Plan your gorgeous getaway to Goathland!

There’s lots to love about the gorgeous North York Moors village of Goathland. Not only is it surrounded by peaceful moorland but it’s just a few miles from the delights of the Yorkshire Coast.

Plan your next short break to Goathland

You can explore quaint fishing villages like Robin Hoods Bay or spend the day at Whitby with fish and chips for lunch.

Goathland Station (or should that be Hogsmeade)

Goathland was featured in Harry Potter

Goathland Station was used as Hogsmeade in several of the Harry Potter films and has lots of old fashioned charm. It’s great to watch the traditional steam trains pull into the station and there’s a shop and traditional tea room here too.

Plan your getaway to Goathland

We highly recommend taking a trip (or two) on a NYMR train.  In one direction you can go to Whitby and the other to Pickering and both options make a great day out.

Goathland Village (or should that be Aidensfield)

Catch a steam train from Whitby to Goathland

The village of Goathland also doubled as Aidensfield in popular ITV drama Heartbeat. You’ll find lots of Heartbeat Memorabilia in the Aidensfield Store and you can still get a drink in the Aidensfield Arms (also known as The Goathland hotel).

Walking near Goathland

Goathland is surrounded by beautiful Moorland so there are plenty of walks to try. Seeking out the Mallyan Spout waterfall is a must – at 60 feet tall it’s the tallest waterfall in the North York Moors.

Goathland in the NYMR

You can walk the ‘Rail Trail’ from Goathland to Grosmont then catch a steam train back.

Beck Hole near Goathland

Alternatively, you can venture to Beck Hole and the Birch Hall Inn which is quite possibly the smallest pub in Yorkshire.

Eating and Drinking near Goathland

There’s plenty of options for food and drink in and around Goathland – from a casual lunch to something a bit more fancy. The Goathland Tea Room offers a range of homemade cakes and light bites and you can get a great Fish and Chips at Eskdale Fisheries in nearby Sleights.

Mallyan Spout near Goathland

The Mallyan Spout Hotel is on the outskirts of Goathland and offers a seasonal menu with lots of fresh local produce from the surrounding coast and moors.
