About the location


Staithes 10 miles; Whitby 15 miles; Guisborough 10 miles.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

Nestled in the beautiful and peaceful Esk Valley in the heart of The North York Moors, the little village of Danby has a lot to offer. With two pubs – both of which serve food - a bakery and a tea-room, this quaint little settlement is well served by local amenities. Nearby is the excellent National Park Visitor Centre at Danby Lodge, a historic building set within 13 acres of riverside pasture. The lodge also provides facilities for local exhibitions, nature trails and tea rooms. In addition there are also the ruins of a 14th Century castle and one of the only working water-mills on the River Esk. Running through the village on its way to Whitby is the Esk Valley Railway, whilst nearby the villages of Hutton-le-Hole and Lastingham, as well as the market town of Pickering, offer a variety of amenities not available in Danby itself.
