About North Yorkshire and The National Park
North Yorkshire is the largest county in England and includes the majority of the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. Its origins can be traced to Viking times circa AD875.
Its most Eastern boundary is the North Sea and many traditional fishing villages and towns can be found along this stretch. There is lots on offer in this region with many sporting events such as horse racing at York, football at Middlesbrough, motor cycle racing and cricket in Scarborough, and it has hosted the ever popular road cycle event the "Tour de Yorkshire" in many of its locations.
Inland, the North York Moors National Park gives walkers and explorers chance to get off the beaten track. With the National Trail the "Cleveland Way" - a 109 mile long route, which winds its way through the county and the heart of Runswick Bay there is also Wainwright's famous "Coast to Coast" - perhaps you'd like to pull on those walking boots and start an adventure. We love to walk small sections of the route and explore the area as we go. You can read our blog about it by clicking here.
North Yorkshire offers a wealth of heritage with its Jurassic Coastline and gives fossil hunters a treasure trove to choose from. The quaint seaside villages of our very own Runswick Bay, nearby Staithes, Sandsend, Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay are all easy to visit over the course of a couple of days.
With tearooms, gift shops, museums, beaches, castles, ghost walks, and of course fish and chip shops galore - the quintissential English seaside holiday can be found right here in Yorkshire.
We look forward to your visit.
