Red House Farm

. . . Time for Fresh Air--Things To Do Near Red House

Walking and sight-seeing are the most popular activities for the area, but we are happy to arrange or provide contact numbers for fishing, riding or mountain bike hire. If you wish to fish for salmon or sea trout, it is wise to book in advance during the autumn. Although there are sections of the river open to the public, these tend to get heavily used when the salmon are running.

Or take a ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway from Grosmont to Pickering. With its magnificent steam engines and beautiful rural stations, it´s like taking a step back in time--a holiday you won´t forget!

You are within a short driving distance of Goathland (Aidensfield of "Heartbeat" TV series), the coast (Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Ravenscar, Staithes), Helmsley, Riveaulx Abbey and many other very interesting places.

FAQs for Cleveland Way walkers (also see section FAQs)

Question

Do you have laundry facilities?

Answer

Not in the B&B, but we have a drying room where you can hang wet clothes and put wet boots. Each of our self-catering cottages has its own washer/dryer and an entryway for boots and jackets.

Question

Do you transfer luggage?

Answer

No, but Brigantes or Sherpa Van do transfers along the Cleveland Way (as well as the Coast-to-Coast Walk, and Pack Horse along the Coast-to-Coast Walk ). All three agencies are accustomed to delivering luggage to our premises.

 

Real Staithes and Port Mulgrave

We have just had a fantastic taster day on a 'Real Staithes' experience and we can highly recommend this experience. Have a look at the website on the link below and choose the one right for you. You will need to book ahead. Port Mulgrave is a long and sometimes slippery walk down. The walk up is easier, but probably shouldn't be attempted by anyone who suffers from shortness of breath or mobility problems. It is well worth the effort if you are fit and well!!
