Cycling here

Whilst Scampston lies just to the north of the A64, there are plenty of routes from Malton station, or further afield which allow you to avoid busy roads and to take in spectacular scenery.

Alternatively there is a cycle route which runs parallel to the A64, offering a safe but more direct route.

For a pleasant, family friendly cycle we would recommend taking the Wolds Way Cycle route. If joining in Malton, follow Langton Road from the station, and join the route on Langley Drive. Leave the cycle route at Settrington and follow signs for Scagglethorpe. At Scagglethorpe join the A64 cycle path towards Rillington. After passing the village centre and the Coach & Horses pub, take a left hand turning up Sands Lane. You will then be able to follow signs to Scampston Walled Garden.
