Having seen the Tour de France winding its way through Yorkshire this summer what better time to get inspired and out on your bike? If you need ideas there are plenty of bike rides for families as well as longer rides for the more adventurous. We’ve also teamed up with British Cycling to put on a series of Sky Rides at some of our places.

Go sport mad with us

Our places are perfect for outdoor activities, whether it’s walking, running or canoeing, but 12 properties in particular have really gone sport mad this summer. Together with our partners Sport England we’re offering lots of events, trails and kit to play with.

Time to hit the beach

Britain has some beautiful beaches, and now that summer's finally here they're a great place to spend some time.

But don't just throw down a towel and start a book, why don't you pick up a board or just go for a run? They make the perfect place to let off some steam so get up early, avoid the sun worshipers and feel the sand between your toes.


With a range of trails designed by our team of rangers, our routes are a great way to discover nature and history, There is also range of difficulty levels and distances to choose from.


We know that exploring is brilliant by bike, and we welcome cyclists to enjoy our landscapes. Our estates are for cycling allowing you to get off-road, and deep into beautiful countryside.


We have miles of great trails for you to explore - and all with views that no gym could compete with. If you want to get involved in some of our events then how about our night time trail runs


Get out on the water and enjoy amazing surroundings from your canoe or kayak. We care for some of the best paddling spots in the country including lakes, canals, estuaries and coast.


With over 700 miles of coastline under our care, it's little wonder that we look after some of Britain's most exhilarating surf spots.
