Welcome to Yurtshire

Places To Visit & Things To Do

16 February 2016 by  

Whilst relaxing in Yurtshire is ideal for some visitors, others wish to use our sites as a base & explore the local areas. Here are a few things to do nearby to our yurt sites.

– National Trust sites include Brimham Rocks & Fountains Abbey. Enjoy wonderful walks & explore historical places, along with a picnic or a cake or two at the cafe.

– Harrogate Spa Town offers loads of wonderful shops including the world famous Bettys! Harrogate also provided the finish line on day one when Yorkshire welcomed the beginning of Le Tour De France so you’ll probably spot a few yellow bikes around still!

– For any Shakespeare fans, Stratford Upon Avon isn’t far from over Umberslade location.

– Chocolate lovers will love Cadbury World, bring us back a Freddo!

– If the weather is poor, Twiggy’s Soft Play Centre in Thirsk offers 4000 square feet of space for children to run off excess energy and have great fun!

– Castle Howard is one of Britain’s finest historic houses & gardens, only a stones throw from our Newburgh Priory site.

We also detail a host of places to eat & drink on our website, including restaurants, pubs & fish & chip shops!

Looking for something specific? Just ask, we can always recommend places for our guests.

We look forward to welcoming you to Yurtshire.
