Walk through stunning pine woodland around the reservoir, which would only be 1.5 miles max, a path the whole way round so pushchair friendly. Excellent for kids dogs and anyone wanting a lovely walk! Theres a stream for paddling and grassy spots for pic nics.
There are 2 small free car parks which is a bonus and even a designated parking bay for the ice cream van. It is only 17 miles from Helmsley and a lovely drive. Just North of Thirsk. You can either go the A19 or from Helmsley go past Rievaulx Abbey.
