In the heart of
The North York Moors
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.
We are situated in a beautiful spot at one end of the village. There are many beautiful walks straight out the door, the footpath down to the Mallyan waterfall is next door, or you can also head that way and go off towards Beckhole, and even join the old railway line and walk right to Grosmont. A ten minute stroll down the road will take you to the sweet little row of shops and tea rooms in the centre of the village. From here you can head down to the North York Moors steam railway and watch the locomotives go by (as seen in Harry Potter!) There is a bus stop right outside the cottage, head north for Whitby, or south for Pickering / Malton / York.
You can access Goathland by car, the Coastliner bus line (Timetables & Maps – Coastliner), and also steam train! There is plenty to see and do in the village if you like walking and soaking up the scenes. There are however lots of beautiful villages and towns nearby, which you would be best having a car to get to.
