The village of Ampleforth offers visitors to North Yorkshire the best of both worlds. As well as being within the boundary of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, the village lies just 20 miles away from the historic city of York. This means that not only can visitors enjoy the natural beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors and "Heartbeat" country, but the museums and sights of York are within easy reach too.

One of the biggest tourist attractions in the area is Ampleforth Abbey, a Benedictine Monastery founded in 1802. As well as a community of Benedictine monks, the abbey is home to a commercial orchard and leading co-educational school. Visitors can take tours of the Abbey and orchards, or spend the day in the grounds, gift shop and tea rooms.

Amenities in Ampleforth include a post office, a fish and chip shop and two friendly pubs which serve good quality food. The market towns of Thirsk and Malton are also nearby and are well worth visiting during your stay.

Outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty to do in the area - golf fans can hit the green at the nine hole Ampleforth College Golf Club, whilst the National Park offers fantastic walking, cycling and hiking opportunities.
