The barn provides an excellent base for couples who enjoy walking and cycling and a network of cycle routes exist across the moors and dales, and step a few yards outside of the door and you can be walking through the heather on Glaisdale Rigg or enjoying the hundreds of paths and trails throughout the area. The romantic Beggars Bridge is only two miles away and from there a walk through Arnecliff woods will take you to Egton Bridge with its salmon pool and giant redwood trees. The North York Moors Steam Railway runs from Grosmont, just a few miles away, and offers a nostalgic journey through stunning moorland and forest scenery to the market town of Pickering. Also a short drive away is the village of Goathland, better known as ‘Aidensfield’ of TV’s Heartbeat drama series, where many familiar locations can be seen. The steam railway stops here too and, in the summer months visits Glaisdales’ nearest town - the historic fishing port of Whitby which is about 10 miles away. The areas rich seafaring and smuggling history is much in evidence along the miles of heritage coastline which also forms part of the Cleveland Way long distance walk.
