UK – Studley Royal Park including the Ruins of Fountains Abbey

Ducks are incredibly exciting when you are a year old – especially when they are right on your decking, making a pitch for a bit of your apple.

If babies could write travel features, my one-year-old would definitely hold the ducks right up there as the best thing about Cedar Retreats.

And while I wouldn’t disagree that the flock residing on the peaceful lake are indeed a highlight, there is so much more to the luxury lodge development near Ripon.

Weekend Walk: Studley Park & Fountain’s Abbey; Yorkshire Post

UK of GB and Northern Ireland – Studley Royal Park including the Ruins of Fountains Abbey

This easy walk showcases the lovely countryside in and around Studley Park and provides an elevated view across the beautiful valley of the River Skell and ruin of the great Cistercian monastery, Fountains Abbey. The Abbey (admission charge) was active from 1132 until 1539 and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Studley Park was the estate surrounding a grand Palladian mansion, Studley Royal, destroyed by fire in 1946. The route crosses the deer park and passes one of the ornamental lakes to follow the Skell through the Valley of the Seven Bridges. A bridleway then runs west along the hillside, parallel to the Abbey’s old walls. Beware of a muddy section around Hill House Farm. Look out for Studley’s famous herd of red deer, and for treecreepers and nuthatches in woodland.
