About the neighbourhood
Gillamoor remains an unspoiled working village, through which sheep are regularly herded and farmers are seen going about their daily tasks. There are three farms within the village boundary. At one end of the village, the picturesque church of St Aidan sits on 'Surprise View', which is a dramatic and panoramic view of the moors. Although perched on the edge of the North York Moors, Gillamoor has easy access to Kirkbymoorside (2 miles) and Pickering (10 Miles) where there are a variety of food shops and supermarkets for general provisions. Our lovely local inn & excellent country restaurant, 'The Royal Oak', is 50 yards away from the cottage door. It is renowned for the quality of its food & beers and visitors often remark on its value for money.
How to get there
From the A1(M), take the A169 to Thirsk and then the A170 through Helmsley to Kirkbymoorside. From the roundabout on the A170 at Kirkbymoorside, where Gillamoor is signposted 2 3/4miles (next to Ryedale Garage), turn into the town and drive up the main street to a mini roundabout at the top end of the town. Here take the first exit left. Follow the minor road for just over 2 miles and arrive in Gillamoor. After passing the village sign and 2 sharp bends, you will find Southlands & Keepers Cottage about 100yds along on your left after the 'school' roadsign. We are right in the village centre, next to the school and 50yds from the Royal Oak pub (rear entrance), which is just across the road. Nearest airports Leeds-Bradford - 60 miles, Newcastle 90 miles.
