Individual Inns

We were going to write a blog post for November about Bonfire Night events in Linton in Craven and the Grassington, Conistone & Malham areas but as we come to post this, local events are either cancelled or in a state of hiatus.  Keep an eye on our Facebook page and we’ll keep you updated as we find the latest on these.

Instead, and given the current situation, we thought we’d highlight a few days out and activities, available around the Fountaine Inn over the winter period. Many can be done as small groups, some are more suited to individuals; all can be enhanced by starting, finishing or including within them a little light refreshment… obviously.

For example, in our October post, we talked about how we welcome dogs and highlighted a few dog friendly walks in the area. If that’s you, then you can still read that article, do the walk and bring your pooch for some post perambulation pampering.

However, as the nights get longer and the days cooler, we thought we’d highlight a few of our favourite winter activities and some that our regular visitors like to do when they visit the Fountaine Inn too.

Things to do in Linton in Craven throughout winter

There is loads to do for the active and those looking for a little R&R.  Take a day and explore Bolton Abbey, which is open throughout the year with indoor options if the weather is poor.  In a similar vein but on a different scale the Grassington Folk Museum is worth a visit.

If you’re a road cyclist, a quick look at Strava’s heat maps shows Wharfdale and the surrounding area is a real mecca.  For you lot, do feel free to pop in for tea and medals if it’s cold & wet, we’re open every day with warming fires when it’s cold.

Last but not least, walking the Yorkshire Dales in winter can be a truly spectacular experience and we’re a great base for that.  Here’s a link to a few of the best walks around the area.

So, there you go. If you’re lucky enough to find a Halloween or Bonfire Night party near Linton in Craven, to kick off the early part of the festive season, we’ll be here if you’d like to book a table and make night of it.

If however, the current situation precludes that, then perhaps you’ll think of us and pop in when you’re enjoying the great outdoors and the best that winter has to offer in Wharfdale.
