The Esk Valley has been made famous as the filming location for ITV's 'Heartbeat' programme. Just a few minutes drive from Sleights you'll find a selection of beautiful villages located on the banks of the River Esk which flows 28 miles from its source in Westerdale before emerging at Whitby.

Villages such as Goathland, Egton, Glaisdale, Danby, Lealholm and Castleton all offer a range of local amenities inlcuding comfortable and welcoming villages pubs and shops, and are the perfect places from which to begin a walk into the North Yorkshire Moors.

The North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway passes through the village of Grosmont on its way between Pickering and Whitby so is a popular destination particularly through the summer months.

With spectacular views, picturesque villages and a wide choice of footpaths and trails to follow and enjoy, the Esk Valley is one of Yorkshire's most beautiful areas and certainly worth exploring whilst staying in the area.

  • While your in Goathland, walk along the footpath to the Mallyan Spout Waterfall - it's a wonderful location.
  • Go for a picnic in one of the villages - sit on the banks of the Esk and watch the world go by.
