Things to see and do near Burythorpe House

Many of our guests find it hard to tear themselves away from the tranquillity of the hotel, but there is so much to see and do close by.

The grandeur of Castle Howard is just 20 minutes away by car and makes a splendid day out. The Yorkshire Coast is magnificent, especially the cliffs around Bempton and Flamborough, while Whitby is also a great day out. For shopping, York is easy to reach, and boasts good cafes and restaurants, too.

Why not combine your stay with some racing? Our favourite courses are York and Beverley.

Staying local, why not pay a visit to one of the many top-class public houses in the area, ranging from rustic and traditional to modern gastropubs.

It is possible to land helicopters in the land in front of the hotel (we need a little warning so we can make sure the horses do not get frightened!). We recommend to arrange a helicopter during your stay.
