Wensleydale Heifer is an inn located in West Witton. Few Inns can boast such an outstanding location as the Wensleydale Heifer Inn. Nestling in the picturesque village of West Witton in the heart of the Wensleydale and in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Untouched and unspoilt, this corner of Yorkshire offers a spectacular backdrop for the unrivalled enjoyment of fine country life including walking, trout fishing and bird watching.

When the Wensleydale Heifer Inn was built in 1631 it was ‘coaches and four’ that brought the traveller to the front door. Today its fabric remains unchanged but for the modern facilities of en suit bathrooms, and a comfortable residents lounge with soft armchairs, antiques and crackling log fire burning when necessary. Guests comforts are assured in the tastefully decorated , fully equipped bedrooms, each with own character.

Today, the heart of the old Inn is still in its kitchen. A wide range of dishes are available including a special selection for vegetarians. Menus change to reflect the seasons, with game from the moors, fish from Scotland and the East Coast, beef and lamb from the Dale, all supplemented by local vegetables. Puddings and real bread are baked daily, cask conditioned ales are pulled from the barrel and wines from around the world compliment the imaginative English cuisine. Meals are served in either the bar, the informal bistro or the beamed and candlelit restaurant.
