Gillamoor remains an unspoiled working village, through which sheep are regularly herded and farmers are seen going about their daily tasks. There are three farms within the village boundary.
At one end of the village, the picturesque church of St Aidan sits on 'Surprise View', which is a dramatic and panoramic view of the moors.
In this picture, Keeper's Cottage is directly beyond the parked blue car.
Although perched on the edge of the North York Moors, Gillamoor has easy access to Kirkbymoorside (2 miles) and Pickering (10 Miles) where there are a variety of food shops and supermarkets for general provisions.
Royal Oak Country Pub & Restaurant
Our lovely local inn & excellent country restaurant, 'The Royal Oak', is 50 yards away from the cottage door. It is renowned for the quality of its food & beers and visitors often remark on its value for money.
In addition to the usual lunches &, evening meals, take away fish and chips are available for £5.75 and a full English breakfast, served in the bar for £6.50 (booking for breakfast is required the evening before. You will find a menu in the cottage for your convenience)
The North York Moors National Park and the Yorkshire Heritage Coast (Scarborough, Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay) form the regional setting for Keeper's Cottage. In season, Farndale's show of daffodils and The Moors' cover of heather are irresistible attractions for visitors from the four corners of the world. This is walking and cycling country which is difficult to better anywhere in Britain.
