Look at these lovely creatures we came across on one of our favourite routes in the nearby village of Gate Helmsley. There is a fabulous farmshop/ tearoom/ pick-your-own nearby if you are feeling peckish. Amazing cakes. Yum!

In addition to the usual sheep, cows, dogs etc you might expect to find on a country walk, these fabulous alpacas make a lovely sight.

Check out the nearby Ballon Tree for great local produce and lovely gifts.
