Esca Spa and Beauty is a unique apartment set in the heart of the North York Moors National Park in the beautiful town of Castleton. The apartment is located above a working spa and beauty retreat which is popular with locals and tourists alike. Set over two floors, and even boasting a sauna, perfect for relaxing after a walk across some of the most picturesque countryside on the moors. Castleton is a village on the River Esk where there was once a medieval castle sited on Castle Hill. It is served by Castleton Moor railway station on the Esk Valley Line which in the summer, has a steam train service running through to Whitby. Castleton has a local school, church, chapel and two public houses, as well as a small supermarket, two village shops, post office, tea room and hair salon. Castleton is a centre for walking, birdwatching, cycling and many other pursuits with pathways leaving the village in all directions. From pretty villages to stately homes, mighty abbeys to magical museums, the North York Moors National Park is full of special places to visit, too many to take in during one trip.
The Yorkshire Heritage Coast is just a short journey east, where you can discover some of many coves and bays made famous by famous explorer Captain James Cook. Places such as Robin Hoods Bay, Staithes and Saltburn all have a story of pirates and smuggling to tell and still hold some of their original charm with old inns and fabulous beaches.
The gothic town of Whitby is definitely not to be missed. Home of the famous abbey and its links to Count Dracula, this fishing town is now one of the most popular resorts on the east coast. With 3 miles of golden sands, ancient cobbled backstreets and award winning fish and chip shops, which are open all year round. The bi-annual Goth festival is a must with its amazing costume clad Goths taking over. There is always something happening in Whitby. War weekend in nearby Pickering is a firm favourite when the whole town dresses up in 1940s costume and takes a step back to years gone by. The medieval walled city of York is just an hour away or take a trip to Beamish Museum, Reviaulx Abbey or Flamingoland attractions. There is always something to see in North Yorkshire. If you fancy a bit of pampering, the owner provides hair and beauty treatments at a discounted price. Beach 9 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 50 yards.
