West Burton, acclaimed by many to be one of the most beautiful villages in England, rests snugly in a deep sheltered valley at the juncture of Walden Dale, Bishopdale and Wensleydale. Nearby, high fell sides rise steeply to form a spectacular setting to this most picturesque of dales villages, and on climbing can give unrivalled panoramas of the surrounding dales and distant views of the Vale of York and North York Moors.
Walden Beck skirts the village and descends over rocky outcrops in a spectacular waterfall with deep pools and minor cascades held in a tree lined gorge to form a natural arena of beauty and relaxation.
The village surrounds an expansive green centred by an ancient market cross and, because of its position away from the main traffic routes, still offers traditional rural tranquillity. This is particularly true of the green where, here and there, small bench seats prompt social rendezvous and easy conversation.
It is served by a bus route and is ideally placed as a base for exploration of the dales and fells whether on foot or by car. There is no need, however, to travel for the basics in life as West Burton contains a pub, butchers shop and general store/tearoom.
