Find cottages in DanbyVisit Danby

The village of Danby is situated in the North York Moors National Park at the head of the Esk Valley. The village itself boasts a pretty village green where you will often see Scottish Blackface sheep grazing, a village store, bakery and cafe, post office and public house.

On the outskirts of the village is the Moors National Park Centre. This is housed in a former hunting lodge and is surrounded by large gardens with some lovely woodland walks and paths along the riverside. There are indoor and outdoor play facilities for children and all the family will enjoy discovering more about the area from the interactive exhibits in the centre.

Danby is the ideal base for exploring the North York Moors and is conveniently located for visits to Whitby, around fifteen miles to the east. The village is also served by public transport with a bus service and regular trains running between Whitby and Middlesbrough along the beautiful Esk Valley.

The remains of the 14th century Danby Castle, once the home of Catherine Parr, is just over a mile from the village centre on Danby Rigg. Today, it is the setting for weddings and corporate events and visitors can view the castle by arrangement with the Tenant.

A walk up the 229 metres high Danby Beacon will reward visitors with lovely panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The beacon dates back as far as the 1600s, when it formed part of a line of beacons used to warn of foreign fleets approaching. The RAF used the location for an early warning radar station between 1937 and 1954 but today, visitors will just see the tall, stainless steel and bronze beacon, which was unveiled in 2008.

If you are fortunate enough to visit Danby in August, the annual Agricultural Show provides traditional entertainment, from exhibitions of farm animals to sheepdog trials and craft and local produce competitions.

Baysdale Abbey Ref: 27943

Tucked away in their own picturesque valley, this imposing stone farmhouse (Baysdale Abbey Ref 27943) and three Grade II listed properties (Kildale Barn Ref 27945, Ingleby Barn Ref 27946 and Westerdale Barn Ref 27944) lie on the site of a 12th-century Cistercian abbey in an idyllic setting, where endless footpaths radiate from the door. Accessed by a 2-mile drive, they are set on a working farm where sheep and cattle graze (farm machinery – children must be supervised) within the glorious North Yorkshire Moors National Park. Baysdale Abbey (Ref 27943) has been furnished and equipped to a very good standard. All rooms are spacious, light and airy with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. Original wooden floors on the ground level blend with shuttered windows, cornices add decorative touches and open fires in the reception rooms provide a welcoming atmosphere. A large natural garden surrounds the house and is edged by a fenced beck, providing a good habitat for an array of wildlife. Dating back to the 1800s, the other three holiday properties (Kildale Barn Ref 27945, Ingleby Barn Ref 27946 and Westerdale Barn Ref 27944) offer character accommodation in a tranquil and idyllic location. Vaulted beamed ceilings and wood-burning stoves add to the charm and character providing a welcoming atmosphere. Offering 3 miles of sandy beaches is the historic port of Whitby with its picturesque harbour and cobbled streets. Here you can board the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Train (Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter films) and take a memorable journey through the stunning Esk Valley. Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall, Duncombe Park and Rievaulx Abbey are just a few of the treasures awaiting discovery. The coastal villages of Staithes, Runswick Bay and Sandsend all lie within 23 miles. This is an ideal holiday location at any time of the year. Shop 3 miles, pub 6 miles.
