The town itself provides a good range of crafts, galleries, shops, restaurants and pubs and has become best known as the home to the Black Sheep Brewery – a company which makes over eleven million pints of beer every year. Through the idyllic surrounding scenery, visitors can enjoy a variety of walks along the Ure or across the hills and visit the popular towns of Ripon and Harrogate – both of which are just a short drive away.
