Enjoy a Green Adventure
Many people visit Ryedale each year, attracted by its beautiful landscapes, intriguing wildlife, cultural heritage and the wide range of recreational activities it offers. Home to a National Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and several Sites of Special Scientific Interest it is important to do all we can to conserve the area for all to enjoy. Here are some tips on what you can do while on holiday to help us keep the area special for years to come.
Why not give the driver a break for at least one day of your visit and have a car-free adventure? By letting the bus of the train take the strain, you can focus all your energy on the day ahead rather than the road ahead! If that's not possible, try to have at least one car free day during your stay and discover a whole new world beyond the windscreen!
Hop on the bus for a lot less fuss! The area has an extensive network of buses that run throughout the year and will take you from A to B and plenty of places in between. Make use of the excellent Moorsbus, which connects the main towns in the area with local sights and attractions. Go to www.traveline.org.uk for timetables and help with planning a route.
Step back in time on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and let its heritage steam and diesel trains take you through the moors and out to Whitby.
Enjoy a day out with a difference and explore the area by foot, by bike or on a horse or boat. There are miles and miles of trails criss-crossing the countryside and linking towns and villages that will give you a different and fun view of this beautiful area. Why not give your car a complete break and spend your holiday walking the Cleveland Way or Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trails or cycling the Moor to Sea and White Rose cycle routes.
Around every corner you sample locally grown and produced food at delicatessens, cafes, pubs and restaurants and a wide range of stunning handmade crafts to provide the perfect memento of your visit. By shopping locally you will not only be supporting local skills and businesses but you will also be helping to reduce food miles and traffic which has benefits for all.
If you are staying for a week or more, why not join one of the many volunteer groups - such as those organised by the National Park Authority and the National Trust - for a day and get to grips with a challenging but rewarding conservation task. New faces are always welcome but you will need to contact the relevant organisation beforehand for details.
Help us to protect our wildlife by leaving wild flowers for others to enjoy and avoid disturbing birds and other animals particularly during the breeding season from March until June.
Keep to paths or tracks where possible and use stiles or gates, remembering to leave gates as you find them.
Don't start campfires or drop cigarettes or matches on the moorland and make sure you take all litter home with you. Dogs are more than welcome in many areas but please keep them under close control, preferably on a lead.
