Walk This Way - Gisborough Hall    

Walk This Way

From a seat on our sun-drenched terrace you can enjoy views of the Cleveland Hills and Guisborough Forest, and with a hop, skip and jump (or in some cases a short drive) you can join some fantastic walking routes in the North York Moors National Park and surrounding areas.

The Cleveland Way

The Cleveland Way Walking Trail is a 109 mile route that crosses the beautiful North York Moors National Park and follows the scenic North Yorkshire coastline.

The route starts in the picturesque town of Helmsley and heads across the North York Moors National Park with its beautiful landscape of heather moorland, rolling hills, forest, and farmland, and passes through charming country villages.

The route reaches the coast at Saltburn-by-the-sea, a Victorian seaside town, and follows the North Yorkshire coastline passing traditional fishing villages, the smuggler’s village of Robin Hood’s Bay, and the bustling coastal towns of Whitby and Scarborough, before reaching the finish point at Filey.

The Cleveland Way can be divided and enjoyed as shorter walks.  Gisborough Hall is a stone’s throw from the route on the Kildale to Saltburn section, and can be used as a place to enjoy a bite to eat along the route or as a place to stay overnight to rest and relax.

Head to the National Trails website for the route details and map.
