site.
Nidderdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is almost so close you can touch it. If you are a keen cyclist and walker, then this part of Yorkshire won’t be missing off your go-to list. It is a cyclist’s heaven from mountain biking over Dallowgill Moor to a challenging 40-mile loop route; there is something for everyone who is into pedal power.
When in Nidderdale, visit one of the Dales’ quaintest villages, Pateley Bridge, with its fascinating museum in the old workhouse and its sweet shop that is in the Guinness Book of Records for being the oldest of its kind in the world.
Time spent at The Green offers up the best the Dales has to give from cycling to sightseeing; it is a good base to discover the delights of this slice of Yorkshire.
This Yorkshire stone cottage benefits from a central village location, so there is no fear of schlepping too far if you have forgotten anything. The interior is in keeping with the home’s heritage. The sitting room still has its original fireplace where you and your family or friends can cosy up after an invigorating day out. There is always the nearby pub to head to sample some tremendous British ales and soak up the sun in the beer garden.
Even though The Green is a traditional as it gets, it has all the modern conveniences that will provide a stress-free stay. The eat-in kitchen is equipped for excellent home-cooked meals, so visit one of the many farm shops in the area and stock up on local produce to give your dishes a great Yorkshire twist.
