The Seasons

In Autumn, the Moors return to their brooding best; with browns, rusts and grey dominating the landscape colour palette. And the North Sea at Whitby is often tempestious as Autumn draws in.

Quieter since the kids are back at school and summer visitors have returned home, now is the season to take in the cultural heritage which abounds in the area; and for visits to cosy Yorkshire pubs and eateries.

Rosedale Abbey Last Autumn Colour in the Avenue

Autumn Colours in Rosedale Abbey and Whitby Are Striking.

Castle Howard, the magnificent dissolute Monasteries, Priories and Abbeys, great stone Castles at Scarborough, Pickering, and Helmsley; Ryedale Folk Museum; and the majestic City of York are all within an hour by car from Rosedale Abbey or Whitby.

Aine How Cross Rosedale

Retiree's Walk Towards Ana Howe Cross on the Yorkshire Moors.

Autumn is a great time to get out walking on the North York Moors.

It's also an ideal time for a cycling break as there is not so much traffic on the already-quiet country roads of the North York Moors and Heritage Coast Villages.
