Tentative Yorkshire Itinerary - Feedback, Please!

Jump to last reply

Based on everyone's input, we're framed a tentative itinerary for the Yorkshire leg of our June 2014 trip. Even though the trip is a year away, we'd like to feel settled about where we're going so we can spend a happy year researching and anticipating what we're doing.

So, here it is:

York - 2 nights - we're looking at Turnberry House. http://www.turnberryhouse.com/pages/home.html

Our tentative plans include a ½ day trip to Holme-Upon-Spalding-Moor and Bubwith (homes of the ancestors), the Cathedral, Railway Museum, and a volunteer walking tour.

En route to our next stop, Helmsley, we'd like to visit Castle Howard.

Helmsley - 3 nights - we're looking at Westway Cottage. http://www.westway-cottage.co.uk/

Our tentative plans include Rievaulx Abbey, possibly the train to Whitby? What's the best way to see the coast?

En route to our next stop, Pateley Bridge, we'd like to visit Ripon (Cathedral, Fountains Abbey, Studley Royal), Masham (Hackfall Woods, Brymor Ice Cream, Black Sheep Brewery), and Bolton Abbey.

Pateley Bridge - 5 nights - we're looking at Prospect House or Lyndale Guest House. http://www.prospecthousebandbexclusive.co.uk/ http://www.lyndaleguesthouse.com/index.php/loc/article/1-lyndale-guest-house

So far, our "to do" list for the Dales includes Richmond, Swaledale, Wensleydale, Leyburn (Wensleydale Longwool Sheep Shop), Hawes, Jervaulx Abbey.

Does the order and distribution of nights makes sense?

We'd love suggestions on what to see!
