GRAND DEPARTE OF
THE TOUR DE FRANCE
5TH JULY 2014
It promises to be an exciting year in West Burton with the biggest event ever to happen to the village.
Unbelievably, on July 5th, Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and all the other World famous cyclists will ride past us on their way from Leeds to Harrogate for the Grande departe of the Tour de France. The race is the third biggest sporting event in the world, surpassed only by the World Cup and the Olympic Games.
Our celebrations will include an open air party on the village green on the Saturday evening complete with a live band, outdoor bar, real ale festival and BBQ.
ACCOMMODATION FOR THE WEEKEND
Our rooms have long been booked up, but if you would like to come and pitch a tent we can arrange this for you in a field close to the centre of the village, just a couple of minutes walk from the course and ideal for coming to the party on the green on the Saturday night. The field will have running water, toilet facilities and there is just a £20 per tent charge for the weekend. Just give us a call and we can take your booking, on behalf of the landowner, over the phone.

The Fox & Hounds is a family run pub welcoming well behaved children and pets. We serve morning coffee and afternoon teas as well as lunches and evening meals from our extensive Bar Menu...and we are in the most perfect location!
West Burton is one of the most beautiful and peaceful villages in the whole of the Yorkshire Dales, with its traditional stone built cottages bordering the vast village green where children can safely play on the swings whilst the adults enjoy a relaxing drink at The Fox & Hounds Inn and take in the fantastic views.
The village has its own hidden waterfalls which are surely one of the most popular subjects for photographers coming to Wensleydale (see photo on the right) and in summer provide the most perfect swimming pool for locals and holidaymakers alike.
To the locals, The Fox & Hounds Inn is, essentially, their local pub at the centre of their community and where they come to relax after a hard day’s work. Visitors, too, appreciate our good selection of hand pulled ales and are pleased to note that The Fox & Hounds is included in:-
