Walk Yorkshire was born from a lifelong passion for the outstanding natural beauty of the North York Moors and a deep desire to share that beauty with others.
The founder Kev Borwell knows first-hand where to find the most beautiful and breath taking views and trails discovered after many years of walking and running within the national park. A former Royal Marine Mountain Leader, and a fully qualified first aid instructor, Kev and the team will give you an experience to treasure surrounded by high moors and interlaced with cascading streams and waterfalls the NYM are in essence the outdoor enthusiast’s gate to nirvana.
“I fell in love with the NYM from an early age and there is nowhere else I would rather be. After more than 35 years walking in the national park, there is always something new to discover. It is not just the beauty which is there for all to see, it’s the diverse terrain and the unpredictability of the climate that makes this area such a magnificent place to kick start your outdoor adventures”.
Walk Yorkshire has a handpicked team of experienced guides who share the same enthusiasm for the Yorkshire countryside. All our guides are also highly trained outdoor first aid qualified.
All of our walking guides are passionate about what they do and where they walk, and all have a tale to tell and anecdotes to share bringing this walking heartland to life adding colour and character to your trail walking experience.
Gateway to the Moors – Helmsley
This walking holiday is based in the perfect English market town of Helmsley. Situated at the beginning of the Cleveland Way and the Ebor Way, this North Yorkshire market town is steeped in history and has attractions to appeal to all, from a 900 year old castle ruins, 250 year old walled garden to charming tea rooms and inviting inns and much more.
This walking holiday is set in a beautiful area known locally and internationally as “Heartbeat Country”, named after the Yorkshire TV series set in 1960’s rural North Yorkshire. Over an 18 year period the programme followed the local constabulary on their duties around the moors and local area, encountering many characters and rogues within the beautiful North York Moors. Filmed in and around the picturesque village of Goathland, which became known to millions as Aidensfield.
The Heritage Coastal walk takes us from Saltburn in the north and heads south to some of the most beautiful bays on the Yorkshire coastline. This is a coastline with dramatic views and with the highest point on the east coast of England at Boulby near to Staithes where the cliffs stand at an impressive 656ft (200m) high.
