After a busy day exploring the many public footpaths in the area, return to Poppy Lodge and relax in the private hot tub. This detached lodge is hidden within the grounds of the owner’s caravan park and boasts a private hot tub and a raised decked area, perfect for a peaceful drink and watching the fascinating array of wild birds after a day exploring the delights of the Yorkshire Dales, The North York Moors or the Lake District National Park. Inside the lodge is completely open plan and is warmed by a wood burner, making it a cosy room to snuggle up with a loved one.
The tiny village of Newsham is an unbelievable base equidistant between the east and west coasts of England, and a short drive from the famous Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk, which snakes across the country from the Lake District National Park to Robin Hood’s Bay. Just 1½ miles from a main road, which makes it easy to get out and about, or explore one of the many public footpaths right on your doorstep.
The property lies 7 miles away from the popular Georgian market town of Richmond, with its top quality restaurants, bistros and bars, as well as antique and gift shops. There is a farmers’ market that takes place occasionally on the cobbled market square, as well as numerous tourist attractions to visit including the historic castle that stands high on the hill and overlooks the thriving town below. Also perfect for walkers and cyclists, are many established public footpaths and cycle ways that pass through Kirby Hill and out through open fields, woodland, unspoilt countryside, and further beyond into the famous Yorkshire Dales National Park. Hamsterly Forest is only 13 miles away which is excellent for mountain biking. Within easy reach are many historic houses and National Trust properties.
Barnard Castle is always popular with visitors and looks down to the tumultuous River Tees below, popular with canoeists, anglers and for riverside walks along the Teesdale Way, Deepdale and Flatts Wood. A haven for discerning shoppers and treasure seekers, the town’s many antique shops provide a charming shopping experience. The Lake District National Park is just a 40-minute drive from Poppy Lodge, and some wonderful natural attractions such as High Force Falls and Brimham Rocks are close by too. The walled city of York is less than an hour away, as is the striking Yorkshire Heritage Coast with its wonderful cliffs, beaches and historic fishing towns such as Whitby. Beach 40 miles. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.
