The Cleveland Way
Come and help us celebrate the Cleveland Way's 50th anniversary in 2019
The Cleveland Way is 109 miles of beautiful countryside starting in Helmsley, going through the forestry, enjoying the panoramic views around Sutton Bank, across the moors and along the coastline, finishing in Filey.
For full information on the route and its history look at the national trail website.
You are welcome to stay for a few nights whilst walking between Helmsley and Osmotherley . If you do this we can help with transfers.
Willow Tree Cottage can offer you your the first night here on the trail. We can take you to the local pub for your evening meal. To save your legs we can take you back to the Cleveland Way in the morning, as it is a steep climb back.
You could spend your first two nights with us and leave your car here for the duration of your walk. For full details please do contact us.
If you are just wanting to dip into the Cleveland Way you could spend your short break at Willow Tree Cottage. There are several circular walks detailed below. Also there are many other short walks in the area. This would enable you to mix walking and exploring the history of the area at the same time and you can snuggle up by the wood burning stove in the evening.
