The area immediately surrounding Hutton Le Hole is known as Farndale, notable for its grouse moor where the wildlife lover can also spot Meadow Pippets, Golden Plover, Curlew and Lapwing. Low Mill, to the southern edge of the Moor is notable for its array of wild daffodils. Three 'Heritage Cycle Rides' starting out from Hutton le Hole meander through local villages, taking in viewpoints and various places of interest: free route leaflets can be obtained from the Ryedale Folk Museum.

The North York Moors became a National Park in 1952 and covers an area of 554 square miles, including 26 miles of coastline. With over 1,000 miles of Public rights of Way, the Park is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, including the 109 mile (176km) Cleveland Way National Trail. Historians can indulge in a choice of 700 Scheduled Monuments that lye within the North York Moors. Rievaulx Abbey near Helmsley is a must; take in the atmospheric abbey ruins, once the site of one of England's most powerful Cistercian monasteries, appropriately sited in beautifully tranquil valley

A short drive away is the bustling market town of Pickering where you will find a whole range of local amenities including a small supermarket and the start of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway where you can take a heritage ride to Whitby. A little further to the south, a visit to the larger town of Malton is a must.

If you enjoyed watching the Channel 5 TV series 'All Creatures Great and Small', then perhaps schedule a tour of Herriot Country, offering visitors some of the most beautiful scenery in the country as the North York Moors foothills give way to market towns such as Northallerton, Easingwold, Stokesley and of course Thirsk, where you can visit the rural locations where James Herriot worked as a vet and visit the 'World of James Herriot' attraction. Remember to take in the visitor centre at Sutton Bank, the view that the 'real' James Herriot (Alf Wright) called "the finest view in England".

The Yorkshire coast towns of Scarborough and Whitby need little introduction and provide a host of attractions for all ages. Of course the historic City of York is a must with almost limitless options, check out Visit York to plan your time in the City.
