Theakstons, Black Sheep, Copper Dragon, Richmond Brewery Company and Dent Brewery all offer day tours around their premises. Definitely worth checking out if you like your ale.

If the finer wines & spirits are more your tipple, then you can find The Wright Wine Company in Skipton, just 15 minutes from The Gamekeeper’s Inn. With more than 30 years’ experience stocking 1500 wines, over 1000 whiskies, 175 gins, 50 rums and over 500 other premium spirits, there will almost certainly be something here for you.

Moving onto the food. Most places around the UK and indeed the world offer some kind of generic food experience. However, in Yorkshire, they’re both different and better than you’ll find anywhere else. Just 5 minutes from The Gamekeeper’s Inn is a little place called Kilnsey Trout Farm. Here, you can catch and eat your own Trout. Once you’ve caught your fish you can either take it home and prepare it yourself or you can take it to the on-site fishmonger who will gut and fillet your fish how you like it. There is rainbow, blue, brown and golden trout as large as 20lb in the lake so if you fancy your hand at fishing for and preparing your own fish, you should check out Kilnsey Trout Farm.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so it makes sense that it should be the tastiest and most nutritious meal of the day too. Before you leave us, you should make time to visit Yockenthwaite Farm, which produces its own range of granola cereal. There are loads of types of granola here, some you wouldn’t even imagine. The farm was originally a Yorkshire sheep farm but they are now well known for their granola cereal. Ditch the sugary cereals at home and enjoy a delicious serving of local Yorkshire granola to start your day. It’s proper Yorkshire produce that you can take back home with you and it’s only a 25-minute drive through the national park from The Gamekeeper’s Inn!
