Nestling in an absolutely magical spot at the edge of the village of Goathland (famous as the location for the TV series Heartbeat) it's within short walking distance of everything that this stunning moorland village has to offer. There are a handful of gorgeous little tea-rooms, sweet village shops, a Post Office and several good pubs all offering good food and all within a few minutes' walk of the property. The beautifully preserved heritage train station at Goathland, famed for its alternative life as Hogsmeade station in the popular Harry Potter films, sits on the North York Moors Railway line from Whitby to Pickering. You can hop on a steam train here throughout the year and enjoy a traditional ride through some truly stunning scenery.

If you enjoy the outdoors you are in heaven here as the cottage is set at the heart of the North York Moors National Park. There are walking trails in every direction. Unenclosed and unsurpassed this stunning landscape, famed for its wild moorland, hidden dales, pretty villages and market towns, is simply breathtaking. See if you can discover one of the several waterfalls in the area including Mallyan Spout, Falling Foss, and Thomason Foss.

Take a tour of the impossibly pretty towns and villages in the area, Whitby and Egton (both 10 miles). A few miles east from here takes you to the stunning North Yorkshire coastline, a heady mix of rugged cliff tops, peaceful bays and pretty fishing villages. With long sandy beaches and all the traditional seaside trimmings of yesteryear, this is proper bucket 'n spade territory. That's not to say it's stuck in the past, in fact the coast's villages and towns combine the traditional with the contemporary effortlessly, with trinket shops and tea rooms sitting alongside upmarket champagne and oyster bars.

Curlew Cottage is in a lovely location, the cleanest cottage/house we have stayed in the last 8years. All of the facilities are well maintained, and the decor lovely.

Fantastic location. Goathland village is pretty with some lovely pubs to eat at. Nice walks over the moors from the door and also close to attractions such as Dalby forest, Whitby etc. Lots of space in the property, very clean and well maintained.

The cottage was a pleasure to stay in and was very cosy and warm. The games room was a big plus with our teenage grandchildren (and the adults). We would certainly recommend it to others. The location in the village of Goathland was convenient for visiting both the seaside and the moors.

Lovely cottage but it would be helpful to get in at maybe 4 on Friday rather than 5 and to not have to thoroughly clean the entire house before leaving at ten on Sunday. The timing and cleaning requirements made us feel a little less relaxed than we would have liked for the weekend.
