The play area

General

  • Family-friendly park near Leyburn with 18-hole golf course on site
  • Within 20 minutes' drive of Richmond Castle and Jervaulx Abbey
  • Traditional Yorkshire pub on site serving food, local ales and wine

Golf fans, Akebar Park near Leyburn in North Yorkshire will suit you down to a tee: an 18-hole course sits here for lengthy hours of teeing off.

History fans, Akebar Park will suit you down to a tee too, as it's within easy reach of some of North Yorkshire's top history highlights – Richmond Castle and Jervaulx Abbey are within 20 minutes – and the park's between the historic houses, museums and ancient landscapes of the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales national parks.

Also sorted are nature fans (Akebar's in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), kids (there's a play park at this fab family-friendly site), and dogs – a three-acre canine exercise area awaits.

Akebar Park has been run by the same family for over 35 years and was recently taken over in ownership and management by the family's latest generation.

Also on site is the lovely-looking stone-built Friar's Head pub and restaurant serving bar lunches and evening meals – beer garden, blazing log fire and Yorkshire ale fans, this will suit you down to a tee too.

    The Dog exercise fields were perfect for our little dog. All amenities were open although a little restricted due to the current covid rules at the time. It was lovely and peaceful (even during the weekend when the park was full) and a good base to go exploring. Staff were all friendly and happy to help when needed.

Local attractions

Explore abbeys, halls and castles, pick up local produce at farmers' markets, or take off into the countryside for days of hiking, biking and fishing: all are handy from Akebar Park.

Head to Helmsley and East Witton near Ripon for Revaulx and Jervaulx abbeys, both founded in the 12th century by Cisterian monks and both among the wealthiest abbeys in the land until being dissolved by egotistical Henry 8.

Jervaulx Abbey was also the place where Wensleydale cheese originated way back in 1150; see how it's made and have a hefty sample at the Wensleydale Creamery and Visitor Centre near Hawes, then double back on your creamy trail to the Brymor ice-cream dairy near Jervaulx Abbey.

At Leyburn town, find more cheese and heaps of other tasty things at the farmers' market on the fourth Saturday of every month, and heaps of tasteful bits and pieces at its weekly Friday market, antiques centre and art and jewellery galleries. Leyburn's fitness and squash centre allows guests and also has a pool.

On the outskirts of town, permit the kids a day out among the chambers, tunnels and many hidden surprises at fabulously odd The Forbidden Corner in Tupgill Park.
