For the active, the area has lots of wonderful walks and country lanes that cyclists can explore. For golfers, the Neighbouring small market town of Kirkbymoorside also has a golf course (18 holes).

Hutton Le Hole is possibly one of the prettiest villages in the North York Moors with tea shops, a pub serving good food and riverside picnic areas. It is also home to the Ryedale Folk Museum where you can learn about traditional Yorkshire village life (guests receive a free family entry ticket while staying at the cottages). Heartbeat Country is only a short car ride away, or take a relaxing memorable trip on the North York Moors Steam Railway from the nearby town of Pickering which hosts the famous Pickering Railway and Steam Rally each year.

The cottages are a short drive (only 5-minutes) from Kirkbymoorside and a pleasant drive to the coast for those who fancy some sea air and a day at Scarborough, Whitby, Saltburn, Runswick Bay, Sand's end and Robin Hood's Bay.

There are a whole host of interesting places to visit in and around the surrounding area.
