Dated back to 1555, The Fox & Hounds is a traditional village Inn and Restaurant set in the heart of the North York Moors National Park. With incredible views across Danby Dale and the Esk Valley, the Fox & Hounds makes the ideal host for your visit to one of the UK’s most stunning National Parks. Offering tasty food, good beer and cosy rooms, we pride ourselves in giving a warm and friendly Yorkshire welcome.

​We have 7 comfortable en-suite bedrooms with views across the surrounding countryside, and an adjoining self-contained traditional stone cottage, which sleeps 7.

The Fox & Hounds has been awarded a Visit England Quality in Tourism rating of Four Stars for our standards of hospitality, accommodation and service.


Being situated in the heart of the National Park we are dog friendly and close to both the Cleveland Way and Coast-to-Coast walking trails, and only a short drive away from the coastal towns of Whitby, Staithes, Saltburn and Runswick Bay.


Our licensed bar provides a range of traditional cask conditioned beers and selected quality wines. We work with local farms and suppliers to provide freshly prepared food, served every lunchtime and evening.
