Like most rural Yorkshire villages in this area there are free roaming sheep, which is part of the charm. As well as an abundance of wildlife including lapwing, curlew and red grouse which you are sure to encounter. Castleton is a typical, rural Yorkshire village with sandstone buildings which have been standing for centuries surrounded by the vast moorland of the North York National Park. You have a couple of friendly local pubs serving great home cooked meals, as well as a village convenience store, a little tea-room and a train station where the glorious Esk Valley line will take you to the coastal town of Whitby, stopping at scenic villages along the way.

Ideal for walking, bird watching, active holidays with family, friends, or to celebrate a special occasion. The moors, footpaths and cycle tracks are on your doorstep, or visit the Georgian market town of Stokesley where the partly cobbled streets are lined with inns, tea rooms and a mix of shops. Explore the Heritage Coast and sandy beaches of Yorkshire, with seaside towns such as Saltburn, Whitby and Scarborough within easy reach, and fishing villages including Staithes, Runswick Bay and Robin Hood’s Bay. Historic homes, abbeys and castles abound in this area with Newby Hall and Gardens, Castle Howard, the castle ruins in Helmsley and Guisborough Priory in the vicinity. For thrill seekers, you are less than 40 minutes from Flamingo Land theme park and zoo. This is a beautiful destination throughout the seasons.
