From heritage sites and ancient abbeys through to exciting family theme parks you will not be short of places to visit during your stay at Studford Lodges. These are just a few suggestions from the Studford team:
Magnificent 18th Century house with beautiful gardens, children's adventure playground, farm shop, garden centre, cafes and gift shop. A great day out for all the family. See www.castlehoward.co.uk.
One of English Heritage's best preserved ruined abbeys dating back to medieval times. Apart from its beautifully tranquil setting you can take in an indoor exhibition, audio tour and tearoom. Find out more at English Heritage
Another medieval monastery just 4 miles away, also worth a visit and very easy to visit this and Rievaulx in the same excursion. See English Heritage
Unlock 900 years of history at the market town's famous Castle before visiting the adjacent five-acre walled working kitchen garden and its popular Vinehouse Vegetarian Cafe. Find out more about the castle at English Heritage and the walled garden at www.helmsleywalledgarden.org.uk
A theme park and zoo rolled into one attracting 1.8 million visitors a year. Try out Pterodactyl, a vertical swing ride guaranteed to get the hairs standing up at the back of your head and Mumbo Jumbo a rollercoaster that made it to the Guiness Book Of Records when it first opened in 2009. Visit the website www.flamingoland.co.uk.
Another family theme park designed to fill your day with thrills, chills, and spills. You can catapult to dizzying heights aboard the Whirlwind, or hurtle through dark, dense forest on The Ultimate, reputably Europe's longest rollercoaster. The wild river rapid ride is also popular, as is the spinning Eagle's Claw. Find out more at www.lightwatervalley.co.uk.
NYM Steam Railway
Take a trip on the popular world heritage steam railway through the dramatic moorland scenery of the national park. A great way to visit the isolated villages of Grosmont and Goathland, made famous by the TV 50s crime series Heartbeat. You can also hop off for a pretty walk around the Levisham Estate.
