Helena description

This stunning, semi-detached stone built house dates back to around 1880 and has undergone a sympathetic, major renovation to restore it back to its former glory. Offering spacious accommodation over three floors, the house is located in an enviable position in the well known village of Goathland, famed for its connections with the TV series ‘Heartbeat’. Just a stones throw from the village centre and tourist attractions, the village is home to gift shops, tea rooms, restaurants and of course the North Yorkshire Moors Steam train, which departs from Goathland throughout the season heading towards Whitby, Grosmont and Pickering.
Helena is perfect for that long awaited family gathering or to celebrate a special occasion. It is perfectly located for walkers and cyclists alike, with bridleways and cycle tracks starting almost at your doorstep. Take the old rail trail, running along side the River Esk to Grosmont, taking in some glorious scenery, then catch the steam train back. Visit stunning waterfalls and don’t forget to pop down to Beckhole, after a visit to Thomason Foss falls. A warm welcome awaits you at the local pub where you can enjoy a glass of real ale.
Explore the North Yorkshire Moors National Park on foot, by car, or take the train and enjoy a memorable journey through the beautiful Esk Valley, into the historic market town of Pickering. The Heritage coast of Yorkshire is just a short drive away, with Whitby, 10 miles across the moors, home to art galleries, museums and an eclectic mix of shops. Boasting a colourful harbour leading to a three mile stretch of sandy beach all overlooked and almost protected by the beautiful abbey ruins and St Marys Church.
Historic homes, halls and castles surround this area, there’s Castle Howard and Duncomb Park which are both easily reached. The market towns of Malton, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside and Helmsley all host weekly markets and are home to some fine eating houses, antique and curio shops and friendly locals waiting to greet you.
