North Yorkshire Moors National Park

Staithes sits in the east of the Park and while this national area of beauty is 1,436 sqKm, you can get around it easily enough by car and thereby visit some iconic places including Castle Howard (Brideshead Revisited), take a ride on the steam railway from Goathland (Harry Potter’s Hogsmeade railway station) to Grosmont, also a lovely 3.5 mile walk, take in one of the most spectacular views at the top of Sutton Bank or visit historic Rievaulx Abbey.
