Northern England region
The North York Moors National Park lies just inland from the North Yorkshire coastal resorts of Whitby and Scarborough and has 1,400 miles of trails, footpaths and bridleways, surrounded by heather clad rolling moor land dotted with pretty rural villages and historic country towns. Carving a pathway deep through the North York Moors is the famous North Yorkshire Moors steam railway, which carries passengers from Pickering in the south, north to Grosmont and then along the lovely Esk Valley to Whitby on the coast. This area handy for those who want to experience the many aspects that Yorkshire has to offer with easy access to both the Yorkshire Coast and Yorkshire Dales.
The area is also a haven for walkers with many challenging footpaths direct from your doorstep including a lovely scenic walk close by from Clay Bank car park to Round Hill, the highest point on the North York Moors with one of the best view points, and the area of Bilsdale is widely renowned for the spectacular views of the surrounding area. The famous 110 mile Cleveland Way is also located just a stones' throw from the property. The elegant town of Stokesley is 10 miles away and is situated on the River Leven at the foot of the Cleveland Hills and is the gateway to the Moors and the East Yorkshire coast. Travelling 10 miles south you can appreciate other beautiful areas within the National Park such as the beautiful market town of Helmsley with its own impressive castle and the 12th century ruins that towers over the town. On route to Helmsley you must visit the stunning Rievaulx Abbey which is the perfect choice for a peaceful and tranquil day out.
