North Yorkshire Moors Railway and Levisham Pub Walk

There’s nothing better than a walk that involves a stop at a pub.  We went out for a 10 mile hike from nearby Saltergate over to Newton Dale to see the trains running on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. After seeing the 0920 pass on its way to Whitby, we (me and our dog Udal) headed down to Levisham station to watch the trains pass and the hand over of the all important “token”, which allows the train to work along that stretch of track.

From there we headed up to Levisham village to have a pint at The Horseshoe before heading back to Saltergate skirting the top of the Hole of Horcum.

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway runs daily services that stop from Pickering to Grosmont and also a through service that goes all the way to Whitby on the coast. For more details, visit their website.

Pickering the starting point for the NYMR is only 15 minutes from our cottages at Cliff House, as is Saltergate car park – the start of this walk.

Come stay at Cliff House Holiday Cottages

Our five holiday cottages in North Yorkshire are just on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and 20 minutes from the Yorkshire Coast.  Half way between the market town of Pickering and the seaside town of Scarborough. We offer a perfect year round base for exploring what the area has to offer, from Flamingo Land, the North York Moors Railway to the modern history museum of Eden Camp and a lot more besides! Our range of five cottages include a 6 person cottage with one en suite and a further 2 bathrooms, as well as smaller cottages suitable for couples and people travelling on their own.  All of our cottages are set within 2 acres of grounds, are dog friendly and all cottages have access to our indoor heated swimming pool and games room.  As “Walking Friendly” accommodation, we supply maps and local guide books with details of lots of local walks  – also as we live on site we are also on hand to recommend a walk or two!
