The Duke of Wellington Inn overlooks the village green in Danby and is thought by many to be the most attractive B&B in the North York Moors National Park.
A Brief History
Dating back beyond 1765 the Inn was formerly known as the Red Briar and later the Lord Wellington. It has grown over the centuries to encompass a small holding and cottages and was used as a recruiting post by local regiments during the Napoleonic War. A cast iron plaque of the famous first duke was unearthed during restoration work and can be seen above the fireplace in our main bar.
