With the launch of our new guided walking breaks based in the picturesque North Yorkshire market town of Malton, we’ve put together a ‘high-5’ list of reasons to visit:

1.     For fantastic walking packed with interest

Malton is ideally located just a stone’s throw from the North York Moors National Park and on the edge of the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is often bypassed by visitors.

So, with stunning moorland, tranquil river valleys, rolling hills, picturesque villages and historical monuments to keep the interest levels high, this really is an area that packs it in.

2.     For devouring foodie treats in Yorkshire’s Food Capital

Celebrity chef Antonion Carluccio first coined the phrase: ‘Yorkshire’s Food Capital’ after visiting Malton, and with good reason.

With a growing community of artisan ‘Made In Malton’ producers, monthly food market, cookery school and great meals served at The Talbot hotel, it’s a real foodie-heaven (and let’s face it after a day’s walking you can safely indulge in a few treats).

3.     For reviving tired limbs in luxury

Where better to rest and revive tired legs after a day’s rambling than The Talbot Hotel.

Dating back to 1739, The Talbot is all about relaxation from the moment you walk in and it continues Malton’s passion for good food with chefs who love nothing more than turning local ingredients into dishes packed with flavour.

Castle Howard

4.     For seeing one of Britain’s best stately homes

Castle Howard is one of Britain’s best-loved stately homes and is right on the doorstep of Malton. If you remember Brideshead Revisited or BBC’s ‘Death Comes To Pemberley’ then you’ll immediately recognise the grand façade.

With 1,000 acres of beautiful parkland to explore, dotted with statues, follies and monuments such as the Mausoleum and the Temple of the Four Winds, there is plenty to see as you stroll along.

5.     For being immersed in history

If Castle Howard and the living history on the North Yorks Moors hasn’t satisfied the historical hunger, then how about taking time to visit the award-winning Eden Camp Modern History Museum in Malton?

Housed in the grounds of an original World War Two prisoner of war camp, more than 30 huts tell the story of life during the war.

To explore Malton in style and luxury, join a walking break from Large Outdoors, staying in the Talbot and exploring the North York Moors and Howardian Hills.
