Road trip (Whitby & the North Yorkshire Moors) - part 2!

10.8.14

Read part 1 here!

We got to our cottage at around 4pm, by which point we were ready for a sit down and, let's be honest, a nap. The cottage was super tiny, but so cosy, consisting of a small living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The owner had kindly left us some milk, fresh bread, free range eggs and beer. Jonathan tackled the beer and we saved the rest for brekkie.

After a nap of epic proportions (I blame all that sea air) we strolled ten steps to the pub over the road for a few drinks and some tea. We were tucked up in bed by 9:30 playing cards and eating chocolate. Bliss!


Our plans for the next day were to make the most of the sunshine and go walking in the moors so after a bacon and egg sarnie and a mug of tea that's just what we did. The owner of the cottage kindly let us park at his house and we used that as the starting point for our walk which took us a couple of hours to complete.

The sun was shining, the sheep were out and the views were spectacular. Our first route took us along a path that hadn't been cleared so at one point we were literally up to our necks in greenery so we doubled back and started another more sensible route.

It was so quiet and peaceful as we made our way up and down the hills and along the country paths. I'd love to move somewhere like this one day....

Not sure this is the right way?! ;)
