The Beansheaf Hotel is perfectly situated for people taking long or short breaks in the area. Located perfectly between the North York Moors National Park and the city of York, it is surrounded by conservation areas and popular visitor attractions. The Beansheaf Hotel provides a central location for visiting many of the outstanding local attractions on offer.

From the Beansheaf Hotel, you can be in the heather covered moorland within a few minutes, simply turn left out of the Hotel car park, drive along the same road for about five minutes and you are there.

To visit the historic city of York, turn right out of the Hotel car park, to the A64 where you turn right again. The drive to York is about 30 minutes. Our tip is to use one of the 'Park & Ride' bus services, where you can park for free in a car park and hop on a discounted bus to the city centre. The Park and Ride buses use bus only priority lanes, fares are less than £3 return and kids accompanied by an adult go free.

The Yorkshire Coast is one of the most attractive and diverse coastlines in the UK, and your stay at the Beansheaf Hotel places you perfectly for exploring all that it can offer. To Whitby, turn left from the Hotel car park, follow the same road all the way to Whitby. To Scarborough, turn left from the Hotel car park, drive a few minutes to Pickering where you turn right at the roundabout, then follow that road to Scarborough. Both of these journeys will take you through an outstanding array of beautiful countryside or pretty villages.

The market towns of Malton and Pickering hold regular street markets, each Saturday in Malton, each Monday in Pickering. Pickering is also the starting point of England's longest heritage steam railway: The North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway. Malton is an attractive town and said to be the inspiration for 'A Christmas Carol' by Charles Dickens who is known to have stayed there. Malton is also now famous for it's annual food festival which has become a mecca for celebrity chefs and food lovers alike.
