This Holiday in a nutshell
  • two-centre self-guided walking, luggage transported
  • combination of riverside & moorland routes
  • ride on the UK's most popular heritage steam railway
  • explore the castle & market town of Pickering
  • stay in welcoming accommodation

The North York Moors National Park is famed for its vast expanses of heather-clad moorland which, in late summer, light up the landscape in a fiery blanket of vivid pinks and purples. Here, sheep are left to graze amid relics of ancient human habitation, while small hill-farms dot the lower slopes and valleys, divided by miles of dry-stone walls and winding lanes. Walking along wooded riverside paths, green lanes and tracks that skirt the moors from one pretty village to the next, you experience the gentle beauty of northern England and the wild grandeur of these moors.
The highlight undoubtedly was the train journey up to Goathland and the walk back to Pickering - a fantastic day - and the previous two days built up well towards this.
Mr Allanson, Hertfordshire
This walk is an ideal introduction to some of England's most beautiful countryside, with the accommodation providing a high standard of comfort and cuisine. The archetypal stone villages you pass through are so characteristic of the area, located in secluded corners where life is played out without fuss, much as it has done for centuries. As an added highlight, you also get to ride on a classic steam train on the North York Moors heritage railway that winds its way through the moors between the market town of Pickering and seaside Whitby, a thrill not to be missed.
