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.

One of them is shown above and along with many others can be found above Danby village and east of Rosedale Intake.

You can see the village of Castleton on the distant ridge.
