Old York Forest: View from dog-walking area

General

  • Well-kept park on the edge of Allerthorpe Common
  • A 10-minute drive from Pocklington; York 25 minutes
  • Two nature lakes and one fishing lake, plus dedicated dog-walking area

Looking for your next holiday spot to involve a lake? You've just stumbled on one with three.

Old York Forest is a well-kept spot on the edge of Allerthorpe Common, a 22-acre woodland wildlife haven. As such, this site is a prime pick for those looking to reconnect with nature and ramble through the lovely local countryside.

Four-legged friends are welcome here and have their very own dog-walking zone. Old York Forest is also bike-friendly: there's plenty of scope for cross-country and road cycling in the surrounding area, with a bike washing station back on site where you can hose down any mud collected while pedalling.

Whether coming with or without pets and bikes, couples, families and individuals are sure to find fine things to fill their days hereabouts. Fancy throwing some angling into the mix? One of the site's lakes can be fished in. Away from base, adventure seekers can make for Allerthorpe Lakeland Park (10 minutes' drive), a 53-acre watersports centre, while those curious about the ancient city of York need only travel 25 minutes down the road.

Back on site, there's a recreation area where you can let the kids tire themselves out with outdoor games and picnic spots for indulging in open-air meals. Self-catering here is simple, as there are two supermarkets in the nearby town of Pocklington (10 minutes); there are also pubs in town – and, for that matter, en route in Barmby Moor (five minutes) – if you fancy leaving the cooking to the pros.

Local attractions

Looking for a low-key way to keep the kids entertained? Let them pootle about the pool at the local leisure centre (10 minutes' drive). If you're here in the summer, you may also want to give York Maze (10 minutes) a spin – alongside the maze, there's thrice-daily pig racing to sweeten the deal.

After rambunctious farmyard thrills a calmer green space might be in order. If that's the case, try Burnby Hall Gardens (10 minutes), a splendidly scenic expanse of landscaped grounds best known for its cracking collection of lilies (you can also buy fish food, throw a handful into the lake and marvel at the the bubbling and splashing that follows).

Finally, no trip to Old York Forest would be complete without a trip to old York city (25 minutes) – check out the Jorvik Viking Centre's animatronic take on Viking Britain, stroll past the overhanging timber-clad houses of the Shambles or visit York's Chocolate Story, a museum that explores the city's long-standing connection to the sweet stuff.
