HF Holidays Larpool Hall – Family Walking Adventures in Whitby

Here’s my review of a 4 night family walking adventure with HF Holidays at Larpool Hall in Whitby, North Yorkshire.

Driving from Folkestone in Kent to Whitby took us around 6 hours with a few stops along the way.

This was an easy route to follow and made very worthwhile when we entered the North York Moors National Park at Pickering.

Crossing the bridge on the A171 across the River Esk you get a fabulous view down the harbour and up to the Abbey ruins.

As we arrived early to Larpool Hall we decided to walk back down into Whitby and try some of their famous fish and chips.

Whitby is an incredible town, with cobbled streets and friendly faces.

Whitby is famous for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the best fish and chips, Captain Cook and the neighbouring links to Old Jack’s Boat and the Harry Potter films. Phew!

Larpool Hall is a spacious Georgian mansion with splendid views out across the North York Moors and a huge garden at the rear of the house – perfect for hide and seek.

The Discovery Point for self guided walks is right next to the hotel office and there’s normally somebody around to help with questions or queries.

There’s a wonderfully quiet courtyard and a quiet library area too.

For the sociable there’s an open plan bar and seating area that leads in to the main hall, which is where the children’s activities are hosted and the early evening Walk Talks.

This is also where you can choose your meals and sandwiches/salads for your next walk.

At the rear of Larpool Hall there is plenty of outdoor seating and a large game of skittles, a game which became strangely addictive!

In the evening, after dinner, there are plenty of activities for those with energy left or you can simply enjoy the distant sunset and an early night.

We completed three walks during our stay; Staithes to Sandsend, Goathland and Roseberry Topping

We hope you visit Larpool Hall soon and have a great time with HF Holidays too!
