Chestnut Barn welcomes two well-behaved dogs. Most cafes and pubs in the area allow dogs into their premises. There are many walks on the doorstep and wider afield. Some of my favourite places to walk my dog are:
a 30-minute walk on lead
Turn left out of the gate. Take a left after the post box, sign posted ‘Sleights’. Go through the gate and continue down the path. Take a right and follow the footpath until you reach a tarmacked road. Turn right, go up the hill and at the top, turn right onto Egton Road. Walk past the church and back to Chestnut Barn.
Aislaby to Egton:
a 90-minute walk on lead
Turn left out of the gate and continue past the church along Egton Road and out of the village. Walk along the quiet, picturesque country road as far as you wish. Egton is two miles away and has a nice village pub.
a 7-mile drive to Glaisdale: a 60-minute walk off lead
This is a section of the famous Coast to Coast walk. Amble along stretches of the ancient Monks’ Trod near the beautiful River Esk and, in spring, through an abundance of bluebells.
Whitby to Robin Hood’s Bay coastal walk:
a 3-mile drive to Whitby/ take the N93 bus from Aislaby: a 3-hour walk on lead
Fabulous views of the North Yorkshire coast. Take the N93 bus back to Aislaby.
a 5-mile drive
A fantastic sandy beach.
