A motorhome that is well equipped with amenities like beds and cooking equipment can virtually eliminate the need for accommodation and make your travels much more pleasant. This is particularly true when you are visiting wide open areas of natural beauty such as the North Yorkshire Moors.
This isn’t just an expanse of beautiful land and moors, but also a number of charming towns and villages such as Helmsley, with its quaint market square, bustling artisan shops, charming tearooms and welcoming inns. Other villages include Goathland, home to North Yorkshire’s smallest pub, the Birch Hall Inn. Close by lies Grosmont, a peaceful village which is the starting point of the Rail Trail, a 3.5 mile trail along railway pioneer George Stephenson’s original route to Goathland.
Other great places to visit include Robin Hood’s Bay, an old smuggling and fishing village with eccentric winding streets and alleyways and an array of attractions, including the local museum where you can learn about the rich local heritage. From Rosedale Abbey to Thornton Le Dale, the villages dotting the landscape of the North Yorkshire Moors are always worth a visit.
Whitby is perhaps the most famous town in North Yorkshire, well known for its connections to Dracula, its fishing heritage and its jet jewellery. This beautiful seaside town is well worth the temporary drive away from the North Yorkshire Moors. Pickering is a lovely idyllic market town known for its heritage railway and Pickering Castle.
There are numerous impressive sights dotted across the Moors, including Skelton Tower, Ayton Castle, and a number of majestic abbeys including Ampleforth Abbey, home to a community of Benedictine Monks, and Byland Abbey, considered one of the greatest abbeys in the country. Other attractions include Forge Valley Woods National Nature Reserve and the beautiful Dalby Forest which hosts the Dalby Observatories, one of the best places to take in a view of the night sky in the country.
The Moors also hosts a number of walks including the Cleveland Way National Trail and the Levisham Moor and Horcum Hole walk, which leads to the magnificent Horcum Hole, a natural ampitheatre that is almost 400 feet deep.
The beauty and open nature of the Moors makes them perfect for driving around in a motorhome, uncovering new sights and experiences without having to sacrifice your general comfort. We’ll make the process of motorhome hire simple so you can enjoy this stunning part of the country from your very own private vehicle.
