Best Places for Paddling

Cod Beck Reservoir

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.


Places to Paddle

Recommendations as to where to paddle¬†“inland”¬†from Mumblers’ May ’17

Thornton le Dale beck

The beck just by the Beck Isle Museum. There’s a grassy area right next to it for a picnic…

The stream in Dalby Forest near the visitor centre

Sinnington near Pickering – just near the bridge

The tearooms near Falling Foss waterfall

The beck in Hovingham is nice and it’s a good opportunity to eat cake at the cafe

Paddle, ice cream and picnic in the stream at Hutton Le Hole
