Surroundings & Wildlife
It' s a great spot for wildlife lovers; with Roe deer & badger wandering the wood behind the grounds, Buzzards and Hawks and hundreds of native birds visiting the Brush & Boot gardens.
There's a network of great walks straight from the door. With a National Trail (Centenary way) running past the bottom of the drive, as well as the Yorkshire Moors, North Yorkshire Coast and Yorkshire Dales all within easy reach, Brush & Boot is an ideal place for any keen rambler.
The Brush & Boot sits atop a hill by a wood that lies between two castles in North Yorkshire, the dramatic ruins of King Richard III’s Sheriff Hutton Castle and the Baroque majesty of Castle Howard (famous as the location for the film and TV series Brideshead Revisited).
