Northern England region
Red House Farm, Glaisdale, is situated in the Esk Valley in the North York Moors National Park.
THE NORTH YORK MOORS NATIONAL PARK
The North York Moors was designated as a National Park 60 years ago in 1952, because of its beautiful unspoilt countryside, its magnificent coastline, and its wealth of architectural interest.
The speciality of the NYMNP is that it contains not only the largest tract of heather moorland in all of England and Wales, but also has a great variety of landscapes, woodland, forests, high coastal cliffs, rivers and wetlands and the traditionally farmed dales with their picturesque drystone walls.
THE ESK VALLEY
Red House Farm, Glaisdale, is situated in the Esk Valley (the River Esk being Yorkshire's only salmon river) and is about 8 miles from the coast at Whitby.
Red House Farm is in the quiet, peaceful unspoilt valley of Glaisdale Dale, ideal for walking, riding and, I think, cycling, although most visitors look at the hills and argue. We are in easy reach of the coast, and historic cities such as York are only little more than an hour's drive away from Red House Farm.
The village pub is a 15-minute downhill walk about 3/4 of a mile away from Red House Farm and serves meals all days. The village has a good butcher's shop, but for something special, it's worth taking a trip to Radford's Butchers and Delicatesson in Sleights, which is twenty minutes away from Red House Farm. It's a good idea to bring a cool box to stock up. The village shops in both Glaisdale and Lealholm can see to all your needs, so your holiday cottage at Red House Farm could be stocked ready for your arrival. Self-catering without trouble! We are happy to arrange this if you give us a week's notice. Whitby seafood is well known, as the eating places in and around the town are many and varied with the upper end showing much improvement lately.
