Views over Osmotherley

  • Explore the countryside near Osmotherley
  • Take in a pretty little dell and stream
  • Views over the village and beyond

Aside from a fleeting moment of fame due to the village having a pub with the name ‘Queen Catherine’ Osmotherley is best known as the walking centre for North York Moors. 3 long distance paths pass through or very near the pretty village (Cleveland Way, Lyke Wake Walk and the Coast to Coast). Perched nearly 500 foot on the North York Moors eastern escarpment and ease of access to the higher moors all help make it an ideal base for a walking holiday. This particular walk is short (no more than a taster) but offers some excellent views over the village, a pretty wooded dell and passes one of the more remote youth hostels in the country. If you have never visited the village… do. 

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