Castle Howard can be described as one of Britain's finest Stately homes, and is a regular favourite for North Yorkshire locals. With beautifully sculptured gardens and water features, lavish state rooms & sumptuous interiors, if you have time to visit the Castle it's self, we definitely recommend!
If walking's more your thing, the surrounding Howardian Hills offer plenty of opportunity for a wander. With a dense network of footpaths, a plethora of quaint villages and miles of countryside - there's something for everyone.
Our favourite walk is not for the faint-hearted! The walk circles the Castle Howard estate, visiting attractions such as The Great Lake, Temple of Four Winds and Mausoleum. The difficulty is described as easy/moderate and measures a distance of 5 miles.
