Hall Farm is located only a short drive from many of Yorkshire top attractions and places to visit. As a guide, Hall Farm is:
Hall Farm is located about 12 miles from York, making the historic city the perfect destination for a day out. York is quite a compact city and is easy to walk around. We would recommend using the Park and Ride service from Monks Cross Shopping Centre. It's the best way to get in and out of the city and avoid expensive pay and display car parking.
York is an ancient city, with Roman walls and buildings such as Clifford's Tower bring its past alive. The yearly Viking Festival is a fantastic way to experience it's long history. The Jorvik Viking Centre continues to be one of the most popular visitor attractions in the north of England.
The grand Minster is well worth a visit, as is the National Railway Museum. You'll also find other museums and art galleries dotted around the city. There is a choice of cinemas as well as theatres.
York is also a fantastic destination for shopping. You'll find lots of big brands and well known high street shops alongside many independent stores.
There are plenty of excellent cafes and takeaways too as well as parks and plenty of green space. We'd highly recommend a visit to York whilst staying at Hall Farm.
Between The Howardian Hills and the Yorkshire coast lies the North York Moors National Park. Populated with only a handul of villages and small market towns it's a fantastic location for walking.
The purple heather blooms in August, covering the landscape in a bold and beautiful carpet of colour. The North York Moors Steam Railway runs from Pickering to the coast at Whitby. It is an amazing way to experience the landscape. You'll also enjoy seeing some of the pretty villages as you pass through on your way to your destination.
There are excellent opportunities for walking all over the North York Moors. We'd recommend getting hold of a local guidebook or a good Ordnance Survey map and exploring this beautiful landscape on foot.
On the far side of the North York Moors lies the North Sea. The
Yorkshire coast is home to some of the most picturesque fishing villages
and seaside towns in the UK.
An hour's drive across the North York Moors you'll find the ancient port of Whitby. Once a bustling whaling harbour with a large fishing fleet, Whitby is now one of the top seaside destinations.
The North Yorkshire coast is home to a variety of beaches. From the sandy shores of Scarborough and Whitby to the rock pools of Robin Hood's Bay. There are beaches which are home to ancient fossilised dinosaur footprints, and shiny black jet - made popular by Queen Victoria!
You can't beat the Yorkshire coast for a day at the seaside. Pack a picnic, or treat yourselves to fish and chips and make a day of it!
The Howardian Hills
covers 204 sq km (79 sq miles) of the North Yorkshire countryside,
nestled between the Yorkshire Wolds and the Vale of York. It is a unique
and captivating landscape with its rolling countryside and patchwork of
arable and pasture fields. It's home to scenic villages and historic
country houses with classic parkland landscapes.
Within a short distance of Hall Farm you'll find a choice of small and perfectly formed market towns. Malton is the food capital of North Yorkshire, with an excellent market. Helmsley is a wonderful small town with an ancient castle and small independent shops and cafes. Whichever direction you travel from Hall Farm you won't be short of options.
