Ainthorpe, near Danby & Castleton, North Yorkshire, England: The Fox and Hounds Inn is a 'character' old pub (Ex coaching inn, est. 1555, maybe!) providing good food and has residential and restaurant facilities. Ainthorpe is quiet village on the road between Danby and Castleton set in the lovely countryside of Danby Dale in the North York Moors National park. The Fox and Hounds is on the lower edge of Danby Low Moor and good starting point for several circular walks in Danby Dale and Fryup Dale.

 

On the road between Danby/Ainthorpe and Castleton villages there is a wonderful owl sculpture carved out the long stump of a tree.

 

Just further along the road in the Castleton direction is an interesting bit of a 'natural sculpture' via split tree trunk!
