How to find us
Stainley House from Ripon:
Postcode – HG3 3LX
From Ripon take the A61 towards Harrogate. You go past the small turn to South Stainley – The Inn is on the left and the garden centre is on the right. Up the hill where there is a short overtaking lane. When the overtaking lane finishes look out for a cream house with dark red railings next to the road on the left. This is your turn – swing wide to get straight for narrow gates then it is a tight right turn over a small bridge. (Don’t worry Eleanor regularly drives a 20′ wagon in) Then it is up the drive taking the left fork signposted Springfield. Park on left next to first building on left. There is no space to tie up outside the wagon so if you need to tack up outside you need to lead horse onto the yard which is through the wooden gates in front of you.
Stainley House from Harrogate:
Take the A 61 towards Ripon and after the second Ripley roundabout look out for the turn to Brearton on the right. This is a warning that the Stainley House turn is approaching. It is the cream house with dark red railings next to the road on the right. Go through gates and follow previous instructions.
We are using the Heritage Training Centre entrance to Thorp Perrow. From Bedale take the B6268 towards Masham. Shortly after leaving Bedale take left turn to Well and Thorp Perrow arboretum. The Heritage entrance is on the left before you reach the arboretum entrance (look out for copper beech next to entrance) Follow track and go past Heritage Training Centre. When track divides take left hand fork over cattle grid into the park – follow track over brow of the hill and you will see xc jumps and plenty of space for parking.
It can also be accessed from the B6267 Masham road by taking the Well turning at the West Tanfield/Well cross roads – going down the bank, through Well and past the arboretum entrance on the righthand side. The heritage entrance is the next turn on the right.
