Moorland walks, murder mystery, mouthwatering meals...
Variety is the spice of life they say, and so how’s this for an activity-filled weekend?
Guided walks through some of the best landscape in the North Yorkshire Moors and a Saturday night where we jump aboard the steam train at Grosmont for Yorkshire’s answer to the ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ complete with 3-course dinner.
So if you fancy combining a sociable walking weekend with a spot of acting that would do Agatha Christie proud, then this is for you.
In a nutshell:
Two nights in YHA Dalby Forest, voted one of the cosiest hostels by Cool Places UK.
Guided walks exploring the unique and historical North Yorkshire Moors landscape.
Atmospheric steam train journey in a Pullman dining coach.
Participating in a murder mystery evening.
Spaces on this super popular event are strictly limited to just 20 places...
The weekend starts as soon as you enter the door of our base, the YHA at Lockton in the Dalby Forest. With plenty of comfy sofas, the evening meal being prepared and 19 other like-minded souls to natter with, it will be hard not to relax.
Having enjoyed a hearty breakfast we head out into the moors for a 10-mile walk exploring the rugged beauty of the North York Moors in all its summer glory.
We return to the hostel leaving enough time to chill out before changing into our best 1960’s outfits and jump aboard the North Yorkshire Moors steam Pullman dining train for a murder mystery.
The scene is set: It’s RAF Fylingdales in 1963. Sam Eagle, an American research scientist has been found electrocuted.....is it murder or an accident?
During a 4course meal, the tension builds as the whodunit unravels before your eyes!
Ok, it’s time to drag yourself away from discussing the fate of poor Sam as there’s another day of exploring the rich beauty of the moors, which in summer are hard to beat. So after breakfast we don the walking boots and take to the hills for gentle sunday stroll.
