Or hire the gas barbecue for that leisurely alfresco meal! There is a games room with table tennis, pool, snooker and darts and a laundry and drying room all on site.
The area is steeped in history - Beggars Bridge Glaisdale is a 17thC packhorse bridge of romantic origin! From here, a walk through the Arncliffe Woods brings you to the pretty village of Egton Bridge.
