Activity Star

The Star's location in rural North Yorkshire offers the opportunity to be your own 'teamleader' and put together a break, which can be as exhilarating or as relaxed as you please. Here are just a few suggestions:

Stars 'n' Hikes
Yorkshire fresh air is a great way to build up an appetite and there are some great walks around Harome, including some short circular walks from the pub and longer walks for the seasoned hiker:

Harome Walk: Harome Heads Farm and River Riccal, 2¾ miles approx - download walk.



Circular Walks close by:
Helmsley to Rievaulx, or Helmsley 'Ashdale Woods' Walk Starts: approx 1.5 miles from Harome

Farndale 'Daffodil' Walk Starts: approx 10.5 miles from Harome

Hutton-le-Hole/Lastingham Circular Walk Starts: approx 8 miles from Harome

Signposted Long Distance Walks close to Harome:
The Cleveland Way: The Helmsley to Rievaulx Abbey section of this walk, which skirts the Duncombe Park Estate, is just a couple of miles there and a couple of miles back. The section starts near Helmsley Castle and ends at Rievaulx Abbey (English Heritage properties).



The Inn Way: North Yorkshire Moors The Helmsley to Hutton-le-Hole section (14 miles) of this walk passes by Harome.

Ebor Way: This is the third long distance walk, which starts at Helmsley. The route passes close to Harome and the section to Hovingham would make a pleasant longer walk. Hovingham Hall is open to visitors at certain times of the year.

Stars 'n' Spokes
For cyclists, there is a great deal of variety on offer: those looking for a challenge can get up to 'The Great Yorkshire Forest' at Dalby, just over 30 minutes away from Harome to mountain bike on the World Championship courses, either with their own bikes or arranging hire from Purple Mountain ( There are 4 routes graded green (easy) to black (severe).

For more sedate cycling there are opportunities to ride in the grounds and parkland of our local stately home, Duncombe Park, or we can provide a couple of alternative routes on some of the quieter country lanes around Harome, taking in the pretty village of Nunnington or further afield, if you wish. Bikes can be hired from close by at Golden Square Caravan Park, subject to availability.

Cycle Route 1: Nunnington (8 miles approx) - download route

Pickering Trout Lake is open from Easter to the end of October and Wykeham Lakes are also quite close.

Stars on High
Brace yourself and fly off the top of Sutton Bank, twirling in the thermals with Yorkshire Gliding Club (probably something to do before rather than after lunch!) for the ultimate bird's eye view of the White Horse of Kilburn and the stunning views over the Vale of York, a truly exhilarating experience. Visit for more information.


Riding on a Star
