Put your pedals through their paces on one of our bike rides

With the Tour de France winding its way through Yorkshire this summer there's never been a better time to get 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.

Get aqua active

With over 700 miles of coast and loads of lakes and waterways we’ve got some great ideas to get you wet and wild this summer.

We’ve got some great places to canoe or kayak plus some beautiful beaches for surfing or bodyboarding. If you really want to immerse yourself then how about finding one of our places to stay by the water.

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.
