Our second stay with Ann and Colin (1st time in Old Smithy)This time we stayed in Anns cottage. As with our first visit Ann and Colin provided a first class service and superb breakfast.
There is plenty to do from this location, we spent 4 days here as below:
Day One - Whitby.
Day Two - We drove to Grosmont, then took a beautiful walk to Goathland, had a drink and snack there than caught the North Yorkshire Moors steam train back to Grosmont, it is a lovely experience and well worth trying. We had a Moors Kitchen meal that evening, delicious home cooked food, served piping hot in the cottage.
Day Three- A circular walk aroung Rosedale followed by a lovely Sunday lunch at the Blackmiths Arms in Lastingham.
Day Four - Castle Howard.
