Adjoining one another, Fryup Gill Cottages lie in a stunning setting with the most wonderful, far-reaching views across the Esk Valley. Fryup Dale is a picturesque, peaceful green farming valley in North Yorkshire set around breathtaking countryside of the North York Moors, and is one of seven dales of the River Esk - Great Fryup Dale, Little Fryup Dale, Glaisdale, Rosedale, Danby Dale, Westerdale and Commondale. The Coast to Coast Trail runs at the top of the dale. This is an ideal location for a relaxing break, and also great for walkers and bikers. There are many routes and bridleways amongst wonderful scenery, which looks like a patchwork quilt made up of stone walls, hedges, farms and cottages. The cottages are on the same site as Yorkshire Cycle Hub and a café, where there is a cycle shop and bikes to hire. If you don’t fancy cooking you can have a ‘Great Fryup’ breakfast at the Hub, or enjoy other delicious homemade snacks and cakes and great local coffee.
The cottages are spacious and have all the modern amenities required for a great holiday. Both also have an enclosed garden with seating areas - the perfect place to enjoy the views. They make a perfect base for visiting this stunning area.
The seaside town of Whitby is just 13 miles away, and is famous for its wonderful abbey perched on the cliff top, which is said to have been the inspiration of Bram Stoker’s book, Dracula. There are lots of independent cafés, shops and art studios as well as the shops selling Whitby Jet, an organic gemstone famous in this area. The Cleveland Way goes down this coastline, and for those of you who enjoy walking, there are some fantastic walks along the clifftops from Whitby down to Robin Hood’s Bay. Whitby is also famous for the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway, which runs between Whitby and the market town of Pickering. It runs across the beautiful North York Moors, and you can stop off at Goathland, home to the fictional village ‘Aidensfield’ in the TV programme, ‘Heartbeat’.
Fryup Gill Cottage 2 can be booked together with Fryup Gill Cottage 1 (ref UK10951) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

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.
