Getting There

An extended circular pub walk from The Moors Inn in Appleton-le-Moors in North Yorkshire. The walk follows pretty ancient stone lanes with mixed hedgerows away from Appleton-le-Moors and passes through a small belt of woodland to reach the picturesque village of Hutton-le-Hole. The route then continues across meadows and on to follow paths across the North York Moors and back into Lastingham village. Passing through Spaunton, the route then returns along more ancient lanes. A really great mix of everything, this walk gives you a taste of the region with villages, lanes, moors, woodland and, of course, lots of sheep! Fora shorter route: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/england/north-yorkshire/appleton-le-moors-to-hutton-le-hole-circular Most of the route is fairly easy walking with just gentle and long gradients, although the paths can get quite muddy after periods of rain. The loop into the moors and round to Spaunton village has several fairly steep climbs/descents and you will also need to cross a small stream using stepping stones. There are no stiles on route but several gates and kissing gates. There are sheep roaming free within the villages and the moors so keep dogs under control. You may also come across cattle in one field, so take care if you are walking with a dog. Allow 4 hours. The Moors Inn is open every day from 11am to 11pm and serves a selection of great food and a range of local ales. Walkers and dogs are very welcome and there are also 7 en-suite bed and breakfast rooms available.

The walk starts from The Moors Inn pub on Headlands Road in Appleton-le-Moors. The village is just 2 miles north of the A170 between Pickering and Kirbymoorside. Approximate post code YO62 6TF. Park on the village streets with consideration for local residents, or the pub has a car park at the rear.

Walking

I completed this walk today and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish, so much variety from the arable fields, woodlands and the stunning views across the moors. The walk mainly allowed my pooch to run free off lead with only a couple of sections requiring a lead due to sheep / birds on the moors.
