Hotels in Harome
Nestled right against the boundary of the North York Moors National Park is the charming village of Harome. It lies about two miles to the south-east of the market town of Helmsley and is roughly a 50-minute drive from the city of York. The village's quaint atmosphere and the area's stunning natural beauty attract plenty of tourists and you'll find a selection of Harome hotels here on the website.
Out and about
Harome is a great place to be based if you're looking to explore the best that the Ryedale District has to offer. The North York Moors National Park is undoubtedly the main attraction in the area, appealing to walkers and nature lovers in particular. Open heather moorland sweeps into ancient woodland and the landscape is dotted with ruined abbeys and majestic sea cliffs. Venture out at night to take in the clear, unpolluted sky.
To the south of the village lie the Howardian Hills, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It's filled with rolling countryside, woodland and a patchwork of arable fields and green pastures.
Pay a visit to the National Trust-owned Nunnington Hall, a wonderful Yorkshire manor house set on the banks of the River Rye. Another impressive stately home close by is Hovingham Hall, an 18th-centruy building owned by the Worsley family who open it up to the public during the month of June.
Helmsley street market takes place each Friday and is certainly worth a look. It's said there has been a market in the town since the 13th century. A craft fair is also typically held at the same time above the Old Town Hall. If you're in the area, drop by Helmsley Castle, a 900-year-old medieval fortress that was turned into a Tudor mansion before becoming a Victorian-era ruin.
