Our week in Yorkshire

We went to Yorkshire for the week with my parents, brother & their 2 dogs. My brother’s partner joined us for the last few days

We stayed in a lovely house in Cayton

We’ve never been to that part of the world before so it was nice going somewhere new

The garden was huge & had a hot tub which we got lots of use out of

We visited Bridlington & met up withj one of my friends & her family. Mini M loved going on the pirate ship

We also visited Filey Beach. It was a lovely big beach & the boys had great fun playing in the sand

We loved Whitby, we went twice.

On the first visit we climbed the 199 steps to the Abbey & had an ice cream

The second time we went was following our trip on the North Moors Railway. We went there & back on the steam train which Mini M loved! I have to admit I loved the Harry Potter style carriages

We paid a visit to Dalby Forest, unfortunately we couldn’t find the Gruffalo but we did follow the Highway Rat trail.

After Dalby Forest we went to Goathland. They used to film Heartbeat there & the train station was used in the Harry Potter films as Hogsmeade

We had a fantastic week

To be honest a week probably wasn’t long enough to explore but we enjoyed all our days out

Plus it was great to spend time as a family

    Lots of great happy memories. Not an area I know at all but looks like you had great weather and found plenty to do. My girls are into Harry Potter so that would impress them and I’d like the hot tub! #countrykids

    Looks like you had a wonderful break and packed in some great adventures with the family. Always a bonus in the UK to have the weather on your side and it looks like you were in luck. I don’t know the area at all but the beaches look beautiful and the woodland trails are always a good day. I think I would have loved the railway as much as the kids.

    Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

    Wow, you packed so much into your trip – the pirate ship looked fab. I did a similar visit in 2016 but I still haven’t managed to write the post! #CountryKids

    Nice to see you had good weather and managed so many different activities. The tide looks very far out, a long walk for a paddle
    Gosh at how small height wise that police car looks, were we all so much smaller back then?

    Sounds like you really made the most of your time in Yorkshire. We love it up there and want to go back and visit Flamingoland again. That house with hot tub looks fantastic – as does the Harry Potter style train.

    What a lovely trip away and it looks like you packed plenty in to the week! I love the look of the hot tub in the garden and the pirate ship looks like fun. The boys look like they were having a wonderful time on the beach and that steam train ride looks like it was a good one 🙂 #countrykids
