Bainbridge is a lovely village to visit if you are holidaying in the Yorkshire Dales. Located near the River Bain and the River Ure, Bainbridge was once a very important location in Roman times and consequently has roads leading out of it in several directions; the Roman road to the south can be followed past Stake Fell and onto the ridges which form the border of Wensleydale and Wharfedale. If you are staying in or near Bainbridge, there are many things locally to see and do. Bainbridge itself is very pretty with a lovely village green, medieval stocks, cafes, pubs and good accommodation. Hardrew Force - England's highest single drop waterfall at 100 feet - is a few miles down the road and well worth a visit to walk along the pretty trails. Also nearby is Bolton Castle, one of the best preserved castles in the country, and while there you can visit the Great Hall, Dungeons, the old nursery and Mary Queen of Scots bedroom among other things. And of course, the incredible Yorkshire Dales themselves are a stunning treasure trove of walks and trails marked by dry stone walls, picturesque hills and valleys, and a way of life that is slow-paced and wonderfully relaxing.
