West Burton is considered to be one of the most beautiful villages in the Yorkshire Dales National Park with a large village green and no through road.

Also within the village is the West Burton Cauldron Falls one of the waterfalls drawn by Turner during his tour of the North of England.

West Burton has a real sense of community, with a village shop/tearoom, pub and family run butcher's shop.

There is also plenty for the visitor to see and do. As well as The Old Smithy Antiques there is Moorside Design Cat Pottery and country shop/weaver's studio, Fabric of the Field.

A wide variety of different types of accommodation is available to rent both in the village and the surrounding area.
