North Yorkshire

Any one who watches Heartbeat on the television, will know that Goathland is really Aidensfield. It is one of those places where time seems to slow down. As a visitor you will want to visit the locations TV makes you familiar with, such as The Goathland Hotel which is the Aidensfield Arms of course. If, however, you would just like to explore the area, take the walk past the Mallyan Spout Hotel down the footpath to the 70ft waterfall, from which the hotel gets its name. You will not be disappointed.

Goathland is probably one of the most picturesque villages in the North Yorkshire Moors. It's about five hundred feet above sea level, so the Steam trains leaving Whitby for Pickering have to work rather hard to get the trains as high as Goathland.

The village has stone houses and some excellent hotels, some interesting shops and a host of black faced sheep, who continually keep the wide grass verges in peak condition.

Goathland makes a fine centre to explore the moors, with wooded valleys and waterfalls and the old railway track bed through Beck Hole to Grosmont is a delight to walk during summer, with the option to stop off at the Birch Hall Inn for a couple of beers.

For most visitors it is the North Yorkshire Moors Railway which makes the village such a popular destination for visitors. From here you can visit the seaside town of Whitby or the inland market town of Pickering.
