    Had a fabulous week! We usually stay in Whitby but ventured here to Goathland this year and enjoyed staying in this beautiful village much more. All seven of us loved the house, thought it very spacious, ideally located and our best choice ever. It's a very large accommodation and sleeps 12 people (14 if sofa bed downstairs used) hence the expensive nightly/weekly cost but well worth it! Amply equipped and the enormous kitchen was something else. The only one slight criticism is that for a house with such extensive gardens there is no BBQ available which we thought strange. We made the short 10 min drive into Whitby a couple times in the week, an obvious "must" for all when in this area and enjoyed the more adventurous trip  to see the spectacular local Mallyan Spout waterfall. The steam railway from Goathland is also something worth experiencing. Goathland village is a dream whether you are a Heartbeat fan or not, with sheep wandering the village, a few lovely local shops and of course the pub, aka The Aidensfield Arms. We will definitely return!

About the location


Whitby 9 miles.

The idyllic village of Goathland is set on the north eastern edge of the North York Moors National Park. It is surrounded by the rugged open moorlands which provide excellent walking country and on which sheep graze freely. The village has been popularised by the television programme Heartbeat. At the bottom of the village lies the station for the famous North York Moors Steam Railway. Here you can catch a train to Whitby or Pickering and relax as the train winds its way through the moors. Goathland is within easy reach of the East Coast towns of Whitby, Staithes, Robin Hoods Bay and Scarborough, making it a great holiday base.
