Upon arrival we were given a warm welcome from Anna, With efficient and fast check-in, Where we were offered assistance with our luggage. Our family room overlooking Scripps garage was spacious and clean, Complete with tea and coffee and little extras such as biscuits and free postcards. Mention must be made of the superb breakfast each morning, On the subject of food, We had planned to visit another restaurant in the area for an evening meal, But found that the food on offer at the pub was on par with the breakfast already mentioned, So we dined in every night.
All of the staff that we encountered were very friendly and helpful,
The beautiful village was as expected, Easily recognisable from heartbeat.
The village church is also well worth a visit, (Try to find the carved wooden mice) Although if like us you are unable to find them all there is a note on the wall telling you exactly where to look....
Also not to be missed is a trip on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Again Goathland station is a familiar sight to fans of heartbeat and Harry Potter.
If you are fans of heartbeat then this is a must, If not, I would still recommend Goathland and it's beautiful surroundings as a place to visit.
For us, The Goathland hotel AKA Aidensfield arms offered everything that we expected, and we would recommend it to anyone planing a visit to Goathland.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to our traditional local pub and hotel. We have become world famous by sheer accident but for the very reasons Yorkshire Television chose us we like to think that the very best of an English village pub has been delivered to an international audience. Our belief is that many come because of the fictional Aidensfield but return for the spirit that is Goathland. Essentially we offer the convenience of a small hotel but with a big personality. The hotel has eight en-suite bedrooms; they all have individual characteristics and views of our wonderful moors and timeless village. Our rooms reflect the traditional building and retain all the charm and character of yesteryear. The rooms are all fully equipped with 32" LCD Televisions with Freeview, Tea, Coffee and Hot Chocolate making facilities and of course all fresh white linens. ... more less
