Our Community

Burnsall parish serves the thriving villages and hamlets of Appletreewick, Burnsall, Hartlington, Skyeholme and Thorpe. This section is a brief introduction to the communiites, do find out more by visiting us in person. 

All the villages offer excellent Bed & Breakfast and holiday cottage accommodation.

Appletreewick also has a Village Hall and two pubs, the Craven Arms with Cruck Barn and The New Inn. If you fancy camping (or even glamping), try Mason's Campsite on the bank of the river.   

Burnsall is well known for its picturesque village green beside the bridge over the river Wharfe. It is home to Burnsall Primary School & Hebden Lodge NurseryBurnsall Village Hall and the parish church of St Wilfrid. The Red Lion and Devonshire Fell are renowned for their hospitality, but don't overook the delights of a bacon butty at the riverside kiosk or afternoon tea at the Tea Rooms on the green.  

Hartlington is a ribbon of cottages running from the bridge at Burnsall towards Appletreewick then left up the hill towards the Pateley Bridge Road. Bed and breakfast and holiday cottage accommodation is available at Raikes Acre.

Skyreholme is best known for Parcevall Hall, a 16th century Dales longhouse now operated as a retreat centre by the Church of England Diocese of Leeds. The Hall is available to both church and secular groups. Other visitors are welcome to explore the gorgeous Parcevall Hall Gardens and refresh themselves at the Tea Room. There is a website for Skyreholme villlage with more information and photographs.

Thorpe is known as the hidden village of Wharfedale. It is tucked away in the hills between Burnsall, Rylstone and Linton. Bed and breakfast accommodation is available at Holly Tree Farm.
