Whether you want to escape from the World,
explore the Tea Room capital of the North or enjoy
fabulous fun filled family adventures there's no
shortage of things to do in North Yorkshire! Yorkshire
is friendly and relaxing, and full of simple pleasures,
nostalgic delights and great value indulgence! Why not
explore the beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors
National Park, either by car, on foot, on horseback or
See the Sea! The East Coast is full of the
sights, sounds and flavours of smugglers, fishing,
boats and boat trips, sports, birds and fossils! (Did
you know that Whitby Jet is actually fossilised Monkey
Puzzle Tree and that you can explore the beach and find
your very own piece?) Scarborough, Whitby and Filey are
all well worth a visit, as are many of the smaller
'undiscovered' Yorkshire Coast towns. The East Coast
has a seaside town that will suit absolutely everyone.
There are more Castles than you can shake a bow
and arrow at! Scarborough, Conisborough, Helmsley,
Pickering, Middleham and Richmond all have Castles to
explore, to say nothing of Whitby Abbey and Rievaulx
Abbey and loads of under-explored ancient villages and
houses in the region.
York- York is a great travel destination, and is
only a 15 minute train ride from The Old Lodge. It's
full of ancient history and charm, plus there are
dozens of Restaurants and hundreds of great shops to
explore. There are many year round events to enjoy too.
Why not go for a River Boat ride, or even a 'Medieval
Makeover' at Clifford's Tower and become a Lord, Lady,
Peasant or Peddlar for a while?
Of course the Minster is one of York's most ancient and
beautiful sights and should not be missed.
Castle Howard, Yorkshire Lavender, Eden Camp,
Sledmere and Flamingo Land are all well within an easy
(15 minutes or less) drive, as are the beautiful towns
of Pickering and Helmsley. There's enormous pleasure to
be had from simply driving through the region- you'll
stumble upon countless pretty sights and villages, each
with their own individual things to offer. There are
many lovely Golf courses within an easy drive of the
Lodge. Check out our Golf break offer on our offers
York, Wetherby, Ripon and Thirsk racecourses
offer a great day out for both the young and old alike!
In addition to the North York Moors Railway there is a
super local rail and bus network- the station's a five
minute stroll from us, and York is just 15 minutes on
the train, avoiding all those traffic and Car Park
hassles. Why not try 'The Coastie'? It's really called
'The Coastliner' and is a regular dedicated bus from
the Coast to Malton that runs all day and well into the
night and is very popular with locals.
