Overview & description

The Fox and Hounds is set amidst the beautiful North York Moors National Park and is located in the hamlet of Ainthorpe, which is situated between the villages of Castleton and Danby. Once a former 16th Century Coaching Inn, The Fox and Hounds is now a high quality residential country Inn and Restaurant.
The surrounding countryside is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The historic seaside town of Whitby famous for its Abbey and Dracula connections is 16 miles away and market town of Guisborough is 10 miles away. The nearby coast consisting of picturesque beaches such as Runswick Bay is a 10 minute drive. The neighbouring village of Danby can be walked to in around 10 minutes. The Moors National Park Centre is located in Danby.
The property consists of 7 en suite rooms that overlook the surrounding moorland and countryside. There is a general main bar area, pool room and dining area and then a beer garden to the side of the building. Whilst we aim to meet the needs of all of our guests there are some features of the property which might make access difficult for people with limited mobility.
We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance please phone 01287 660218 or email
