The roaring fires, flag stone floors and oak panelling inside The Durham Ox have been greeting visitors for centuries.

Situated in the historic village of Crayke, fans of All Creatures Great and Small will be quick to note its Herriot country roots, but it’s also the perfect starting point for ambles around the Yorkshire Dales, with Castle Howard, York and many stately homes and gardens a short drive away. The pub is famed for its Sunday lunch, and fresh fish, a mouth-watering Yorkshire beef roast and vegetarian dishes are all on the menu.

Staying put? Five converted farm cottages and a comfortable studio suite upstairs make this an excellent wintry escape spot in a beautiful part of England.
