Things To Do in Great Broughton
The North Yorkshire Moors has plenty to offer in the line of outdoor pursuits, making this rural village location a favourite for ramblers, cyclists, hikers, rock climbers or simply those who enjoy vigorous walks with the pet pooch.
From the low dales to the lofty moors the area takes in swathes of both coast and countryside, leaving the visitor and his dog spoilt for choice.
Abutting the 26-miles of Jurassic coastline are peaks and vales, forests and outcrops, all with their very own charm. Saltburn-by-Sea is less than half an hour’s drive from Great Broughton and worth a visit for its traditional fish and chips and, if the wind is right, for some stunning surfers’ displays.
The beach is dog-friendly all year round, making it an ideal destination to give your pet some invigorating exercise along the sand and shoreline.
This isn’t the only beach that welcomes dogs. Type “dog friendly beaches North Yorkshire Moors” into your search engine and there are more than a few websites that will point you in the right direction.
The quaint fishing harbour of Staithes is only a 40-minute drive from Great Broughton and is an ideal destination for young families.
Children will immediately recognise it as Jack and Salty the dog’s home in the CBBC series Old Jack’s Boat. It is not just for the younger set though — it is popular with geologists and fossil hunters and is home to a community of 30 artists, many with their own galleries.
In autumn it hosts an Art Festival where houses and shops become pop-up galleries and cafes. Be warned that the deluge of visitors to this popular event might not be ideal for pooches.
The Sutton Bank three-mile walk mixes history with health and is ideal for our four-legged friends. This woodland trail incorporates the Old Thieves’ High, a popular stomping ground for highway robbers like Dick Turpin.
It’s only a 30 minutes by car from Great Broughton and it’s worth a visit to experience a good balance of history and hiking. For serious hikers there is the Cleveland Way — a tough 21km trek from Great Broughton to Osmotherley with a heady ascent of 2,339 ft. If you and your dog are fit enough, then this could be a challenge to consider.
This is a best-of-both-worlds’ holiday and Holme End is truly a home-from-home for family members of all ages, not forgetting our four-legged additions.
Expect an energetic and invigorating break.
From romantic to rugged seascapes and landscapes; history to healthy holidaying and culture to cuisine, there is little compromise if you choose to take your next break here — pooch and all.
