Join Sheffield DA this Spring Bank Holiday as we return to our Temporary Holiday Site at Hutton Le Hole, one of the most attractive villages in the North York Moors National Park.
Friday 26th May to Sunday 11th June 2023
The site is located right in the heart of Hutton Le Hole, where Hutton Beck winds casually through the Village Green. In the Village the visitor can enjoy browsing artisan craft workshops offering unique hand-crafted candles, rugs, carpets and delightful chocolate. Ryedale Folk Museum tells the story of the area through the ages, including over 20 reconstructed buildings ranging from an Iron Age roundhouse to a Tudor mansion and many more.
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, no least to visit the annual Malton Food Lovers Festival, said to be "Yorkshire's foodie Glastonbury"with 180 stalls all across town, together with family events, live music & much, much more. In 2023 the festival will be held over the weekend of 27th and 28th May.
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.
York Racecourse can be reached in around 1 hour and racegoers might be tempted to take in the William Hill Brontë Cup on the First Saturday Race meeting, on Saturday 27st May.
