Kingfisher Cottage is located in Dalby Forest on the southern slopes of the North York Moors National Park. With over 70km of cycling trails, it is great for those who like to cycle and partake in off-road biking.

The views above the park are just as extraordinary as the sky above the Dalby Observatories is now recognised as one of the best places to enjoy the night sky in the country.
