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:

About 18 miles from The Inn at Brough the beautiful ruins of Egglestone Abbey lie 1 mile south of Barnard Castle, on a minor road off the B6277. The abbey of St Mary and St John the Baptist was founded between 1195 and 1198 for Premonstratensian canons by the de Moulton family, whose title passed to the Dacres by marriage in 1314. The endowment of Egglestone was so small that early in the 13th century the status of the abbey was nearly reduced to that of a priory. It remained an abbey, but poverty beset the canons throughout their history. They suffered particularly when the Scots ravaged Yorkshire in 1315 and at other times of war, receiving frequent remissions of taxes to maintain them.
