Go over the stile in our back garden and take the footpath
across one field and you are in Studley Royal Deer Park
a mile from the entrance to Fountains Abbey.
For the longer run on the second day, I usually drive you into the Dales. A drive of 30 - 40 minutes and we are in Wharfedale or Wensleydale with its fantastic upland limestone trails and magnificent views. Often we park near a cafe for a pot of tea and a much-needed scone after the run.
