Where the Curlew flies ...'
The Barn, Green End is a new venture for us and now the renovation is complete we are looking forward to welcoming visitors to our unique location . The North York Moors have lots of activities to enjoy.
The North York Moors National park is a fantastic area for outdoor activities, including walking. We have the largest area of moorland in the uk around us but there are also many woodland tracks and river walks. The 'dinosaur' coast with many coastal paths and beach walks is another nearby destination.
The Barn is a great starting point for walks of varying length and we are lucky to have some superb cafes and pubs nearby when needing refreshment or for a tasty meal at the end of your day.
North York Moors Steam Railway
A short walk from the Barn; visit the engine sheds for the North York Moors Railway. Steam trains run regularly between Whitby and Pickering. The main line train also stops in Grosmont and runs from Whitby to Middlesbrough.
Beaches and big skies
Whitby was recently voted Britain's favourite seaside destination. Enjoy the a long sandy beach when the tide is out, stretching to Sandsend. Surfing, paddle boarding, dog walking and fishing are some of the activities that can be enjoyed here. Nearby is Black Nab - a favourite photographers haunt.
The many miles of country roads, bridleways and forest tracks offer some great cycling routes. The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles so there are plenty of routes to choose from.
