There are many things to see and do around Moorside B&B.

  • Immerse yourself in history and explore Pickering’s impressive 13th century castle.  The castle is in the heart of Pickering and is open throughout the year.

  • There are a number of grand historic houses with beautiful grounds and gardens in and around Pickering, but none more recognised than Castle Howard. This home has starred on many TV screens from Brideshead Revisited, Bridgerton and Victoria.
  • With diverse and beautiful landscapes in every direction, the countryside around Moorside B&B is a walker’s paradise. Further afield, the Yorkshire Coast also provides excellent opportunities for walkers, with a number of lovely coastal routes across the cliffs and moors.


Moorside Country B&B is the perfect place for walkers, ramblers and mountain bikers. Immerse yourself in unspoilt countryside away from traffic and soak up the peace and quiet amidst amazing scenery and breathtaking views.

Situated on the edge of the beautiful North York Moors National Park where the ancient Mauley Cross and Old Wives Well stand close to a roman road you will find Moorside Country B&B.

Ruined Skelton Tower offers an extraordinary view down into Newtondale and over the track of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Built around 1830 by Robert Skelton, rector of Levisham, it was once used as overnight lodgings after a day’s shooting on the moors.
