Our Facilities Can Be Accessed By Everyone

We are a charming country hotel, nestled right in the heart of the North York Moors in a village called Goathland. All our visitors are assured the very warmest of Yorkshire welcomes.

All visitors and guests who come and go from the hotel will be able to access the numerous rooms throughout the building and grounds, including our newly refurbished accessible bedroom with accessible en-suite wetroom.

From this hidden gem, visitors can explore the famous village of Goathland right from the doorstep along with the North Yorkshire Moors heritage railway, the ‘Rail Trail’ and the Jurassic coastline of nearby Whitby.

To help our guests and visitors, we have compiled an accessibility guide that will provide a walkthrough of our facilities.

If would like to make suggestions  or enquires on this guide please call us or email us and a member of our team will be happy to assist.
