North Yorkshire Coast & The Esk Valley Railway

North Yorkshire Coast & The Esk Valley Railway




5 DAYS FROM £409


The Yorkshire coastline encompasses some of the UK’s most rugged and charming countryside, from tiny fishing villages clinging to rocky cliffs to glorious stretches of white sand and family-friendly seaside resorts, with everything from windswept abbeys to the county’s best fish and chips. The National Trust resort village of Ravenscar is perched on cliffs some 600 feet above the sea and offers wonderful views across Robin Hoods Bay.


Our tour includes a ride aboard the Esk Valley Railway which runs for 36 miles between Middlesbrough and Whitby passing through spectacular scenery and some of the prettiest villages in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.


Our base in Ravenscar is once again the very comfortable AA3* RAVEN HALL COUNTRY HOUSE HOTEL which stands dramatically on the cliff top with reputedly the finest panoramic views out to sea on the North East Coast. Set in 100 acres of award winning grounds the hotel offers leisure facilities second to none; there is a 9 hole golf course, indoor heated pool, sauna, gym, croquet and crown green bowling which are all free to hotel guests. The fine restaurant offers stunning views across the headland and there is also an oak panelled lounge and bar. Naturally all the comfortable en suite bedrooms offer tv and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.
