Gumboots & Wellingtons

Gumboots & Wellingtons

Ellerburn, Pickering, North Yorkshire, YO18 7LL

Gumboots & Wellingtons offers holiday hideaways (both suited to 2 adults) in a beautiful secluded valley within the North York Moors National Park. A hop skip & jump from Dalby Forest, one of the darkest areas within the national park, we are lucky enough to have dark skies here, so it’s possible to see the Milky Way with the naked eye on clear moonless nights. Watch out for our twilight walks (run in collaboration with Yorkshire Coast Nature & Adventures for the Soul), with toasted marshmallows under the stars afterwards!


Stay & gaze - this location benefits from dark skies, relatively low levels of light pollution, is astronomy friendly and suitable for stargazing breaks. If you visit and find that the location is not dark sky friendly please let us know!
