In the area

Walnut Cottage is a wonderfully wild self-catering cottage set in the North Yorkshire village of Harwood Dale, a short drive from Whitby, Robin Hood’s Bay, Filey and Flamborough and a stone’s throw from the seaside town of Scarborough.

Harwood Dale Forest is well worth exploring to experience the beauty of the surrounding scenery and offers outdoor activities, including water sports, cycling and fishing.

A trip on the North York Moors Railway provides an alternative way to discover this stunning corner of the country and there’s plenty to see and do either end.

If you have a four-legged friend with you, there’s also bags of tail-wag-worthy walks from the doorstep. Find out more about Thirley Cotes Farm.
