Near the thriving market town of Pickering, Newton upon Rawcliffe is a small, quiet and unspoiled working village.
It forms a pretty cluster of stone farms and cottages round the village green and duck-pond. The White Swan is a family run 18th century Inn serving bar food and real ale, with log fires. There is superb walking, riding, cycling and touring over moor and forest, wildflower pastures and woodland.
The church and chapel welcome visitors and tennis, basketball, football, children’s playground, barbecue and grassy open space are available on the village playing field.
Pickering is a 10 minute drive down the road from Newton.
Only 5 minutes on foot to our local: The White Swan (also known as The Mucky Duck!)
The White Swan is family and dog friendly. The perfect place to enjoy the perfect beer and Yorkshire home cooking after a long day's walking!
See their website for opening times.
There are many superb walks nearby into Newtondale (can you find the surprise view?) and Dalby Forest and a short drive takes you to the moors or the coast and the possibility of strolls with views or energetic hikes with dramatic scenery. There is a pack in the cottage of walks in the locality and suggestions. You might also visit the “Where to Walk” site (below!) for more ideas.Find out more
The coast is only some 40 minutes away with Scarborough, Whitby and many enchanting smaller villages like Robin Hoods Bay. Try taking the back road over the moors via Stape to Whitby with fords and breath-taking descents. A little further are the stunning white cliffs and bird reserves of Bempton Cliffs and Flamborough.
