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.
The following website links are also always worth visiting when planning a holiday:

Brough stands on the old Stainway which was used from prehistoric times as one of the few passable East to West routes across the Pennines. As a consequence many of the hamlets, villages and towns along its path were fortified by the original inhabitants and then by the Romans, the Normans and later the English. The remains of these fortifications are open in most cases to visitors and represent an amazing history of the area. The castle was owned in the 17th century by Lady Anne Clifford, an amazing lady (see the history pages on our site) for whom our top luxury suite is named.

Located just over the A66 from The Inn, in the old parish of Church Brough, this ancient monument is well worth a visit. The English Heritage website (links below) has a full history and plan of the Castle and a conjectured plan of the Roman Fort. The photograph shows a view of the keep, looking west. The remains visible today were built in about 1200, after the original keep was set on fire by William I of Scotland
