Brayton Barff can be reached by travelling a few miles to the west of Selby, just south-east of Thorpe Willoughby. Yorkshire Water’s free car park is off Barff Lane, less than a mile to the west of Brayton (please note - there is a height barrier at the entrance). This woodland surrounding a covered reservoir is frequently visited for recreational activities such as walking, admiring the scenery and bird watching.
The undulating paths around the site are wide and well-surfaced, with no barriers to access for wheelchair and pushchair users such as steps and stiles. Climbing to the top of the hill offers visitors a rare viewpoint of the surrounding area, with its significant height relative to the miles and miles of flat land around it.
