New…. Skelf Island at Castle Howard.

Just 30mins from Granary and Stables cottages.

Children will be able to search for the hidden ‘Skelves’ – the fictional inhabitants of the magical island.

The new family attraction officially opens to the public this Saturday (July 13) ahead of the school summer holidays and will enable children to re-connect with nature.

The playground is inspired by the medieval settlement of Henderskelf, which was close to the site of the Earls of Carlisles’ grandiose stately home, Castle Howard.







The Skelves are the fictional inhabitants of Skelf Island

North Yorkshire Water Park!

Just 5minutes from our cottage, Open every day in July and August.

One of the largest natural sports lakes in North Yorkshire, we offer a range of fun, relaxing and exciting activities for everyone to enjoy. You can challenge yourself, learn a new skill or make a splash! Nestled in picturesque countryside, we are just off the A170, near Wykeham, and within an hour’s drive of York, Middlesborough, Filey and Bridlington.

Have a go at kayaking, test your balance on a stand-up paddle board or learn to sail, take a dip and go for an open water swim or take a peaceful trip on one of our electric mini ships or pedalos. Get away from it all on our 2.5km all-terrain walking and cycle track around the lake whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings.

Finish off your day with a blast on our ever popular Aquapark, with some of the largest inflatable slides, climbing walls and trampolines in the region.
