Leighton Reservoir and Druids Temple circular walk

General

  • Pub site with 17th-century inn and moor/vale views
  • Easily reachable from the A1, two miles from Masham
  • Walks starting directly from the site: route copies available

Here’s a site you’ll be happy to swan around: Black Swan Holiday Park is in a hidden spot in the Yorkshire Dales and just next to a 17th-century inn dishing up home-cooked food among views of the moors and the Vale of York. Hurrah, hooray and pass the Black Sheep bitter.

No eating like a bird either: the Black Swan food is properly portioned with plenty to pick from, and there are several veggie options as well as themed evenings such as steak nights (occasionally with non-local samplings like springbok or ostrich). The bar meals are served at lunchtime, with a bistro in the evenings and a roast lunch on Sundays with locally sourced meat and homemade desserts, alongside local and guest ales.

Getting swanwards is simple: the pub is easily reached from the A1 and is in the old village of Fearby, two miles from Masham. Once there, two walks start directly from the site; ask staff for copies of the routes.

Black Swan guests have access to a shower and toilet block; wifi is available on site.

    Friendly,helpful welcome.
    Wonderful views
    Excellent food in the pub and a pretty beer garden
    Great location for walking

    Disliked: 

    We weren't told at the time of booking that the toilet/shower block would be closed.
    The site was very busy and although our pitch was good,if we,d been put in the middle it would have felt very crowded!
    I'd read the review prior to going and asked for a pitch on the lower,less sloping end of the site.Would recommend others doing the same.

Local attractions

Those Black Swan walks first: the pub team has put together details of two local walks direct from your pitch, including a five-mile trek to 19th-century folly The Druid’s Temple, built by a local squire as a mini Stonehenge.

There are walks for all levels in this part of the Yorkshire Dales: if you’re feeling fit, you can stride off into the moorland; if not, ask about the easy riverside strolls nearby. Most Ordnance Survey paths around here are accessible but some aren't well used, so hone your navigational skills before setting off.

Masham is easily reached by foot and has Georgian architecture, two breweries and one of the biggest markets in the area (on Wednesdays and Saturdays); bike hire is available here too.

The Black Swan can be used as a base for beetling around the Yorkshire moors whatever your activity level after a few Yorkshire ales the night before: high ropes adventure courses are at nearby Aerial Extreme, clay pigeon shooting within a mile and off-road 4X4 driving/quad biking nearby for the energetic. The 18-mile route of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway or exploring the many nearby market towns are topping options for the more moderately minded.

You may of course have no say in deciding your activity levels/options if the kids are with you; if so, you’ll probably end up at Lightwater Valley eight miles away, home of the country’s first Angry Birds activity park and with a farm park and falconry. And even culture-resistant kids should like the Beamish living museum in Co Durham with its regular events and costumed guides…

Must see

  • Jervaulx Abbey (5.2 kilometres)
  • Fountains Abbey (14.3 kilometres)
  • Richmond Castle (19.9 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Braithwaite Hall (8.3 kilometres)
  • Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden (14.3 kilometres)
