Experience the magical landscapes of the North York Moors
National Park with a stay in one of our Kirkbymoorside holiday
Exuding a village-like atmosphere, this charming market town
(meaning church-by-the-moorside) is a popular choice with visitors
and offers a very warm welcome whatever the time of year.
It features a lovely cobble-lined main street flanked with
Georgian townhouses and stone cottages, a good choice of pubs and
restaurants, as well as shops to accommodate your holiday needs.
There's also a weekly market every Wednesday. Interested in
history? Look out for All Saints' Church, with its Saxon and
Norman roots, and the timbered Black Swan Inn dating from 1632.
Over the years two castles have stood in town and a walk to the top
of Vivers Hill - one of the original castle sites - offers glorious
views over town and the Vale of Pickering.
Attractions close by include the magnificent Rievaulx Abbey at
Helmsley and the Ryedale Folk Museum at Hutton-le-Hole. A little
further afield but still an easy day-trip are Castle Howard and the
seaside resort of Scarborough.
The breathtaking National Park is just a mile from
Kirkbymoorside and an absolute delight to explore whether your
preferred method is walking, cycling, riding, golfing or driving.
The wild, sweeping expanses of heather-clad moorland will take your
breath away and whichever way you go, you'll come across
picturesque villages steeped in tradition.
And don't forget to check local listings for performances by
the town's award-winning brass band - the icing on the cake of
any Kirkbymoorside cottage holiday!
