“Harry Potter station”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

We saw several steam trains the area is very attractive. Ideal Harry Potter land. For those not so good on their feet drive down as the walk out is a killer.

“Take a step back in time!”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

This is a picturesque village in the Yorkshire Moors that remains in the 50s era. Heartbeat the famous television series was filmed here. The train station is totally un modernised with the steam trains and old semaphore signals still in use. The village is surrounded by heather covered hills and streams. A place of great tranquility with fabulous villages surrounding. Well worth a visit on the way to Whitby.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Again, no review place available for the Heartbeat Village however this is a highly recommended place to visit. The Train Station was filmed in Harry Potter and the surrounding village was the set for Heartbeat. The Village stores, the Police Cars and Scripps Garage are all still there. Highly Recommended

“A familiar sight to some”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

With its affiliation to "Heartbeat" and "Harry Potter" the station could feel familiar to some visitors especially as the garage in the village bears the name it has in Heartbeat.
We were unfortunate to have just missed the steam train in the lovely old station however the unique sound of a steam train and the sight of a plume of smoke in the not too far distance evoked such strong childhood memories when I was a little boy and watched these magnificent machines going about there daily business, happy days.
