The Palins is located near Constable Burton between the market towns of Bedale and Leyburn. The village itself is very pretty; a small village green, a babbling beck, the local village Inn The Wyvill Arms. The walk to the village from the cottage is a pleasant ten minute stroll.
Beyond the village the handsome town of Bedale is worth a visit. Stop for a coffee before making your way around the towns antique shops. In the opposite direction you'll find the charming market town of Leyburn. Leyburn is an archetypical slice of Dales market town life.
