Make This Half-Term Magical in the Yorkshire Dales

Get the kids out of the house this half-term and whisk them off to a luxury hideaway in the Yorkshire Dales. As we wave farewell to summer, we’re secretly quite excited about donning woolly knits, crisp country walks and pumpkin carving, and we can’t wait for you to join us!

With half-term right around the corner, help your young explorers ditch the iPad, and get knee deep in the great outdoors - summer might be over but there's still plenty to get involved with outdoors! With a stay at our luxury lodges in the Yorkshire Dales, your little ones will be spoilt for choice with all of the half-term adventures available on your doorstep. From crisp walks along the River Swale, to ghouls galore at 'Frightwater Valley', there's something for all to enjoy.


Little Howard's Big Show For Kids at Richmond’s Georgian Theatre Royal (22 October 2017)
Following the success of their popular TV show 'Little Howard’s Big Question' (BBC1/CBBC), Howard Read as Big Howard and his six-year-old animated friend Little Howard are bringing their unique family comedy show to The Georgian Theatre Royal. Little Howard’s big new act keeps going wrong, Roger the Pigeon has spent all their money on cookie cutters; his comedy counterpart Big Howard has been diagnosed with being clinically unfunny; and there’s a slug in the backstage toilet. And it’s about to get worse: a sinister figure arrives and the duo have to put on the best show of their lives to keep themselves out of jail! With interactive stand-up, live animation on stage and lots of jokes and songs, this is a show that all the family can enjoy.
