The Forbidden Corner

“The Forbidden Corner is a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises created within a four-acre garden in the heart of Tupgill Park and the Yorkshire Dales. A tourist visitor attraction unlike anywhere that you have been before, ideal for the adventurers and those young at heart!”

Hesketh Farm Park

“Hesketh Farm Park is set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, just 1 mile from the picturesque village of Bolton Abbey and 5 miles from the market town of Skipton. The Farm Park is idyllic, with around 10 acres of greenery overlooking the Yorkshire hills and the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam train whistling by in the valley below.”

Billy Bobs Parlour

Go old school with ice cream staples like Vanilla and Mint Choc Chip or pick from high-falutin’ flavours like Key Lime Pie, Rainbow Sherbet or Cotton Candy; there’s nearabout 30 or so on offer. Imagine a place where the service is real gone friendly, where the whole family can dine together round a big diner booth, where there’s always a toe tappin’ tune on the jukebox, with hearty portions aplenty and a fun, upbeat atmosphere and you’d be dreaming of Billy Bob’s!”

Yorkshire Wildlife Park

“Built on a former riding school and farm, Yorkshire Wildlife Park has come along way since it opened in April 2009. A dynamic centre for conservation and welfare, the park has over 400 animals and over 70 different species of animal.”

If you are looking for a more outdoor adventure, try getting down to the beach whatever the weather, enjoy fish and chips on the sand with your family and take in the special moments! It has certainly been a tough year, take this time to make some special memories before heading back to work.

If these are not ticking any of your boxes, you could try:

  • Gardening
  • Having a picnic
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Re-decorating
  • Shopping
  • Baking

We hope you have a great day!
