A little pub history

Situated in the small village of Hampsthwaite, within easy reach of several landmark towns, The Nelson Inn provides the perfect retreat following long days spent in the office or sight seeing. After visiting Ripley castle and gardens, Harrogate's spas or venturing into the outstanding scenery of the Yorkshire Dales, return to The Nelson in to eat, drink and relax in a friendly, traditional pub.

Make a day of it

The Nelson Inn is an essential stop for walkers on the Nidderdale Way, which can be accessed through the car park. Dating to 1853 our pub is easily mistaken for one of the local stone farmhouses.
