Hutton-le-Hole is one of North Yorkshire’s most popular villages. The wonderful green grass is a perfect spot for picnics throughout the summer months.

The moorland sheep roam all over the village, feeding off the scraps from the many visitors that this delightfully genteel village attracts all summer long. The stream that runs through the centre of the village does not carry much water during the summer but there should be enough to have a paddle.

There is a gift shop and a pub, with ice cream and sweet shops to be found on both sides of the village as you head north. The road from the edge of the village continues on over the moor to Castleton and passes by the Lion Inn before dropping down again to the remote village. The Lion Inn 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 around.
