Relax in the adult only Warner Leisure Hotel, Nidd Hall set near Harrogate in the heart of Yorkshire. The story goes that the Grade II listed retreat is where Edward VIII first met Wallis Simpson. The magnificent hotel was built in the 1820s for Benjamin Rawson, a wealthy Bradford wool merchant, on the site of an Elizabethan manor house.
After our departure from our last main pick up point, we travel north with suitable stops en-route to our hotel for the next four nights.
Today we take you on a circular tour through the picturesque Yorkshire Dales and famous Ribblehead Viaduct on our way to the lovely market town of Hawes, also home to the Wensleydale Creamery made famous by Wallace and Gromit. We then continue to Leyburn for an authentic heritage Railway trip with the Wensleydale Railway. Beyond Leyburn the dale scenery takes a marked change. On emerging from the cutting to the west of the station, the full splendor of midwensleydale can be seen. Long views across the dale to Penhill are possible and the outlook from Redmire Station is one of the best views in the dales. The train waits at Redmire for a short time, allowing a photo opportunity, before starting its return journey back. The whole journey takes approximately 1 hour 15 minutes.
A free day to enjoy the many activities on offer at Warners.
After a leisurely breakfast we travel to Harewood House, one of the treasure Houses of England, set in the heart of rural Yorkshire. With rolling 'Capability Brown' landscapes, an impressive art collection including works by JMW Turner & El Greco, renaissance masterpieces, exquisite Thomas Chippendale furniture and fabulous Robert Adam interiors, all combined with 100 acres of award-winning gardens and a renowned lakeside Bird Garden. Included today is a guided tour of the house, boat trip on the lake and a delicious cream tea.
We return home via the retail outlet, Boundary Mills in Grantham for a leisurely lunch stop before we continue our journey back to our local area.
