    We are stituated in York, looking for somwhere new to go.
    Mrs60 loves gardens (Very National Trust)
    Ian60 loves ancient ruins (Very English Heritage)

    Kids love anything as long as it involves space and rolling down hills.


    So, your votes please, Castle Howard , or Hadrian's wall
     
  2. Roman Wall and if the fancy takes you, you can indulge Mrs60 by swanning over to Cragside which ain't far away.

    Haven't you been to Castle Howard? There seems to be a list of places
    everyone with children goes if they live in York and CH is one of them.
    It's got nice grounds, big lake, woodland walks and it's 20 mins from
    York so would it be a holiday?
    Hadrians Wall - well it's a bit further!! But there is loads to do up there - Bamburgh is one of them, some great beaches in Northumberland and lovely scenery.

     
  5. Vindolanda!

    Neither of those!
    The abandoned medieval village near Malton. I'll remember the name in a minute. Wharram Percy The Roman Camp in the wood near Pickering. Might remember that soon too. The ruined castle in the woods at Sandsend. The beach at Skinningrove. Ideal for barbecues. Woodland walks near Guisborough. Bike trail from Wetherby to Spofforth Castle.
    Yes, give me some toddlers I will be there!

    Brimham Rocks and Fountains Abbey - a nice day out from York and ticks the boxes for both of you.
    Newby Hall - lovely gardens, miniature railway, children's outdoor area
    Dalby Forest
