Everyone deserves a little relaxation and at Eastfield Lodge, we are launching a new break which should provide you with just that. It’s not all sedentary though “as a change is as good as a break,” so they say and there’s much to see in the Dales of North Yorkshire. This is what we propose – see if it appeals.

The three night break includes leisurely breakfasts, a gentle walk within the nearby 20,000 acre estate of Swinton Park, time to enjoy the spa facilities and fine dining, a fun filled paddle paired up in a stable Indian canoe on the calm waters of the canal linking to the River Ure with a “posh picnic” on the river banks, tea and cake, prosecco and canapes and time to escape busy lives surrounded by the peace and tranquillity of Yorkshire.

Bring a small group of up to 12 or come on your own and meet some other like-minded guests to enjoy a luxurious midweek stay at the Lodge.

The Itinerary

Spa, Paddle & Picnic

Itinerary

This three night break will offer an opportunity to relax and feel pampered, explore the beauty of the area, do some gentle exercise, sample good food and drink and with some laughter almost guaranteed. You will be hosted by Henry and Penny, who have themselves enjoyed experiencing and putting together this itinerary.

Monday

Arrive at Eastfield Lodge.

Arrive at Eastfield Lodge in the afternoon for tea and biscuits in the lounge. Settle in, maybe wander up into the lovely Market Town of Leyburn and join us all in the evening for Prosecco and Canapes to meet the other guests and eagerly discuss the days ahead. The two course dinner in the Lodge includes wine and local Yorkshire dishes.

Tuesday

Walk, Spa and Dinner at Swinton Park Estate

A leisurely breakfast allows time to relax, take coffee in the lounge, wander into the town or simply natter to the other guests until we head off to nearby Swinton Park. This Grade II Castle with its extensive parkland is stunning, peaceful and tranquil. The grounds make up one of the largest estates in England with 63 miles of footpaths. We plan to take a gentle guided walk along some of these and to enjoy a picnic lunch under the trees or in one of the Victorian grottos which look out onto the five lakes. In the late afternoon, returning to the country club, you can enjoy tea or perhaps a glass of bubbles before donning robes for the Spa experience. This newly refurbished country club includes an 18 metre indoor pool, hydrotherapy pool, Finnish and herbal sauna, aroma steam room, salt room and foot spas. Additionally the spa garden has a natural pool and cedar hot tub.

The optional beauty treatments can be booked and paid for individually. After a couple of hours feeling relaxed and cleansed, you can enjoy a two course dinner in the Terrace Restaurant of the stately house before being transported back to the Lodge.

Wednesday

Paddle & Picnic from Ripon to Boroughbridge

An earlier breakfast sets us up for some fun on the water! Driving to Ripon, we leave the cars safely by the canal edge and get into buoyancy aids, grab a paddle and eye up our vessels for the day; 16- foot, flat bottomed Indian canoes for two or three people. There is then a short delay while your qualified guides sort out vehicles to the finish point but this can be spent in the little café, The Forge on the waters edge. No paddle experience is required to remain safe and have a great deal of fun canoeing on the calm canal with one person learning to steer and the other powering the boat. There is also no hurry and passers-by walking on the canal path will enjoy the endeavours of our small fleet! The bird life along the river is plentiful and a joy to see as we gently go with the natural flow of the Ure leaving the busier outskirts of Ripon, the oldest city in England, for the open countryside and still quiet meadows. 

At one of the locks along the way, we can leave the water to sit on the banks and enjoy a glass of bubbly, a cool beer or a piping hot cup of tea and a lavish and varied picnic. Whiling away the next hour on the river takes us past Newby Hall and into the haven of the Boroughbridge slipway.

Driving back to Leyburn passes through the Yorkshire countryside to enjoy showers, cake and later a three course dinner at the Lodge with celebratory wine included.

Thursday

Breakfast can be enjoyed at your leisure before taking a stroll along the Leyburn Shawl, visiting the town to pick up some Wensleydale Cheese or simply departing for home feeling relaxed and refreshed.
