Winter at Glendale House

Autumn and winter on the North Yorkshire Moors show the area in all its beauty. The trees turn from green, to every shade of autumn gold. Glendale House offers the perfect base for exploring the Moors, and the walks around Goathland take you through idylic countryside, over moorland, through woods and past waterfalls such as the Mallyan Spout, Thomason Foss and Water Ark. You can walk the "rail trail" to Grosmont, and catch a steam train back to Goathland, but remember to check the timetable!

If you like the sea, you can walk along the sea shore at Sandsend, the cliffs at Whitby, or take a stroll along the pier, and then a coffee or hot chocolate, and maybe fish and chips for supper. Most of Whitby's restaurants are now open all year round.

Runswick Bay and Robin Hoods Bay are much quieter in winter, and both of them take on a real atmospere at dusk with the mist hanging in
the narrow streets, and the smell of open fires.

Once the winter arrives, and Goathland is covered in snow, it looks just like a picture postcard. The hill near the church is a great place for
the village kids to go sledging, its fun to watch - and if you ask nicely you might get a go! Or you could take the opportunity to walk
through the woods to the Birch Hall Inn at Beck Hole, for a pint of real Ale by their open fire.

It doesn't matter how cold it is, in the evening, you can pick up a nice bottle of wine, and come home to Glendale House, and relax in front
of a lovely, crackling, log fire.
