Just one summer week left

We have only one week free at The Old Vicarage this summer, starting on Friday 7 July.

This is a fabulous time to visit the Yorkshire Dales with its abundance of natural wildflower meadows, big summer skies and large expanses of leafy woodland - perfect for rambling walks or just taking in the spectacular views.

The days are also at their longest and the living really is easy at The Old Vicarage with plenty of time for al fresco dining in the gardens or just sitting relaxing by the private stretch of river watching the world go by.

Should you wish to explore, there are plenty of seasonal things to see and do in the surrounding area. The week coincides with the Great Yorkshire Show - England's premier agricultural event that attracts 130,000 visitors over three days. We take our prize-winning Highland cattle there each year so you can always help prepare them for their competitions and cheer them along in the show ring! Children in particular love to help groom and wash them.

Nearby Bolton Castle has a special Medieval Household weekend when you can see how the inhabitants cooked, ate and lived; and Kiplin Hall is hosting a traditional hog roast with live music.

We are always happy to advise you about these and many other events taking place nearby.

Call now on 01748 884348 to secure this last remaining week or use the online booking service in this website. 

Late availability for May Day week

Late availability for May Day week

Due to a last-minute cancellation, we are unexpectedly able to offer the week of 28 April to 5 May 2017, which takes in the May Day bank holiday weekend. This is a week that always gets booked well in advance and is now one of the few remaining slots available this summer.

It is a stunning time to visit the Yorkshire Dales. The trees are all in leaf displaying their many shades of green; bluebells and other late Spring flowers carpet the woodland floors; and the bird song is at its best led by the characteristic calls of the skylarks and curlews. Lengthening days also mean that you can really make the most of your holiday and there's plenty to enjoy in the local area with the many extra bank holiday events and celebrations.

Over the weekend itself, nearby Constable Burton Hall hosts its renowned Tulip Festival with a spectacular display of over 6,500 bulbs of traditional and new varieities (pictured); Richmond Castle has a WW1 re-enactment event complete with storytelling and dramatic performances; and Beamish Museum has a May Day festival featuring music, maypole dancing and traditional crafts.

If you are a lover of outdoor pursuits, then why not follow the Tour de Yorkshire cycling event from 28 - 30 April? Day two's route from Tadcaster to Harrogate is within easy travelling distance and promises to be an amazing spectacle with thousands taking part. Alternatively, make your way through the myriad of walking paths and bridleways that criss cross this specatacular part of Britain.

Please call 01748 884348 to discuss further detils of this rare opportunity for a last-minute break at The Old Vicarage.
