Towns & Villages
We have included details about some of the towns and villages within an easy drive that you may consider visiting including Scarborough and Whitby on the coast, York with its fabulous historic buildings as well as Helmsley and Thornton-le-Dale. The lists are by no means exhaustive but might help you if you want to plan your holiday in advance.
Pickering

Pickering

Pickering is a lovely market town and home to the North Yorkshire Steam Railway. It is also a great base from which to enjoy the area being within easy drive of the coast, the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and the many places to visit Castle Howard and Duncombe Park to name two of many.

Helmsley

Helmsley

One of North Yorkshire's most popular market towns, Helmsley is situated on the banks of the River Rye, from which Ryedale takes its name.

Scarborough

Scarborough

Scarborough is about 15 miles from Pickering and is lively seaside town which has improved greatly over recent years, certainly there is now some good shopping and eateries as well as lovely beaches. The town can be divided into north and south bays, with the castle ruins on the headland separating the two. Both have excellent beaches.

Thornton-le-Dale

Thornton-le-Dale

One of the lovliest villages in North Yorkshire and an ideal place to visit whilst on holiday. It is located about 5 miles from Pickering on the A170.
The village has a wide range of cafés, restaurants, pubs, shops and galleries. Sit by the village pond and look at the wildlife while you eat your ice cream, its very much the done thing to call at Thornton-le-Dale for your ice cream either homemade or whippy depending on you taste (highly recommended!).

Whitby
Whitby

Whitby is surrounded by moors on three sides and the North Sea on the other, the town
is full of character and is certainly worth a visit. If you staying for a week then its always best to visit midweek as the weekends do get very busy.

York

York

York, one of the most attractive cities in the U.K. and less than an hours drive from any of the cottages, parking is expensive but the Park and Ride system is excellent and highly recommended.
