#VW Camper Winter weekend road trip .

It’s winter and there’s a definite pull just to stay in, draw the curtains and curl up in front of the fire…………. Or, you could of course be adventurous and take in some of #North Yorkshire Moors #National Park best cycling routes and other adrenaline junkie activities!!

Collect George, Load the bikes on to his 4-bike bike rack, and head off towards Dalby Forest only 45 miles from our base. There are 55 miles of #cycle trails to explore in the forest and a range of cycle trails from family friendly, to highly technical demanding routes.

For the more extreme cyclists, head to the cycle skills area at Dixon's Hollow and the UCI World Cup course which is available for those who fancy a challenge!!

If you want to make a weekend of it and explore a few of the lovely villages along the way , there’s the fabulous #Crown at Hutton -le -Hole , they have four electric hook up points for Caravans. in their car park and are open all year round . Last time we visited it was only £10.00 per night, so a bargain. Take advantage of the lovely restaurant & fine wines, then stagger to bed in your fully heated and cosy #George!! What’s not to like!!

#Hutton-le -Hole has a few hidden gems, next door is the #The Ryedale Folk Museum . Step back in time and explore 4000 years of history, see how people in the past lived, worked and played.

There are also some excellent walks in the area including a circular walk to Lasting ham. Another popular walk is to #Inhofe (Ana) Cross, the largest of the 37 crosses on the North York Moors.

After a good feed in the crown what better way to blow the cobwebs away than an energetic cycle route. Head for Dalby forest and hit the tracks.

For a real forest adventure why not stay over in the forest at #Paxton Moor farm campsite. Located in the heart of the forest and open until the end of November.

This would give you time to experience #Go Ape . This location is one of seven thrilling Go Ape experiences in the #North of England. Swing by for a blast of unforgettable action!!

If of course you can squeeze in any more adventurous activities before you head home or even better you can actually manage a long weekend, on your return trip you can stop off at #Sutton Bank . Here you will find fabulous views and more exhilarating #cycle tracks. The famous #White Horse also lives here.

Don’t forget #George is fully heated and well equipped to cook some warming winter meals, so what’s stopping you??

Oh, and one last thing, Dalby is one of the best places in the country to see #stars, because of the low light pollution levels and clear horizons, so pack your winter woollies and do some star gazing!!

Happy #winter weekends!!
