Television's Heartbeat Country Located on Our Doorstep

Explore Aidensfield And The Heartbeat Film Locations Featured On Television

We are very fortunate that television's Heartbeat Country is located right on our doorstep so you can easily explore Aidensfield and the Heartbeat film locations featured on TV.

Robin Hood's Bay is also on the edge of Heartbeat Country made famous by the popular television drama series based on the life and times of a country policeman that was centred upon the rural village of Goathland, known on TV as Aidensfield. This is only a short drive away, passing through typical stone-built Yorkshire villages, beautiful green countryside and the famous purple heather moorlands on route. Nearby Whitby is another popular Heartbeat location.

    Aidensfield Stores

Heartbeat Country extends over quite an area, but its main location is Aidensield (Goathland) which possesses many of the settings and scenes featured on your television screens. These include the Police House, the Nurse's Flat, Aidensfield Stores, Aidensfield Post Office, the Aidensfield Arms, Scripps or Aidensfield Garage and Aidensfield Station. This station also featured in the famous Harry Potter movies.

An ideal place from which to start your exploration of Heartbeat Country is the Moors Coffee Shop and Village Store in the village of Goathland. Here you will be able to obtain three excellent guidebooks featuring the series and the area; these titles are Aidensfield, Heartbeat Country Photoguide and the story of Heartbeat Country, all Discovery Guides published by Discovery Publishing UK Limited. For Heartbeat memorabilia, please visit and for more  details of the Aidensfield Stores and Moors Coffee Shop please visit

Therefore staying at Robin Hood's Bay for your holiday provides you with a great choice of places to visit, not just coastal locations, but also inland locations such as Heartbeat Country, Herriot Country and Captain Cook Country, all of which include areas of the famous North York Moors National Park. And one final important point worthy of mention is that one alternative way of exploring the National Park and these famous regions is by the North York Moors Railway which runs from Whitby and Grosmont to Pickering through the most beautiful rural countryside.
