YDMT logo

From 01 April until 31 December 2014 for every online booking we recieve we will make a £1 donation to the Yorkshire Dales Millenium Trust ( The Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust supports the unique landscape, economy & community that is the Dales in many different ways. One way is to plant new trees indigenous to the area. Each new tree costs £15 & the YDMT has planted over 1 million trees since 1997.

The Countryman's Inn's donation is in memory of a dear friend, " HonouraryLocal" who stayed with us & enjoyed the Dales, but who sadley passed away earlier this year. Please refer to the TripAdvisor review by "Honouarylocal" dated 11 April 2010.

In our first monthly update we are pleased to report we raised enough mony for the YDMT to plant 2 new trees in the Dales. With your help lets hope we can plant at least 30 before the end of 2014 Diamond Jubillee Year!
