is one of North Yorkshire’s most popular villages. The
wonderful green grass is a perfect picnic spot throughout the summer
The village is reached from the south by turning right from the Pickering to Helmsley road, just before Kirkbymoorside, at Beck Mills. The road goes north, climbing steadily for about three miles before the village is first glimpsed on the down hill run into the village. You will be able to get a good look at the moorland sheep in the village as they are all over the place, hoping to pick up scraps from the many visitors that this beautiful village attracts all summer long. The stream that runs through the center of the village does not carry much water through summer but there should be enough to have a paddle. There is a good gift shop and pub with ice cream and sweet shops to be found on the left and right hand side of the village as you head north. There is a good public car park at the top of the village, just turn right at the sign. The public toilets are in the car park. The road out of the top of the village carries on over the moor to Castleton, and passes the Red Lion Inn before dropping down again to the remote village. The Red Lion is one of the most remote pubs in the country and is very popular with music fans who flock there to hear some of the best local and national bands to be heard.
