Thank you so much to those of you that have completed questionnaires that we left in the library. Approximately a quarter of our lovely Holiday Home owners got involved and your feedback is priceless.

We have been able to collate a really good list of recommendations of places to walk, eat and shop which we hope will be interesting to new and existing customers.

In addition, we now know that many of our customers are Social Media Savvy and are enjoying the posts and photographs on our Warren Forest Facebook page, with Instagram being a close second!

It was no surprise to realise that the majority of you are National Trust members! Nestled between the two amazing National Trust sites of Brimham Rocks and Fountains Abbey we are confident your membership cards are very well used. Discover Folly, opens this weekend at Fountains Abbey. For more information follow the link below;

Other attractions that were really popular were Harolw Carr Gardens, Thorp Perrow, Kipling Hall, Wensleydale cheese factory, Newby Hall, The Himalayan Gardens and Ripley Castle and Gardens.
