Very comfortable, peaceful and tranquil. Cottage has everything you need from freezer to wifi. Far enough away from beaten track to feel remote yet close enough to everything the moors and surrounding areas has to offer.

About the neighborhood
We are 9 miles from Pickering and a perfect base for those who want to explore the dramatic landscapes and picture postcard villages of the North York Moors National Park. A 45 minute scenic drive will take you over the heather laden moors to the traditional fishing town of Whitby, into the historic City of York, or to the Baroque masterpiece, Castle Howard. The North York Moors Steam Railway stops at Levisham station, a short walk or drive through the forest, and just one stop away is Goathland, probably better known as the Heartbeat TV series village of Aidensfield. We provide our guests with a selection of eateries, local information and things to do, please enquire if you would like us to send you this information.
Getting around
We have plenty of stunning walks & cycle rides available on our doorstep - these take you through the North York Moors National Park, through Cropton forest or through heather strewn moorlands of North Yorkshire. A car is useful if you would like to prefer further afield. The NYMR is 9 miles away in Pickering.
