Ampleforth Attractions

Ampleforth is a pretty Yorkshire village, on the edge of the North Yorkshire National Park and in an area of outstanding natural beauty, home to over eight hundred and eighty people. Honey coloured limestone cottages nestle amongst glorious countryside which entice walkers relentlessly, the Saxon church of St Hilda has Medieval stained glass windows and the remains of the old Saxon Market Cross outside.
Nearby you will find Ampleforth Abbey and College with their shop and tea room, sports centre with pool, gym and squash courts open to the public as well as a golf course across the valley.
The area is full of interest from the evocative Kilburn White Horse carved by a local schoolteacher into the hillside nearby, and the Medieval Fortress of Helmsley Castle which rewinds time in an instant, with Visitors Centre and impressive ditches. Duncombe Park the Helmsley seat of the Feversham family now has a Birds of Prey Centre, a fascinating visit.
18th Century Shandy Hall will appeal to book lovers, or on a grander scale Nunnington Hall on the banks of the River Rye, has elegant rooms, impressive tapestries, and fine furniture, outside there are 8 acres of grounds, wildflower meadow, orchards and tea garden which is sure to please. Artists and Photographers are bewitched with magnificent arches of 12th Century Rievaulx Abbey which shares it's intriguing tale in their Museum, or fast forward to the 1940's and enter the fabulous James Herriot Museum in Skeldale House,Thirsk where Television room sets, and living quarters of the world's most famous Vet is on display, as well as fascinating examples of all things veterinary. Your hostess used to work there as a veterinary surgeon and has many amusing tales to tell !
Racetracks at Thirsk, York, Ripon, Catterick, Redcar and Beverley are all within an hours travel, and Doncaster perhaps another 15 minutes .
It is the most beautiful area for walking, both easy and difficult routes and the views are simply magnificent .
