Another artisan bakery opens its doors in Malton, adding to the Made in Malton brand. Called YO Bakehouse and it’s in Market Street, just off Malton’s market square in the town centre.

Ryedale Countryside

Ryedale Countryside

The fields of corn are looking particularly splendid so I guess it does mean one thing. It's harvest time. And harvesting has begun in Ryedale.

The countryside around Spring Cottage is made up of beautiful rolling hillsides just like this. Dotted with stone-built villages and market towns.

Well worth a visit.

Walking in Ryedale

Walking in Ryedale

There’s a new way of walking in Ryedale

Visit Ryedale have  a new collection of walks and all within easy reach of Spring Cottage.

The walks start from the market towns of Malton, Pickering, Helmsley or Kirbymoorside.   The variety of walks suit all abilities and each walk clearly states the distance and the difficulty level. This means there can be no complaining half way round that “it’s too hard”!

What’s particularly special about this set of walks is that they are digital walking guides. So all you need is your walking boots and your mobile phone.

To follow the walks you need to download the iFootpath app for £1.49 first. (This app gives access to  walks in the other areas as well as these 20 walks in Ryedale.)

For those of you not as digi-savvy, no worries, the walks can also be printed out and you’ll find them all waiting for you at Spring Cottage.

The app is easy to use and GPS tracking meant wrong turns were avoided (one of my biggest walking frustrations).  The printed version of the walk is also described, photographed and mapped in detail so no excuse for talking the wrong path.  Although we did purposely do this at one point, just to see what the GPS did.  It did nothing (disappointingly there was no flashing lights or sirens to tell us).  It just continued to track our path, but moved our blue location dot away from the red line of the route we were meant to take.

Our Walk

My family and I did the 4.5 mile circular walk starting from Malton to Broughton Lane. It took across field and into wooded areas and was very family friendly in terms of no steep climbs and we were walking on tracks or pavements. The corn fields were a delight:

The children enjoyed seeing the gallops too, just before heading into Malton.  We even saw some sheep that looked like cardboard cut-outs. Surely not?walking in Ryedale

Finishing the walk in Malton meant a visit to the delightful tearoom The Hidden Monkey, in Malton’s market place for a well earned tea and cake.

Normally when walking we’d use maps rather than an app. But because we were using an app, junior members within the group were more engaged which of course was a bonus!

So I’d recommend you embrace this new technology and get walking in Ryedale. Or  if you feel more comfortable with a paper map, then no worries, but just get out and about exploring Ryedale’s beautiful countryside and its bustling market towns.

For me, it’s 1 down, 19 to go!  Do leave a review or comments on any of the walks that you do. Take your pick: Walking In Ryedale
