Located on the outskirts of the Lake District National Park, Greystoke has a village green with an ancient Market Cross dating back to the early 1600's.
The village is a fascinating mix of historical and modern attractions and includes: 17th century stone houses and cottages with slate roofs and cobbled forecourts a Sanctuary Stone - which relates to the time when fugitives from justice were granted santuary upon reaching the Church.

17th century stone houses and cottages with slate roofs and cobbled forecourts an imposing Church, which dates back to the mid-1200s and has a massive tower that still houses 15th century bells a Sanctuary Stone - which relates to the time when fugitives from justice were granted santuary upon reaching the Church a Plague Stone - where plague victims left coins in its hollowed-out top, which was filled with vinegar to protect the healthy people, who then left food for the sick an Elizabethan style Castle (not open to the public) which stands in a great wooded park of 6000 acres three folly farmholds and a number of pele towers a professional horse-racing stable owned by Nicky Richards, a descendant of Sir Gordon Richards.
Greystoke's name means "place by the River Creik" but more noticeable is the River Petteril which flows through the village, close to the Church.
