North Yorkshire Moors Railway, all you need to know!

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway has grown massively over the last 15 years or so. Going from covering only 6 miles back in 2007, as of 2020, the Fantastic heritage railway service covers an amazing 24 miles! First opened in 1836 to grow in inland trade routes from main seaport town of Whitby the railway has now become a staple visit for 100’s of visitors per year. 

The line was closed between Grosmont and Rillington was closed in 1965 but another line between Grosmont and Pickering was later reopened in 1973 by the North York Moors Historical Railway Trust Ltd. Now hailed as one of the UK’s best heritage railways, Heather is absolutely blessed to have this on our doorstep!

Newly weds

An ideal location for keeping things simple and bonding. You have nothing else to do but be together and take advantage of the beautiful environments around you. As fans of the world fungus and foraging, we had an abundance of places to visit and make some amazing finds! Plenty of edible mushrooms to harvest and take back to heather to cook up!

Firstly, the views from the hut and the surrounding areas are just absolutely breathtaking. The beautiful stone-built walls around the area are like something out of a movie! The peaceful surroundings with joyful singing from all the birds and wildlife in the area are just truly amazing to sit and listen to! I have lost count of how many different birds I have seen coming and going from the bird feeders.
