Set in stunning countryside on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Elmet Farmhouse is a great place for outdoor activities all year round. So if it’s walking, cycling or horse-riding you’re into – or if you simply want to experience the spectacular scenery and wildlife that Yorkshire has to offer – Elmet Farmhouse provides the perfect ‘base camp’.

The village green is dominated by the magnificent Grade II* Listed Fountaine’s Hospital: a group of alms houses with a chapel in the centre. Built in the 1720s, the architect is believed to be Sir John Vanbrugh (who designed Castle Howard) or his associate Nicholas Hawksmoor.
