Ivy Cottage is situated just outside the hamlet of Beck Hole, one of Yorkshire’s best kept secrets, and just outside the village of Goathland from the ’Heartbeat’ TV show fame. This stunning cottage is just a short walk from one of the smallest pubs in the UK, known for its traditional ales and warm friendly welcome. Stunning valleys and sweeping hillside views can be enjoyed from this idyllic location as can the many cycle tracks, bridle paths and walkways all from the doorstep.
Nearby Whitby is increasingly popular with holidaymakers all year round as it has something to offer all the family, including 3 miles of golden sandy beach, donkey rides and ice creams. Climb the 199 steps to the gothic Whitby Abbey, which was made famous by Bram Stoker’s ’Dracula’, or take a stroll along the cobbled streets taking in some of the older parts of town with its jet stone boutiques. Whitby has an up and coming foody scene too, with everything from Michelin star restaurants and award-winning fish and chips, to tea rooms and family friendly pubs, many of which are dog friendly. There is also a golf course nearby and many boats offering tourist trips out to sea in search of seals, dolphins and even minke whales in the right season.
