There's plenty to do all year round near The Darrington Hotel. For sports fans, we're close to Pontefract Racecourse and Doncaster Racecourse, home of the famous St Ledger Festival, or you can perfect your swing at the Mid Yorkshire Golf Club. It's only half an hour to Leeds, where you'll find Leeds United FC and Leeds Rhinos. Or why not get your skis on at Yorkshire Xscape SnoZone? Leeds also offers fabulous shopping opportunities and plenty of other things to do. If it's nature and the great outdoors you're after, try Frickley Country Park or RSPB Fairburn Ings, or get your history fix with a visit to Temple Newsam House, English Heritage Brodsworth Hall and Gardens, or Lotherton Hall and Gardens.
