Surrounding Area

We truly feel blessed to be in such a lovely location here on the edge of the North York Moors – some of the most stunning and dramatic landsape England has to offer.

A short drive and you can visit bustling market towns, such as Pickering and Malton… and if that wasn’t enough, we are only six miles from the Coast too, where you can visit the seaside towns of Scarborough, Whitby, Filey and Bridlington. Plus lots of smaller, quaint coastal villages to explore, such as Robin Hoods Bay, Staithes and Runswick Bay.


Whilst perhaps most famous for its tourist attractions, like the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Medieval Castle, Beck Isle Museum and the stunning Saxon Church with its world-famous 15th century wall paintings, Pickering has much, much more to offer.

A thriving town with a vibrant, active local community, the town’s historic market place is packed with excellent independent retail businesses offering everything from bikes and outdoor gear, local produce and crafts, and antiques and gifts.


From the rugged rocky headland and colourful seaside traditions of the South Bay, to the bright beach huts of the award-winning sandy North Bay, Scarborough has all the ingredients you need for a classic beachside break.


From the atmospheric Abbey towering over winding cobbled streets to the windswept beach and working harbour, Whitby is not your traditional coastal town. An Enjoy England award winner for Best Day Out, be sure to sample Yorkshire’s best fish and chips, discover ancient vampire legends and sit under the whale bone arch, watching the brightly coloured fishing vessels passing by.


Renowned for its exquisite architecture, Gothic cathedral and tangle of quaint cobbled streets, historic York is the setting for a perfect romantic retreat. But as old meets new, the city also has many surprises in store as vibrant cafés, colourful street entertainers and boutique shopping lie waiting to be discovered.


Malton is Yorkshire’s Food Capital, a town dedicated to showcasing the very best of the region’s food and drink, attracting the country’s top chefs and producers to its famous food festivals, and with a staggering wealth of artisan shops in its market square.

So many attractions and days out for kids and adults alike
