Lands above Hutton le Hole

  • Walk linking two pretty villages
  • Great views over the moors
  • Short enough for anyone to enjoy


Picture 1 of 6

Hutton le Hole and nearby Lastingham are exceptionally attractive but very popular villages lying to the north of Pickering and the foot of the high moors. I have tried to devise a walk which links the two villages offering as much variety as possible and certainly this does. To the north the moors are peppered with sheep and deeply chiselled rivers, to the south farmland dominates but it is this section I enjoy most; not for the nearby land but more for the tremendous views over both villages and on to the vast expanse of open moorland stretching away to the north. It is one of those walks which is short enough so that nearly anyone can get a real feel of the area.

Recommend: It is possible to extend the walk into the moors by visiting SpauntonKnowl

    Thanks for info – it seems perfect for our group who are considering a 2 night stay possibly this June. We are ageing golfers who are looking for and walk on arrival and departure days of max 5 miles with maybe one of about 7 miles on the middle day. I do know Hutton and Rosedale but anywhere near would also be considered

    Many thanks
