Northern England region
The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline. A haven for walkers, the area also boasts great cycling, gliding, riding and fishing, whilst North York Moors Railway is the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful scenery in a more relaxed setting.
Visit the market towns of Pickering or Thirsk; the latter famous for its links with the English country vet and author, James Herriot. Nearby, some of Yorkshire’s best-loved villages including Thornton-le-Dale and Rosedale Abbey offer a taste of village life, as does Goathland, ‘Aidensfield’ in the TV series ‘Heartbeat’. Finally, stop off at Castle Howard and Duncombe Park, two of Britain’s most historic stately homes situated in breathtaking parklands and gardens.
The cliffs, sandy beaches and smugglers’ caves of the Yorkshire coastline are a haven for beachcombers and coastal walkers. Discover the quaint fishing villages of Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes, with their brightly coloured fishing boats. Finally, there’s the historic city of York, with its interactive Viking Centre, Roman walls, medieval streets, vibrant shops and gothic York Minster cathedral.
Cliff top walks afford breathtaking views across the North Yorkshire coastline as far as the historic port of Whitby, known for its connections with Captain James Cook and the novel of Dracula, written by Bram Stoker. Dracula was published in 1897 with many of the early chapters recognisably set in Whitby - the various sites including Tate Hill Sands, the abbey, the church and its steps, the graveyard and Stoker’s house which have all become huge tourist attractions and are well worth a visit. The Captain Cook Memorial Museum and the Whitby Lifeboat Museum are also of interest. The North Yorkshire Moors National Railway can be boarded to discover the delights and beauty of the Esk Valley, travelling through Heartbeat’s very own village of Aidensfield. This truly is an ideal location for exploring Yorkshire’s Heritage Coastline with Whitby just 9 miles and Filey and Bridlington a little further. Scarborough is also located on this coastline and is the oldest resort in the country, offering Scarborough Castle, just east of the town centre and between two golden sandy bays, many interesting museums and of course the bays with many amusements, Sea Life Centre, cruises and boat trips. The beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors National Parks await exploration, with pretty little villages such as Lealholm, Rosedale, Egton, Danby and Castleton tucked away in the valleys. Shop 1½ miles.

"Great Family Let"
Our group comprised us two pensioners, our eldest son and wife, middle son, wife and three infants and youngest son - and this hit the spot pretty perfectly. The place was beautifully presented with a big safe garden for the kids. We put middle son, wife and kids in the master suite upstairs - a huge bed sitting room that took an extra 3 travelling cots with no problem. The lovely sandy beach was a steep walk (or a short car trip) away but not too far, the three year old managed down and up without needing to be carried. The butcher in the nearby village is fantastic - super Tbone steaks an inch thick, yummy sausages, all at a price better than supermarkets. A Tesco delivery provided the bulk of what we needed during the week. Parking several cars, no problem. An Aga to cook with - heaven - the roasts came out mmmm. Top of the range fan oven/microwave for the less ambitious. Great base for day trips to the not too distant themeparks and aquarium. Local fresh seafood from Whitby. Fossil hunting on the beach - where almost every rock has a fossil in it. Great walks along the coastal path. Super views. Bus stop to Whitby just yards from the door. Ground floor bedrooms great for wheelchairs. Light and airy with masses of windows. We loved it and plan to stay again!
