Description

Brookside Cottage is a delightful, terraced cottage that’s perfect for a walking holiday due to its location in the quaint village of Lealholm, in the beautiful North York Moors National Park. The cottage overlooks the River Esk, where there’s some excellent fishing to be had. The garden is fenced and enclosed, making it an excellent environment for children and pets to have a good run-around. Voted as one of the prettiest villages in Yorkshire, Lealholm is like stepping back in time, with its little village school, ducks waddling across the green, stepping stones and an endearing old-world charm. Brookside Cottage is tucked away in a very private area, and provides parking for one car just in front of the cottage.


Whitby is only a short drive away, as is Scarborough, Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes. The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is well worth a ride; travel across the moors in style, passing through pretty hamlets and sleepy villages. And for fans of the Heartbeat, stopping at the village of Grosmont is a must, as it is where the TV series was filmed. Scenic walks can be found leading from the cottage, and they are suitable for leisurely strollers and veteran hikers alike. Sure enough, there’s something for everyone at Brookside Cottage. Fishing nearby. Beach 9 miles. Shop 20 yards, pub and restaurant 80 yards.

About the local area

To the north of York lies the North York Moors, a national park and one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the UK. The area is bordered by the awe-inspiring North Sea coast cliffs and the Cleveland and Hambleton Hills.

Wild and windswept, the landscape of the North York Moors is breathtaking. Visitors will find miles of purple heather moorland, dense pine forests, hills and coastline. The space and solitude of the moors and its hidden valleys contrasts with the busy villages and towns found dotted in and around the area. They provide excellent opportunities to stop for a drink, a meal or for a taste of culture and tradition, from ancient castles to modern day attractions.

Many visit for the outdoor pursuits on offer. There are thousands of kilometres of paths and tracks to follow on the moors, from short strolls to days-long treks. For serious walkers, hikers and cyclists, the North York Moors are crossed by a number of long distance footpaths, including the Cleveland Way and the famed Coast to Coast walk. For a more leisurely but no less stunning experience, travel the 18 mile journey on the steam railway from Grosmont to Pickering, right through the Moors.

Visit popular destinations in and around the national park. Rievaulx Abbey and its landscape gardens are beautiful, while Helmsley and Pickering are both renowned for their ancient castles. For family-friendly options, try the grounds of Castle Howard or the Ryedale Miniature Railway, as well as the coastline dotted with rock pools and gentle waves.
