Summer excitement and the related chaos is over & naturally there is time for routine and calm. The Indian summer may continue sporadically but it paves the way for cooler, crisper days – the leaves turning and almost before we can blink the inevitable stampede towards Christmas & New Year.
It is the perfect time to enjoy a short break closer to home – a small bag to pack and a car to jump into – no airports, no parking, no rush – just time to relax, breathe and take stock of life.
In our beautiful corner of this wonderful country the moorland heather is at its’ best – a rich purple carpet – best enjoyed in our opinion from the steam train which leaves from Pickering every morning taking you as far as Whitby for that ubiquitous plate of fish and chips. Best enjoyed after a blowy walk on the beach.
Or if adrenalin is your thing how about a blast through the world mountain bike course in the beauty of Dalby Forest – imagine the colours as Autumn sets in.
From the world famous Castle Howard to the rarity of the beautiful mediaeval wall paintings in our town parish church there is every opportunity to warm the soul without any hustle or hurry.
Fires are being lit, glasses of red wine poured and the comfort of slow cooked & seasonal food is waiting at a table.
Time to kick off those shoes and tuck in – this really is God’s own county – selflessly we welcome you to share it!
