We were lucky with the weather allowing us to get out and about and walk through the beautiful surrounding Yorkshire countryside, bathed in glowing Autumn colours and explore quaint historic sites and villages, all within easy access without too much driving, accompanied by excellent tea shops!!! A bonus? - Beavers the butchers in Masham make excellent pies and a wide variety of sauasages.
