In the heart of the North York Moors, Goathland is a gem of a village. We have the rolling moorland on our doorstep, which boasts many delightful walking opportunities, and a mere 20 minute drive will have you by the sea in Whitby.

Goathland is well known for having been used in the television series Heartbeat as ‘Aidensfield’ village, and its steam railway station features in the first Harry Potter film (Cecily’s claim to fame is she featured in both the film, and many episodes of Heartbeat as a child!)

If you choose to come and visit us here at The Homestead, you will soon experience the magic of the moors. Placed at one end of the village, from the front of the premises you will see our lovely village church, a handy bus stop (The Coastliner 840 runs from Leeds to Whitby, taking in York, Malton, Pickering and Goathland along the way) and we are next door to the Mallyan Hotel which serves delightful a la carte meals, bar food, and even has a coffee shop during the day. In between the two of us, is the footpath down to the Mallyan Spout Waterfall, a stunning little spot down by the river. From here, you can also walk across to Beckhole where you will find the smallest pub in Yorkshire, or you can pick up the old rail trail and walk to Grosmont.

From the restaurant room and upstairs of the cottage, you can soak up the wild and ever changing vista of the North York Moors.
