Lealholm Village


Lealholm Village: Lealholm is a picturesque and quintessentially english country village, which can be traced back to the Domesday Book of 1086, then called Lelum. It's situated in the base of an incredible glacial valley surrounded by woodland, farmland and moors with the River Esk meandering through the centre and a beautiful bridge crossing next to the local pub, The board Inn, and the small village green where the ancient sport of quoits is still played by the locals in the summer. Sheep graze throughout the village and ducks play and swim on the river and next on the banks. Pretty stepping stones cross the river with the calming running water soothing away any troubles. It has a post office and garage, a little garden centre in what was someones garden, and a wonderful village shop to get all your necessities. There are two tea rooms, one by the banks of the Esk proving the perfect view, another with a pretty gift shop for your gift shopping needs. The village even has a sugar palace of a bakery. These are but a few of the treats in store for you. Car Parking is in the village and has lots space, with only a very short walk to both the Board Inn and the Ley Hall.
