Description

Cherry Garth is a beautiful detached cottage, perfect for a family getaway. Boasting stunning views of the North York Moors National Park and an enclosed garden that wraps all the way around the property, it is perfect for your furry friends to enjoy. Inside there is a well-equipped kitchen and dining area for the family to enjoy, and a comfortable living room with a wood burner that leads onto the sun room which runs the length of the front of the property. There are three large bedrooms to choose from.

The village of Goathland is just a short walk away, made famous in TVs ’Heartbeat’ where it was known as Aidensfield, it still has that feeling of stepping back in time. You will see plenty of Aidensfield in the village including the traditional local pub and village stores, as well as a steam train station which is famous in its own right as Hogsmeade in the Harry Potter films. There are a number of tea rooms to enjoy, and the local area has a restaurant and bar as well as its own waterfall.

There is an abundance of walkways and cycle routes to enjoy all across the National Park to suit all levels of difficulty, from amateur to championship level routes. The ’Rail Trail’ from Goathland to Grosmont combines a signposted 3½ mile walk down the old railway line, passing the smallest pub in the National Park in nearby Beckhole. You can even catch a ride back up on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. The moors are full of wonderful villages with traditional pubs offering a warm welcome and good food, ancient abbeys and historic market towns.

The Yorkshire coast is simply stunning with hidden bays and coves, such as Robin Hood’s Bay, Staithes and Sandsend. Whitby is just 9 miles away and is definitely worth a visit with its historic abbey stood proudly over the town. Climb the 199 steps to the top in search of Dracula’s gravestone and enjoy the views out to sea, or explore the cobbled back streets with independent traders, coffee shops and delis. There are restaurants from around the world, award-winning fish and chips and traditional ice cream shops. Take a pleasure cruise out in search of minke whales and dolphins, or hop on the open top bus. Neighbouring Scarborough boasts two long bays, a water park and the open air theatre which attracts international stars throughout the summer months. With dog-friendly beaches, stunning historic sites and lots of pubs and cafés fit for humans and hounds, the North York Moors has got everything you need for a dog-friendly holiday. Beach 9 miles.

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.
