Walking holidays in the Yorkshire Dales tends to be the most popular pursuit undertaken by guests who stay at this holiday park. While guests can use a local Ordnance Survey map to find routes, many paths are untrodden and lie waiting to be discovered by walkers. The park has also designed a number of walking routes themselves, and is happy to provide maps so that guests can make sure that their walk is a certain distance and most crucially that they get back to the campsite before dark, or by a certain time, since the timing of each walk has all been carefully tested for you.
As well as offering brilliant access to the Yorkshire Dales, a stay at Masham Black Swan Holiday Park also enables guests to experience the very best towns and cities of Yorkshire. A drive of around an hour will take tourists into the historic city of York. There are some tourist attractions that you must see. Visit York Minster and York Castle Museum, for instance.

This is one of Britain's finest cities and is a definite 'must' to put on your list of places to visit in Yorkshire.
Guests who love seaside holidays in Yorkshire and exploring the coast can take the slightly longer drive to the popular coastal town of Whitby, where there are beautiful beaches, amazing seafront restaurants, and ancient ruins to be explored.
