The Old Schoolhouse is in the quiet village of Commondale on the coastal side of the North Yorkshire Moors. The building was originally the home of the village schoolteacher, and has been tastefully converted into 4 holiday apartments. The owners live in the adjacent building which was Commondale school.

Tranquil and picturesque Commondale has an art gallery, a rural pub,(no meals) and also a campsite for scouts and guides who wish to experience country life. One of the nearby farms, Fowle Green, sells free range eggs and Angus beef, and has a tearoom. The Esk Valley train which travels between Middlesbrough and Whitby stops at Commondale station which is just 15 mins walk from The Old Schoolhouse.

Although the service is limited, this is an excellent way to travel to Whitby, or to Grosmont to pick up the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Castleton village is approximately 2.5 miles away and can be reached by a bridlepath.

Most amenities are available here e.g.late opening general store, post office with cash machine, hairdressers, tea room, 2 pubs serving meals, newspapers,art shop, petrol station.
