GOLD Hidden Corners of Yorkshire taste of luxury

Beautiful, wild scenery and historic railways can be found in North Yorkshire. The Wensleydale Railway takes in hidden farms and villages. Richmond's castle is delightful and the whole landscape can be appreciated from a birds' eye view from Sutton Bank. There's a cruise on the River Tees and a steam train ride across the North York Moors to Whitby.

We depart and make our way north
arriving at the Gisborough Hall Hotel late
afternoon for the next 4 nights stay with dinner,
bed and breakfast.


Our first visit today is to Preston Park
and the Hall Museum. Take a walk back in time
through the cobbled Victorian street and
imagine life as it was in times past. At Preston
Hall we join the ‘Teesside Princess’ and take a
gentle cruise on the River Tees through beautiful
countryside to the cobbled town of Yarm,
famous for its location on the River and the awe
inspiring railway viaduct. In the afternoon we
drive through Bilsdale - “Little Switzerland”, and
past the Sun Inn, which has had the same
landlord for 200 years! We then pass Rievaulx
Abbey, and drop into Helmsley with its 12th
century castle. On the way back to the hotel we
travel over the spectacular Sutton Bank, giving
you fantastic views of the moors and across the
Vale of York.


Today we visit Thirsk, home of
James Herriot, and a chance to take in the
acclaimed World of James Herriot Centre.
Afterwards we experience a piece of history and
ride on the ‘Wensleydale Railway’, newly opened
after sleeping for over fifty years. Later we end
the day with a visit to Richmond where you will
find a castle, the tiny Georgian Theatre, The
Green Howards Museum and the Richmondshire
Museum, which houses the ‘set’ from “All
Creatures Great & Small”.


We travel over the moors, across Blakey
Ridge, through picturesque Hutton-le-Hole to
Pickering, where we join the North Yorkshire
Moors Railway for a steam train journey through
rugged moorland to Whitby – passing through
Goathland – ‘Aidensfield’ in TV’s ‘Heartbeat’ – on
the way. Whitby is a maritime town, fishing port
and seafarer’s haven, bursting with character and
unique. Wander the alleyways and narrow streets
and perhaps climb the steps up to Whitby Abbey.


After breakfast we leave and begin
our homeward journey.
