For many visitors to our area, it is the charm of the moors as much as the coast that is the attraction and few places draw more interest than Goathland.

This popular moorland village shot to fame as Aidensfield in TV’s Heartbeat drama, a staple of Sunday evening viewing for millions and still popular on satellite channels and abroad. It is also a place of interest for keen railway enthusiasts, having both the original Stephenson’s carriage railway and the North York Moors Steam Railway in the village.

There are a host of other reasons to visit, including the access to moorland and valley walks including natural features like the Mallyan Spoutwaterfall.

It’s a village with a lot to offer residents and visitors alike.

Over 30 years ago, the many attractions of the village encouraged a couple to make it their home in retirement and Kirkdale House was the property they chose. In their old age, the owner now wants to move to be closer to their family and so the property comes for sale.

Kirkdale House was a superb choice, lying in the heart of the village between the pub and the shops, but privately set back from the road, with gardens to the front and rear, a garage, shed and greenhouse, essentials for an active retired life.

The accommodation is nicely proportioned with 3 bedrooms on the first floor for day-to-day use and 2-3 further rooms on the second floor for when friends or the children and grandchildren come to visit. This substantial semi-detached bedroom house offers flexible accommodation, set over three floors and good-sized gardens.

It is well placed and enjoys attractive views over the surrounding countryside and moors. On the market with Richardson & Smith, call 01947 602298.
