Built in the 19th Century, Glaisdale village was an ironstone mining village. Today, it is a small and welcoming hillside village made up of attractive terraces of slate-roofed cottages, wide verges and greens that cling to the hillside on the western side of the dale, just south of the River Esk. At the eastern end of Glaisdale is Beggar's Bridge, the famous packhorse bridge built by Thomas Ferries in 1619. The River Esk itself affords excellent fly-fishing for salmon and brown trout and there are many picturesque walks to be had along its banks. Travelling slightly further afield will bring you to the historic town of Whitby and all the splendour of the North Yorkshire coast.
The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.
