Plumpton rocks in Yorkshire is a beautiful 30 acre parkland. The opening times are limited so it is best to check the web site here if you plan to visit. Plumpton rocks can be found between Wetherby and Harrogate.
It has had a lot of restoration work done in recent years to restore it to its former glories. It does come with great credentials, Queen Mary described it as Heaven on earth and Turner painted it. A recent version of Swallows and Amazons was filmed there.
Choose from a variety paths to walk. The focus of walking is round the lake. The lake is man made with a dam at one end. You will walk through woodland and between the impressive grit stone rocks. The rocks around the lake are beautiful and have wonderful names such as Lovers leap and Lions den. Finding your way round the paths seems like walking through a maze.
Some of the Yew trees growing are just beautiful and seem to grow through any gap in the rocks.
Rather than having too much of a plan, it is best just to go and explore.
The lake isn’t big but is a beautiful setting and the rocks look magnificent. Go there for a lovely day out and explore.
