Goathland is a village deep in the North York Moors, off the A169 between Pickering and Whitby. It is surrounded by beautiful scenery and has its own station on the North Yorkshire Moors steam railway line.
This picturesque village is the setting for the popular television series Heartbeat, and filming may occasionally be seen throughout the year.
The village itself ages back to Viking times with plenty of its curious history still evident and tame black faced sheep still graze the village commons and nearby moorland.
Olde worlde shops and quaint tea-rooms will transport you back in time, while the surrounding countryside will simply take your breath away. Goathland is an ideal base for walkers, cyclists and enthusiasts of nature or steam.
There are regular bus services through this village, bus numbers 840/X40.
