Aside from its temporary moment in the spotlight for hosting a pub with the name ‘Queen Catherine’ Osmotherley is best known as the walking centre for North York Moors. 3 long distance paths either pass through or very nearby (Cleveland Way, Lyke Wake Walk and the Coast to Coast) whilst its height of over 500 foot and access to the higher moors make it an ideal base for a walking holiday. This is a short walk which offers some excellent views over the village, a pretty wooded dell and stream but also passes one of the more remote youth hostels in the country. A great little walk to get a feel of the area.

Recommend: Head up towards the Youth Hostel before returning via Green Lane leaving the best of the walk to the end.
