Things to do

Hire a vintage convertible and enjoy the stunning scenery of Yorkshire with a stylish self-drive, classic car rental. Choices range from an Aston Martin to an MG, making these cars the perfect transport for an unforgettable day out or special occasion.

Swinton Estate in the Yorkshire Dales offer some of the most extensive shooting in the UK, with 20,000 acres of woodlands and valleys that stretch from the River Ure in Wensleydale up onto the moorland Dales.

For a fabulous afternoon tea and unparalleled service, head to the Drawing Room restaurant at Oulton Hall. The Butler will serve a selection of sandwiches, delicious pastries and house speciality rhubarb scones, accompanied by the finest leaf teas.

Enjoy horse riding through fields, ancient woods, streams and miles of glorious Yorkshire moorland and with the sea nearly always in sight, I'm sure Lady Grantham would recommend such a delightful afternoon.
