About the location

DANBY

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.

Danby is a charming village located towards the head of the Esk Valley. At the heart of Danby is the village green where Scotch Blackface sheep keep the grass down all year round. The village itself is well served by a pub, a bakery and café, a village store and a post office. The North Yorkshire Moors National Park has a visitor's centre just outside the village. Here visitors can learn something of the history of area and be directed to all manner of walks from a short stroll to longer treks for serious ramblers. There are quite often demonstrations of local crafts and farming skills in the area. North of the Moors' centre lies the valley of Clitherbeck where coal mining used to take place.
