Area Information

This thriving market town of Kirkbymoorside approx 25 miles north of York and nestled between the market towns of Pickering and Helmsley.  Kirkbymoorside ('Kirby') is a friendly, proper village rather than a tourist town and is close to some great walking and cycling routes on the North York Moors.  Pickering has a steam railway where you can enjoy a delightful ride through the countryside to Grosmont you can alight at all the stations and enjoy a local walk to make a full day of it.  For a day out at the seaside you have great access to Whitby and Scarborough.  For off road cycling then Dalby Forest is a great day out for all the family.
