There are opportunities in the area to take part in a wide range of activities and sites to see such as; fishing, shopping, bowling, golf, adventure parks, castles, abbeys and stately homes.

Sheriff Hutton is a lovely village to visit, with a fantastic pub, The Highwayman Inn, a country pub with a warm welcome, serving delicious homemade food using local produce. Or if you fancy something quick, easy, to eat in the caravan or tent, why not get your food delivered using the local takeaway Pizza World. Fish and Chips are a winner most families, and a great British Meal, so why not try the award winning Thompsons Fish Restaurant and Takeaway on Malton Road.

Steeped in History, with its cobbled streets, and beautiful old buildings, York is a must see. With attractions such as the York Dungeon, York Railway Museum, Castle Museum, Jorvik Centre and York Minister, it is sure to be a day that won’t be forgotten.
