Activities Around Barmoor
Athough sometimes hard to drag yourself away from the peace and calm of Barmoor there are many attractions locally in the North York Moors, on the North Yorkshire coast and, if you need a ‘shot’ of the City, York is about an hour’s drive.
In the village of Hutton-le-Hole there is the national award winning Ryedale Folk Museum portraying the history of life on the moors in imaginative and entertaining ways.
There are many moorland, woodland and valley walks near by. Fields next to Barmoor are farmed organically and farm walks/visits can be arranged.
In Pickering there is the Beck Isle museum and the North York Moors Railway and slightly further afield but still very accessible are Castle Howard, Rievaulx Abbey, Flamingo Land and the historic City of York.
The North York Moors National Park is one of the most stunning landscapes in the country, it will simply make you stand and stare. This is a land where dreams are made. Here you can experience the vast open space of moorland, listen to the call of the upland birds, walk for miles and miles or sit and watch the world go by.
A short ride over the moors to the Yorkshire coast finds Whitby and its memorable museum and many references to Captain Cook; his life, voyages and connections to the town.
Robin Hood’s Bay, Runswick Bay, Staithes and Scarborough are also easily reached.
