Description

Enjoy your holiday in the beautiful setting of the North York Moors National Park. This stunning, terraced mews cottage, adjacent to the owner’s home, is located in the centre of the village of Castleton, North Yorkshire. This cosy cottage can accommodate up to four people in two bedrooms. The village shop is close by and there are two local pubs within walking distance. From the doorstep, you can see everything that makes the North York Moors National Park so unique. It has moorland, woodland, farmland, miles of hedges and drystone walls – all enjoying glorious peace and quiet. Castleton village was on the route of the Le Tour De Yorkshire in 2015 and 2016, and you can cycle part of the route across stunning moorland and challenging climbs. For mountain bikers, Dalby Forest and its famous bike trail is just 30 minutes away. Castleton is a centre for walking, cycling, birdwatching, shooting and many other pursuits. Enjoy the views of the North York Moors National Park on foot, with moorland, paths and bridleways winding across the landscape.
Whitby, 17 miles away, is famous for its 199 steps to Whitby Abbey, Goth festival, fish and chips and of course, Bram Stoker’s ’Dracula’. The delightful coastal town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea has plenty of Victorian charm, with the last remaining pier in Yorkshire. The quaint village of Staithes with its higgledy-piggledy cottages and winding streets is worth exploring. This coastal hamlet is now a much loved base for exploring Yorkshire’s cliff top paths and discovering the delights of rock pooling and fossil hunting on the small sandy beach. For more traditional seaside fun, Scarborough has everything you need. For the keen bird watcher there is the RSPB centre at Saltholme, which is famous for its unique landscape and rare birds. Beach 9 miles. Shop 50 yards, pub and restaurant 100 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.
