Walking is a breeze from Skelton or Rowntree Cottages at Grove House Levisham Station. Just step out of the cottage and there are pathways for all abilities. The challenge is deciding which way to go and what to see.
Head east to Levisham Moor, the village and the Hole of Horcum. West sees a steady climb to Newton on Rawcliffe and Stape. Go north into Newtondale along the Forest Drive, adjacent to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, and deep into Cropton Forest. South takes you along the beck,staying close to the railway, through meadows and broad-leaf woodland to Farwath and to Pickering beyond.
If you prefer long distance walking we are directly on the Inns Way. We are within 500 meters of the Tabular Way and a few miles south of the Lyke Wake Walk (B&B & pickup available on request).
The geology and topography of Newtondale is varied, comprising several different habitats within a small area, making it a marvelous place to find enjoyment in observing plant and wildlife. You are likely to see Hares, Roe Deer, Badgers and could be fortunate enough to see magnificent and elusive Red Deer.
The NYMR are still running services until the end of October making it easy to explore more of the valley. Walk out and return by steam train with a cuppa.
