Gayles is a picture postcard, tranquil village situated five miles north of Richmond in North Yorkshire, perfectly nestled between the two national parks of the Yorkshire Dales and the Yorkshire Moors. Nearby, the village of Ravensworth is made up of quaint, weathered sandstone cottages with unusual Yorkshire rooftops - a mix of soft red pantiles. There are many pretty walking trails leading through the surrounding villages, a wonderful way to uncover the delights of Yorkshire’s charming countryside. Spend the day in the market towns of Richmond and Barnard Castle, both boasting a delightful collection of shops and pubs, or discover the beautiful surrounding scenery on foot or by bike. Gayles is a wonderful base for exploring North Yorkshire, County Durham, the North York Moors and the Lake District, all year round.
