Welcome to Walk Yorkshire
The North York Moors form a compact yet immense cornerstone of the entire Yorkshire region. Confined within 553 sq. miles they embrace the largest unbroken expanse of heather moorland in the UK. This is an area where the past and present merge into one glorious feature. Key roads and tracks follow the landscape between the valleys and many are marked by the standing stones and crosses, many of them of great antiquity.
Surrounded by high moors and interlaced with cascading streams and waterfalls this is without doubt an area of outstanding beauty. Ancient woodland makes up for about 22 percent of the National Park creating a blanket like feature visible on many of the valley sides allowing for a unique landscape of distinctive character.
The National Park also boasts 36 miles of Heritage coastline stretching from Saltburn at the northern most tip of the National Park zigzagging south towards the seaside resort of Scarborough, this is Yorkshire’s coastline at its most raw and elemental. Intimidating cliffs tower over picturesque cottages, at 656 ft the impressive and daunting Boulby Cliffs just north of Staithes are the highest on England’s east coast.

We had an excellent weekend away with Walk Yorkshire. Kev is very knowledgable and made the whole experience feel very personal.
Mr & Mrs Davies
We decided to try a new kind of weekend break and discovered Walk Yorkshire. The self guided "Gateway to the Moors" break was a perfect introduction for us and we'll be booking with Kev again very soon!
Simply amazing! We booked a family gathering/walking holiday with Walk Yorkshire and every stop on the Cleveland Way trail was perfect! Cannot recommend Walk Yorkshire enough!
