About this location

The Yorkshire region

The North York Moors National Park and the Yorkshire Heritage Coast (Scarborough, Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay) form the regional setting for Keeper's Cottage. In season, Farndale's show of daffodils and The Moors' cover of heather are irresistible attractions for visitors from the four corners of the world. This is walking and cycling country which is difficult to better anywhere in Britain. Historic York is within an easy hours drive and closer, you will find a host of picturesque market towns and tourist attractions to visit.

Gillamoor

Gillamoor remains an unspoiled working village, through which sheep are regularly herded and farmers are seen going about their daily tasks. There are three farms within the village boundary.

At one end of the village, the picturesque church of St Aidan sits on 'Surprise View', which is a dramatic and panoramic view of the moors.

Although perched on the edge of the North York Moors, Gillamoor has easy access to Kirkbymoorside (2 miles) and Pickering (10 Miles) where there are a variety of food shops and supermarkets for general provisions.

Our lovely local inn & excellent country restaurant, 'The Royal Oak', is 50 yards away from the cottage door. It is renowned for the quality of its food & beers and visitors often remark on its value for money.
