Sleeping

The national park's accommodation is mainly in scattered B&Bs and campsites, and can be overwhelmed during summer weekends and bank holidays. On the fringe of the park, there are a handful of small hotels in Helmsley, Pickering and Malton. The biggest concentration of B&Bs is in Whitby on the east coast, and your best bet, though it's not guaranteed, for finding a room without advance booking.
