Description

Situated on the outskirts of the popular village of Goathland, in a quiet location with beautiful countryside views and the steam train passing nearby. The village was put on the map after being the fictional setting of Aidensfield in ITV1's drama Heartbeat and this cottage used to be a bar for the Heartbeat cast staying at the hotel next door; however both have now been converted into charming stone-built cottages.

Inside you will find a cosy and comfortable lounge with wood burning stove for you to curl up next to on an evening.

Reviews

Lovely accommodation and area. Enjoyed the Christmas market at York. Helmsley is a great town to explore and the birds of prey centre was a delight - got a display all to ourselves - wonderful. Many thanks.

Nigel and Christy, Cotswolds,

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Old Farm Cottage. What a lovely spot, ideal for exploring the moors. Would have loved to have stayed longer - thank you.

David and Lauren, Norfolk,

Beautiful cottage, so cosy and exceptionally comfortable. What's not to love, sheep outside your door and stunning property in beautiful location.

Mrs Lisa Wiles,

Area Information

Goathland
Goathland is a stunning traditional village set in the North Yorkshire Moors. The village was put on the map after being the fictional setting of Aidensfield in ITV1's drama Heartbeat. Many of the landmarks in the 1960s series are recognisable including the pub, post office and garage. This is not the first time the village has featured on our screens as Goathland Railway Station was used as the location for Hogsmeade Railway Station in the Harry Potter films. The station links Grosmont with Pickering, and a steam train makes journeys to and from Whitby. The village has many attractions including picnic spots, many walking routes and the stunning natural beauty of the Mallyan Spout waterfall.
