Yorkshire Moors

The Yorkshire Moors are legendary for their romance, mystery and stunning scenery. Across 1,430 square kilometres of pure countryside, you can find dramatic cliffs, purple meadows filled with heather, traditional stone villages, and Roman ruins. Whether you are walking, cycling or driving through the park, you are bound to come across something that will stop you in your tracks.

Holiday cottages with pools in the Moors are perfect for getting closer to the natural environment and all its hidden treasures. Hunt for waterfalls between Goathland and Robin Hood’s Bay, or uncover evidence of Viking invasions along the coastal towns of Whitby, Lastingham and Hackness. At night, turn off all the lights and sit by the pool as you gaze up at the stars – the Moors boast some of the darkest skies in Britain so if you time your holiday well, you might even get to witness a meteor shower.

Cottages with pools are also the perfect base for historical tours of Yorkshire. For a whistle stop tour of the area, jump onto a steam train at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and watch the countryside whiz by. Hop off at market towns such as Ripon and Thirsk and imagine that you have gone back in time - the cobbled stones and traditional stores of these towns are so well preserved that they have appeared in many period dramas, including Downton Abbey.

Most of Yorkshire’s finest historical sights are not accessible by public transport, so take a car (or a sturdy pair of walking boots!) and head for Rievaulx Abbey on the coast, or Helmsley Castle to the west of the park. Or simply drive around for a few hours enjoying the scenery, before returning for a relaxing evening at a cottage with a swimming pool.

Above all else, the Moors is a great place to simply get away from it all and relax, and there is nowhere more relaxing than a cottage with a private pool. Once you’ve found a peaceful spot of your own, time will slow down and you will never want to leave.

  • Killerby Old Hall - Yard End House

    Killerby, Cayton, nr. Scarborough

    Ref: IAE

    "Charming cottages situated in a scenic holiday location, which form an ideal base from which to explore the stunning scenery of the North Yorkshire Coast..."

    Killerby Old Hall and its 7 cottages are ideal for a countryside holiday whilst being less than 2 miles from the beach of Cayton Bay. Guests can enjoy the nature reserve and lake area, or relax in the indoor heated swimming pool. The accommodation ranges from the Old Hall, sleeping 10 in period splendour, through to cosy Crow’s Nest which sleeps 2. Set in a pretty courtyard, each cottage is different yet has its own sitting-out area with patio furniture and BBQ.
    Killerby Old Hall is situated between the coastal resorts of family friendly Filey, with its cobble landing and pretty promenade, and Scarborough, with its vibrant South Bay and naturally picturesque North Bay, located on part of Britain’s heritage coast. The Stephen Joseph Theatre, famed throughout the county, puts on a number of Alan Aykbourn productions. To the north, across the stunning North Yorkshire Moors, lies the port of Whitby; famous for its connections to Captain James Cook and Dracula. Robin Hood’s Bay, a former fishing village with a smugglers past, has quaint streets which lead visitors to a small, sandy cove and rock pools. Heading inland, find the historic market town of Pickering, where the famous North Yorkshire Moors steam train begins its journey. Access Dalby Forest through the attractive village of Thornton-le-Dale and be sure to stop for an ice cream. The forest offers a range of activities including mountain bike tracks, or for those feeling adventurous there is Go Ape. It is also a popular picnic destination which is surrounded by walks that the whole family can enjoy. Travel a little further afield to Castle Howard with its stunning house and grounds. The ancient, Roman walled city of York sits just an hour up the A64, a famously haunted city with many attractions such as the railway museum, river trips and excellent shopping. To the south along the coast, the Cleveland Way leads to dramatic Flamborough Head and the Bempton RSPB Sanctuary. The village of Cayton is a 500 yard stroll, with its pub, post office and shop. Full amenities are just over 4 miles away in Scarborough. Shop and pub 500 yards.
