Festival on the Moor's May Festival 2014
returns to the beautiful village of Botton in Danby Dale

Botton Village nestles in Danby Dale in the Esk Valley. It’s one of the most magical and stunning places in the North York Moors National Park and is an oasis of calm and beauty. Home to the oldest Camphill Community, it’s also a vibrant working village with several farms and other workshops including artisan bakery and cheesemaker, candlemaking, a weavery and a dollshop. There’s also a store selling homemade and organic products, a coffee bar and a giftshop.
