Looking for a Goathland Bed and Breakfast as a base to explore the North Yorkshire Moors? Here are 8 B&B’s and Guest Houses in Goathland for you to consider.
Goathland, known historically as ‘Good Land’, or ‘Godelandia’ is a beautiful moorland village situated in the heart of the North York Moors National Park offering easy access to both Whitby and York. Goathland is a popular place for walkers, train enthusiasts and Harry Potter fans alike, but you don’t have to be one of these to enjoy a stay in this bracing moorland village.
The North York Moors Railway, which runs a steam service from Pickering to Whitby, passes through the village, stopping for passengers at Goathland Station. Harry Potter fans will know the train station from the early films as ‘Hogsmeade’, the destination of the ‘Hogwarts Express’.
Walkers have a lot of choices when using Goathland as a base. Whitby is just nine miles away for those seeking a walk to the coast with a bag of the finest fish and chips as a reward, it’s then possible to take the NYMR back into Goathland, check times and services for possibilities.
Local landmarks include the Mallyan Spout, a stunning natural waterfall, Beck Hole has a collection of fine listed buildings dating back many hundreds of years, including the Birch Hall Inn, there’s the North York Moors Railway at Goathland Station and of course the moors themselves which are really wonderful. So, with so much to see and do, where to stay?
