Lilla Cottage is nestled in the beautiful Esk Valley with stunning views over Westerdale and the open countryside which makes this part of the North York Moors so beautiful. Lilla Cottage was built in the 1800s and still holds some of its original character with a homely feel and stylish touches. There are some excellent footpaths in the area which stretch out across the National Park. A scenic drive along the country roads takes you to some pretty villages dotted around the North Yorkshire Moors, and also to the historic port of Whitby, with its quaint cobbled streets and magnificent abbey. It is also home to the bi-annual Goth festival and the Whitby Regatta. The cobbled back streets of the old town boast numerous bizaares, jet shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as 3 miles of beach to explore. The Victorian seaside town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea is only a short drive away, with its golden sandy beach and lovely promenade, ideal for a stroll on a warm summer’s evening. The North Yorkshire Moors steam train is a great day out for everyone, travelling from Whitby to the market town of Pickering stopping at Grosmont and Goathland (also known as Heartbeat Country) along the way. There are many hidden seaside villages along the Heritage Coast such as Staithes and Robin Hoods Bay, each with their own story to tell. The medieval walled city of York is just over an hour away where you can go back in time at Jorvik Viking Centre and the National Rail Museum. Also nearby are the theme parks of Lightwater Valley and Flamingo Land - fantastic days out for all the family. Beach 13 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 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.
