The historic fishing village of Whitby, having a magnificent beach, safe bathing and varied holiday pastimes, is located in a prime position on the North Yorkshire Coast.

In cultivated dales and valleys, small streams slowly flow down to meet the River Esk through tiny hamlets. For nature lovers, the moor and coast offer fantastic scenic views with secluded picnic spots and a variety of nature trails. The high rugged cliffs and coastline provides fascinating panoramas of small sandy coves, interspersed with the sea cliffs which rise some 600ft. to meet the moorland. At the base of some of these cliffs, or precariously perched on the sides there are unique fishing villages and old smuggling centres such as Staithes.

Runswick Bay or Robin Hood's Bay, offer striking comparison to the moorland villages such as Goathland, famous as Aidensfield Village in Heartbeat, Danby or Castleton, where sheep and curlew are sometimes your only company.

There is a galaxy of historic abbeys, monasteries, priories and castles within the area while sections of the original Roman Road still remain on the moor, as well as many moorland crosses, which acted as traveller's signposts, passing points or centres of religious ceremony in days gone by.

Fishing can be enjoyed at sea, from the River Esk and reservoirs. Many local fishermen offer pleasure boat trips or fishing parties departing from Whitby harbour daily. There are a number of horse-riding establishments and golf courses in the vicinity. Steam locomotives of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway can carry you through the unique ice-age valleys of the National Park whilst inland and in Whitby itself, local craftsmen still produce take-home souvenirs such as wood carving, pottery, jet jewellery, paintings and craft items.

Slightly inland is the beautiful North Yorks Moors National Park. The perimeter of which is readily accessible from the network of major roads. Once within the park's 550 square miles of forests and wild moorland which rises to a plateau height of 1000ft there is a magical air of peace, quietness and solitude.
