About James Ratcliff

We bought this property to run as a holiday rental. We had always dreamed of having a holiday home which we could run as a family business, so this is a dream come true. We have refurbished the house, decorated it from top to bottom, while rescuing many of the original features which had been hidden over the years.

James Ratcliff purchased this house in 2015

Why James Ratcliff chose Goathland

We love this area and fell in love with the character of the old property. The house was in need of a lot of 'tender loving care', but we knew that it was the house for us.

Whitby being on the doorstep is an added bonus as there is always something happening, whether it be a music weekend, the famous Goth weekend, or just a visit to the Abbey.

There is no finer sight than watching the sheep roaming free in the village or feasting on the heather; or watching the steam trains puffing through the area.

To say that the garden was over-grown would be an understatement! We salvaged various items from the garden and shed, from the servants bell (now in the kitchen) to a fire hearth (now in the master ensuite).

What makes this house unique

Although the property is conveniently located in the village, it is situated on a peaceful lane. There are lovely walks from the front door in all directions.

A new kitchen has been installed, complete with modern amenities while keeping the charm of the working AGA (recently converted to electricity). The breakfast bar enables you to have an informal snack or relax and chat while cooking. We have aimed to refurbish the house sympathetically, while also installing modern essentials, such as ensuites and modern shower rooms.

The garden is fully enclosed and so a safe area for the dogs to roam - we have dogs and they love to go for a walk on the Moors.

We love the village as it has everything you need on your doorstep there is no need to go any further if you don't want the hassle, a truly perfect holiday location.

The perfect place for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

For a large group of family and friends the house was perfect. All the amenities and equipment was there. The house is spacious and would like to have spent the same break during the warmer months when the nice garden would have been a great addition. Overall would recommend a booking to all.

Lovely house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away in this lovely big house. There were 11 of us and the house is easily big enough not to get on top of each other. The house is vey well equipped. There is everything you could need. Lovely bathrooms and bedrooms that were spotlessly clean. We will go back without a doubt. Thanks James, for letting us stay.

Goathland is perfectly situated to enjoy the beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. The village of Goathland was the setting of the popular television programme 'Heartbeat': visit the Goathland Hotel (Aidensfield Arms) and the timeless village shops. Additionally, Goathland train station was used as the station for the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter films. More recently, the North Yorks Moors were used as a location in the film version of 'Dad’s Army'.

You can’t stay in Goathland and not catch the North York Moors Railway to Pickering or Whitby.

There are a number of village shops and tea rooms which provide essential groceries and souvenirs.

Nature lovers, walkers and cyclists can enjoy the rugged landscape of the North Yorkshire Moors.

If you are interested in a beach activities, a short drive will take you to Whitby where you can enjoy beach combing and fossil hunting.
