Beyond our farm, explore the public footpaths - one of which passes through our fields - that take you through some of the most beautiful countryside in England, to dramatic cliff tops or down to the sea at Robin Hood's Bay. Explore the open moorland, rich in Bronze Age archaeology with numerous tumuli, linear earthworks and even a stone circle. Hear the curlew and the grouse.
Locally you can visit the National Trust's Coastal Centre in the Old Coastguard Station in Robin Hood's Bay, go to the local museum, enjoy a ghost walk ... and all that without even venturing to Whitby.
