YHA Boggle Hole is lining up a full programme of family fun throughout the summer holidays that will make the most of the coastal cove and swathe of beach at Boggle

Hole near Robin Hood’s Bay in the North York Moors National Park.

Joining forces with a host of local businesses the YHA is organising three open days where families can get in touch with their inner David Attenborough to explore the natural wonders of Boggle Hole and learn more about the local wildlife.

During the open days on July 25, August 8 and 24, families can go on a seashore safari with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust to hunt out the creatures lurking in the rock pools, find fossils with Hidden Horizons or join the National Trust and National Park on a geocaching exploration of the woodland and cliff top along the Cleveland Way National Trail.

Children can also experience what it’s like to be a kestrel through a series of activities planned by the Hawk and Owl Trust on the first open day.

On other dates throughout the summer holiday YHA will be hosting further nature discovery days, ‘crafternoons’ on topics such as photography and stained glass, and yoga afternoons.

Keith Webster, activities manager for YHA Boggle Hole explains: “With the woodland walks, beach and craggy rocks we have a fantastic natural resource in the National Park that is made for exploring and yet many visitors don’t know it exists.

“The programme we’ve organised aims to entertain the young, and not so young, as well as offering a welcome drink and bite to eat at the Quarterdeck café.”

There is a small fee attached to some of the events and pre-booking is required. Contact the YHA on 01947 880352, email: boggleholeactivities@yha.org.uk or look on www.facebook.com/YHABoggleHole/ for further details.
