Two Hoots is a self catering holiday cottage, on the edge of the village of Goathland, high on the North Yorkshire moors. This beautifully presented property, has been lovingly converted from a former barn to create a relaxing haven, with old fashioned charm and modern luxury.

Two Hoots is situated in a quiet position on the edge of the common in the picturesque farming village of Goathland. This light and spacious cottage is well equipped and tastefully furnished, and is a haven of peace and tranquility at any time of the year.

The village with it's sprawling common and free roaming sheep, is often better known as "Aidensfield" in the ITV drama series, Heartbeat. Goathland has an excellent range of dining facilities, tea rooms, everyday shopping and interesting gift shops, all within easy walking distance. Prior to it's extensive re-furbishment, Two Hoots was known as the Heartbeat Exhibition Centre.

There are countless footpaths across the moors for walkers of every calibre, ranging from easy strolls, to the more serious organised walks. The village also has several waterfalls that are within easy walking distance.

Goathland has it's own railway station on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, where steam trains run most days of the year, and up to one per hour in peak season. The station has been used many times in Heartbeat, but was also the setting of "Hogsmeade" station in the Harry Potter Movies. You can board the steam train in Goathland, which then wends it's way through the spectacular scenery of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, connecting Whitby and Pickering.

The vibrant port of Whitby, with it's Captain Cook connections, quaint cobbled streets and colourful marina, and the Heritage Coastline that is dotted with small fishing villages and dramatic jurassic cliffs, are just a short drive away. Take a walk on the unspoilt sandy beaches, stroll along the pretty coastal paths, or simply relax amongst the stunning scenery of this truly lovely part of North Yorkshire.

There are several places to eat in the village, from tea shops to pubs and restaurants, and the Mallyan Spout Hotel, with it's restaurant and bar, is just 200 yards from Two Hoots.
