Dalby Activity Centre

Dalby Activity Centre is a great place to experience exciting new outdoor sports.

Whilst there is lots to do for big kids including paintballing and airsoft (visit the website here), there is also lots for the smaller members of the family too.

New for 2019, is Battle Royal, outdoor laser combat, suitable for ages 7yrs & up

Play your favourite online games in real life. Unlike paintballing, no bruises or no steamy masks. Easy to play and run around with lightweight high tech gaming guns. Each game play is adapted to your group – it certainly is not a case of one size fits all, we want to ensure you have a great experience. Plus, there can be a competitive aspect too with personalised battle stats – Who’s your best soldier?

Other activities include Archery, Tree Climb, Orienteering, Low Ropes Course, Nite Line, Gladiator Climb and Environmental Activities (including mini beast hunting and shelter building). These are all suitable for the over 8 years. You can tailor your own multi activities doing up to four activities in just one day, or two in a half day. Visit the website here for more information.

North Yorkshire Water Park

One of the largest natural sports lakes in North Yorkshire, we offer a range of fun, relaxing and exciting activities for everyone to enjoy. You can challenge yourself, learn a new skill or make a splash! Nestled in picturesque countryside, we are just off the A170, near Wykeham.

Have a go at kayaking, test your balance on a stand-up paddle board or learn to sail, take a dip and go for an open water swim or take a peaceful trip on one of our electric mini ships or pedalos.

Get away from it all on our 2.5km all-terrain walking and cycle track around the lake (FREE to use) whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings. Take a bike ride along one of our cycle tracks or wind down with a relaxing walk whilst taking in the picturesque views. We are dog friendly too so bring yours along! Please note all dogs must be kept on a lead to avoid disturbing nesting birds and wildlife.

Finish off your day with a blast on our ever popular Aquapark, with some of the largest inflatable slides, climbing walls and trampolines in the region.

Family friendly cafe on site offering a selection of hot and cold food and drink. Enjoy the view and a cup of tea even if not partaking in any activities. All welcome.

Zog at Dalby Forest

Zog is a loveable, if somewhat clumsy dragon at Dragon School who is always striving to win a golden star. Zog is learning lots of essential dragon skills at school including flying, roaring, breathing fire and capturing princesses! Forestry Commission England are now inviting children to step into the forest classroom to learn lessons just like Zog, including how animals fly, what sounds they make and how they catch their prey!

As well as winning gold stars along the self-led trail, there will be reveal panels which have a hidden image that children can find using a coloured lens in their activity pack. Available to buy for just £3 the activity pack will also include a Zog mask, activity sheets a pencil and stickers.

Further details of trails and free downloadable activity sheets are available from www.forestryengland.uk/zog

Hutton Le Hole

‘We used to go to Hutton-le-hole as kids. Fab little streams to play in. Best in the summer months to take a picnic’
LH March 2017

“Visit Hutton le Hole on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors for a lovely family day out.
Bring a picnic and have a paddle in the pretty beck that runs through the village. There’s parking, a pub and shops selling ice cream. One of our favourite places!”

May Beck and Falling Foss

If ever there was a magical woodland walk, this is it. Take the trail through the trees on a 2-mile circular route that passes an idyllic woodland tea garden and the 30-foot Falling Foss waterfall, before returning alongside babbling May Beck. It’s a lovely shady walk for summer – with shallow waters to paddle in, and a bridge to play pooh-sticks from – and spectacular in autumn when the woodland colours are at their best. If you don’t intend to venture far from the tea garden and waterfall, you can use an alternative car park near Falling Foss instead.
