Heartbeat Country

Goathland, otherwise known as Aidensfield,
is the setting for the TV seres Heartbeat.
Just a short stroll away from the cottages
you will see the Aidensfield Arms, Scripps
Garage and other beloved sights from the
ITV series.

The North York Moors Steam Railway

Goathland station is only ten minutes walk
from the cottages and is one of the stops
on the North Yorkshire Moors Steam
Railway line. As well as featuring in
Heartbeat it was also used as Hogsmeade
station in Harry Potter. A day trip on the
train is the traditional way to enjoy the
sights and history of the North Yorkshire


village of Whitby. Whitby has beautiful
beaches, great activities for the whole family
and possibly the best fish and chips in the
entire world!


A  wonderful little seaside village. Home to
the Lovely Hart Inn here you can get a great
lunch or if you prefer a spot of afternoon tea
and cake you could try Raithwaites Country
House Hotel.

Robin Hoods Bay

This famous seaside village has so much to
offer. As well as the restaurants, pubs, cafés
and shops there is Saint Stephens Church,
the Robin Hoods Bay Museum and the
breathtaking view of the bay.
