Of the North York Moors
Fern Farm, with its cottages, is situated in the tiny hamlet of Greenhouses in the North York Moors National Park. Just a mile and a half away is the picturesque village of Lealholm.
There is so much to see and do in the area, for Heartbeat fans we have Aidensfield just a short drive away (locally known as Goathland), the annual Whitby Regatta, Whitby Goth weekend and much more.
The rugged but beautiful heather moors come right up to the stone walls of the farm and the only traffic is the occasional tractor or horse rider so you can take full advantage of the many beautiful walks which criss-cross the whole area.
With Guisborough situated on the edge of the North York Moors the area offers miles of scenic moorland routes, excellent forest trails and terrain to suit all types of mountain biking.

With its sweeping, sheltered bay and charming red roofed cottages, Runswick Bay is one of the Yorkshire Coast's prettiest destinations. The sandy beach, which once provided anchorage for brightly coloured fishing boats, is now a family favourite for rock pooling, fossil hunting and coastal walks, where you can admire the breathtaking sea views.
This popular tourist destination built along the river Esk boasts many amenities. It has a post office, garage, shop, tea rooms, garden centre, pottery, three churches, a village hall which often displays work by local artists and a traditional country pub - The Board Inn, overlooking the village green where the traditional game of quoits is still played.

Millions of years ago, the land upon which Robin Hood's Bay is situated was once a deep sea. The sea animals of the time, buried in the mud, became fossilised, providing one of the best sources in Britain for the fossil hunter. Some of these fossils can be seen on display in the museum and can still be picked up on the beach if you look carefully.
Staithes is a seaside village in the Scarborough Borough of North Yorkshire, England. Roxby Beck, a stream running through Staithes, is the border between the Borough of Scarborough and Redcar and Cleveland. Formerly one of the many fishing centres in England, Staithes is now largely a tourist destination within the North York Moors National Park.
Although Greenhouses sits on the edge of the moor, less than 10 miles away are the quaint fishing villages of Staithes, Runswick Bay and one of the main holiday destinations in the area, the ancient port of Whitby, still a busy fishing port it is best known as the place where Captain James Cook was apprenticed as a seaman and his three famous ships, the Endeavour, Resolution and Discovery were built there. It is also known for its dramatic Abbey ruins which stand high on a ridge overlooking the coast and the churchyard which inspired Bram Stoker to write 'Dracula'
