Located in the foothills of the North Yorkshire Moors and covering over 2,000 acres of North Yorkshire valley, farmland and woodland, Ampleforth appears remote and hidden away. However, main road links from Thirsk, Harrogate, York, Pickering and Northallerton make us surprisingly accessible.
We are just a 45 minute drive from the centre of York, 50 minutes from Harrogate and 25 minutes from Thirsk by car. If you are planning to arrive by coach, please contact us before arrival. Please note, we have a 10mph speed limit on site and we ask that drivers adhere to the speed restriction to ensure the safety to all pedestrians on site. All cars should be parked in designated parking areas. We are a non-smoking site.
