Yorkshire Sheperdess is visiting the area in 2020

Yorkshire Shepherdess - Scarborough 2020 visit

Amanda Owen - The Yorkshire Shepherdess will be holding an event, talking about her life from teenage Goth to hillside shepherdess and being a mother to 9 children. 

The talk is packed with amusing anecdotes, colourful characters and inspiring stories from her two decades spent farming at Ravenseat. All of this will be delivered with Amanda's trademark energy, humour and charm. 

The talk can include readings from her books, a slideshow, Q&As and an opportunity to really get to know The Yorkshire Shepherdess. 

There are still tickets available for the matinee show at 2pm on Sunday 29th March at Scarborough Spa theatre.

In her three published books, Amanda explains how life is never dull at Ravenseat, the family traditional hill farm in Upper Swaledale!
Having to tend to their sheep, cattle, horses, dogs can get hectic, but Amanda explains that she wouldn't change this traditional way of living for the world, as its virtually disappearing. Living amongst the most glorious scenery, Amanda and her family have the freedom and independence that living off the beaten track brings and that it more than makes up for the harsh challenges they face in the winter months.

In her first book "The Yorkshire Shepherdess", Amanda tells her life story - how as a rebellious girl from Huddersfield, achieved her dreams of becoming the shepherdess she has always wanted to be at Ravenseat, a remote hill farm in North Yorkshire, which covers 2000 acres.

In her second book, "A Year in the Life of the Yorkshire Shepherdess", she describes the age-old cycles of a farming year and the constant challenges her and her family face - as Amanda describes it, life is never dull at Ravenseat!

In the newest book, "Adventures of the Yorkshire Shepherdess", Amanda takes her readers through the surprises of everyday life at Revenseat. From a desperate race to save the life of a missing calf to the horrendous and brutal winter of 2018, but it's not long before a new project catches her eye!!
Ravenseat is a tenant farm and may not stay in the family, so when Amanda discovers a nearby farmhouse for sale, she knows it is her chance to create those all important roots for her children.
The old house needs lots of renovation and with money tight, it's fair to say things do not go according to plan!! 

Swaledale is approx a 2 hour drive from Whitby, by travelling along the moor roads and through little villages makes a great day out on a gloriously sunny day!!

So if you are looking for something to do while you are staying with us here at the park, or looking at booking your holiday in March, then why not come along and go and see Amanda at Scarborough giving her talk!! With her wit and wisdom it's sure going to be a great talk!!
