Savour a gentle pace of life and retreat to a Danby holiday
cottage in the pretty village of Danby, gateway to the North York
Moors National Park.
Lovers of the countryside adore this stunning region - and with good reason. Woodland, moorland, farmland, dry-stone walls, interesting old buildings - everything you could wish for is here amidst a gloriously tranquil setting.
Make your first port of call The Moors National Park Centre, an award-winning visitor centre on the banks of the Esk offering all kinds of information on things to see and do in the area, including the best walks and cycle routes. There's also an indoor climbing wall, outdoor play area, gift shop, tearoom and more. And do save time for a stroll through Crow Wood in the Centre's grounds, a natural playground for squirrels and birds and carpeted with daffodils in spring.
For the best views, head to the top of Danby Beacon or walk across Duck Bridge, a fine example of a single arched medieval packhorse bridge, and then on up the hill to Danby Castle, former home of Catherine Parr.
Explore the village and stock up with delicious breads and cakes from the local bakery, or sample tasty delights at the traditional inn. Talking of pubs, the oldest one for miles around can be found in the nearby village of Ainthorpe.
And don't forget a daytrip to Whitby on the scenic Esk Valley Railway. That's the great thing about a Danby cottage holiday - you're in the middle of spectacular countryside, yet only a stone's throw from the coast.
