Welcome to Yorkshire!
We are host to some truly spectacular, world-class golf courses.
Malton and Norton Golf Club, situated between York and Scarborough, is known as Yorkshire's hidden gem course. It boasts 27 holes of parkland golf, a driving range and a short game area. It truly is one of the regions finest golf clubs.
But Yorkshire has a lot more to offer you than golf. We have taken the time to curate some of our favourite places to eat, stay and do, in the region.
Malton has been crowned by Bake-Off Judge Prue Leith as her "Favourite Foodie Town," so there's no shortage of yummy places to grab something to eat. Try the tasty menu at The Talbot. A fun and fresh look at Yorkshire produce focussed on classic dishes such as dressed Whitby crab, Yorkshire pork belly and Barnsley chop. Whether you're popping in for a quick bite or staying longer, you’re sure of a warm Yorkshire welcome and lots of friendly chatter.
Whole Hogg is a favourite family eatery with plenty of homegrown produce on the menu. At the farm, you can meet some of their wonderful 4-legged friends. Betsey The Clydesdale Horse, Dylan, Ruby and Roxy, the Shetland ponies, Pearl the Pig and goats Lily & Robbie.
Located within the grounds of Scampston Hall is their beautifully situated cafe, over-looking the Walled Garden. It serves delicious, home-made lunches and cream teas using local ingredients. It is the perfect place to sit outside on a summer’s day and enjoy a Brymor Ice Cream.
An old hunting lodge built in the 1600s, The Talbot, Malton has provided guests with a warm welcome for a very long time! All their bedrooms are unique in shape, size and decoration, adding a touch of mystique to every visit. Plump pillows, soft linens and a comfortable mattress make for a bed you won't want to leave, so it's a good job you can have a lay-in with late check-outs at noon.
Beech Farm Cottages have won the Yorkshire Tourist Boards Self-Catering Holiday of the Year Award four times, meaning quality is assured. Facilities include a heated swimming pool, sauna, walled garden with pond and barbecue area. Also, children will enjoy the large play area and paddock where they can meet the two Llamas, chickens & ducks and Koi Carp.
The Private Hill is a destination in itself. Somewhere to leave the real world behind and to immerse yourself in pure indulgence, in the privacy of stunning nature. The villages of Helmsley, Pickering and Pocklington are nearby, and the beautiful City of York is only 25 mins away. Every dome is just like a room you would expect to find in a 5-star boutique hotel with sumptuously comfortable beds, luxury sheets and duvets, a choice of pillows and a stocked minibar fridge with a small freezer too.
Flamingo Land is a theme park with a difference. It has a wide range of thrilling and family rides, swashbuckling pirate day time shows and meet and greets with characters from CBeebies for the younger ones. There is also an award-winning zoo with many different animals and creatures waiting for you to visit them. If you love it so much you don't want to leave then they have holiday lodges and cottages so you can stay with them for the whole of your trip to Yorkshire.
Housed in an original Prisoner of War Camp, a visit to this unique, award-winning museum will transport you back in time to wartime Britain. Experience the sights and sounds and even smells of both the Home Front and Front Line in a series of expertly recreated scenes. The Blitz, the Street at War (with rationing and fashions), the Home Guard, Evacuation, the Battle of Britain and VE & VJ Day are all covered in the first half of the museum. The themes of World conflicts and battles are depicted in the second half. The Music Hall is our favourite hut, where you can sing along in the daily puppet shows with the stars of the 1940s, including classics from Vera Lynn and George Formby.
