My 3 of the best picnic spots in North Yorkshire

It’s National picnic month!

Grab your flask and sarnies and lets go!

By Natalie Johnson – 15th July 2020

I’ve been picnicking in North Yorkshire ever since I can remember, and it brings back such happy memories. That feeling of escaping to the open countryside, with stunning views and rolling hills will be with me forever. I know it certainly has played a part in the decision to move to this beautiful county when I had a family of my own.

I’m not kidding when I say it was a tough choice to choose just 3 because there are so many outstanding areas and picturesque places to visit you can’t really go wrong!

RECOMMENDATION | Billy Bob’s Parlour & Diner – The Yorkshire Dales 88

Kiplin Hall

Richmond DL10 6AT

Situated next to the river swale in the vale of Mowbray this attractive Jacobean grade l listed house stands proud in its beautiful surroundings. With walled and formal gardens to enjoy as well as strolls round the lake Kiplin Hall makes the perfect place to picnic.

There is a lovely tearoom here too but its currently closed but do not worry, they have the best idea!

PIZZA PICNICS ANYONE!!! Yes please!

They have a local firm called ‘Proper Pizza’ that are making homemade delicious pizza in their authentic wood-fired pizza oven. There is also hot drinks and sweet treats available from the Kiplin kitchen.

Kiplin Hall is currently open 3 days a week, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Right I’m there!

Roseberry Topping

Roseberry Lane, Newton under Roseberry, Middlesbrough TS9 6QR

Public car park at the junction on the A173 between Guisborough and Great Ayton.

This dramatic hill can be seen for miles and has become an iconic landmark in the area, its summit has a half cone shaped cliff with a serrated edge that has wore over many years. The walk to the top usually takes about 20 minutes or so and you can choose to climb different routes depending on ability. Once at the top the spectacular view over the North York Moors is mesmerizing, catching it at sunset is my favourite.

There are some great walks here too. There is so much wildlife from birds to pond skaters, this is where I saw my first wild deer and I was so excited! It’s such a brilliant place to come with the family and children of all ages. Although I would not recommend taking a pushchair up Roseberry Topping, we used a baby carrier when Phoebe was a baby. It’s also a great place to bring your dogs.

Ryedale Folk Museum, Hutton le Hole, Kirkbymoorside, YO62 6UA

Situated in one of the prettiest villages in North Yorkshire in the heart of the North York Moors, this open-air museum with collections in historic buildings on rural local life from the iron age to the 1950s really gives allows you to step back in time.

There are plenty of grassy areas to picnic, great for the kids to have a run and explore dogs are allowed if they are kept on a lead. I particularly love visiting here, I never tire from it and if you love Beamish, you’ll really enjoy this gem of a place.

If you want to venture out into the village of Hutton le Hole itself, I would certainly do so. With its roaming woolly residents (sheep I mean), great pub, little tea and ice cream shops, not to mention the little river that runs through is perfect for paddling and another fantastic place to picnic.
