Favourite place: Langsett Reservoir
Langsett Reservoir is a picturesque scenic walk, perfect for dogs and families. It is lovely being surrounded by wildlife and the forest and it’s a great place to escape to if you’re looking for some peace and quiet.

Favourite Place: Runswick Bay
One of my favourite places is Runswick Bay because it is so stunning, on a gorgeous day it’s hard to beat for your seaside fix. It is a bit of a long and steep walk down the hill, but it’s so worth it!

My favourite place is York and itt’s cathedral, city walls, museums and parks. It is also great for shopping and has lots of fantastic pubs, cafes and restaurants.

Favourite Place: Barden and Bolton Abbey
Barden and Bolton Abbey are not just my favourite places in Yorkshire, but perhaps the world. I’ve had many special family times at these places – picnics, skimming stones, paddling and just being together.
