A Warm Yorkshire Welcome!

Surrounded by the splendor of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and nestled in the heart of iconic Wensleydale the historic 18th century Blue Lion Inn encapsulates the finest elements of traditional rural England.

After rumbling across the original cobbled driveway enter the Inn and relax in our homely surroundings. Warm up beside our roaring log fires in one of North Yorkshire’s most iconic pubs before collecting your cricket ball key to one of our exquisite bedrooms. If a shorter visit is more for you then unwind with a newspaper from the traditional hangers by the door with a sumptuous meal from the chalked up menu boards.
