Dale Farm is ideally situated for exploring the best of Yorkshire. The village of Hunmanby is known as the gateway to the Yorkshire Wolds beloved by David Hockney. Hop on the Hockney trail to explore the landscapes that inspired some of the great man's work. If you're feeling particularly energetic, why not have a crack at the 79 mile Yorkshire Wolds Way? The farm is a short drive from the magnificent Yorkshire Coastline and the 5 mile sweep of Filey Bay, voted best beach in Britain 2018. The little Edwardian seaside town of Filey is great for sailing and sea fishing. Just south of Filey you will find RSPB Bempton, easily the best place in England to see seabirds, Flamborough head with its famous lighthouse and Bridlington makes for a fun day trip. Further north up the coast you can visit Scarborough with its castle, amusements and famous spa, the smugglers' village of Robin Hoods Bay and, of course, stunning Whitby with its ruined abbey and tales of Dracula. The North York Moors National Park is practically on the doorstep; you can take a steam train through the park (yes the one where Harry Potter was filmed.) Also in the park, Dalby Forest offers world-class mountain biking trails, plus a Go Ape! (0843 770 3911) high-wire course. If you fancy a day in the city, ancient York is less than an hour away by car or scenic train journey and should not be missed.

All the accommodation is self-catering but you can order one of Paul's delicious breakfast butties delivered to your door.

The beach cafe at Hunmanby Gap is a great place to stop for tea and cake after a long day on the beach. Filey has a great selection of restaurants and pubs including the tiny Cobblers' Arms, a real ale lovers paradise and firm favourite for the best Indian food, the Monsoon.

Follow the A64 in an eastwards direction until you get to the roundabout at Staxton, then take the second exit (A1039). Turn right on to White Gate Hill. Turn right on to Hall Park Road (Hunmanby Hall is on your left) and continue across the crossroads on to Bartindale Road. Dale Farm is about a mile down this road on the right hand side in the dip. In summer there is a trough of red geraniums at the end of the drive.
Frequent trains from north and south on the east coast mainline to York. Then take the Transpennine Express to Seamer (this is also the direct route from Manchester). Liz can collect from the station if required. Alternatively, take another little train right in to Hunmanby.
For overseas visitors, Humberside (Hull) Airport 54 miles; Doncaster’s Robin Hood Airport and Leeds Bradford International Airport are both approximately 70 miles. Ferry to Hull from Rotterdam or Zeebrugge.
