Things to do and see when staying at The Inn

The countryside surrounding The Inn at Brough is absolutely steeped in history and abounds in historic towns and villages, ancient monuments and museums.
There are masses of attractions and activities for the visitor within a half-hour drive of The Inn, often on deserted roads. Brough is ideal as a centre for walking, cycling and driving through the beautiful Eden Valley and its surrounding hills and fells and is within easy reach of the North York Moors, the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, the County Palatinate of Durham and Hadrian's Wall. The Eden Valley has a major advantage in not being crowded with tourists.
We have arranged the places to visit in order of distance from Brough. Rather than replicate other websites we offer a short introduction to each item and a link to their own website which you will find in the 'Contact' section.
