This is a lovely country pub/hotel in a rural location on the edge of a rustic village.

Before I comment on the hotel, let me give you a warning! Your SatNav will take you across the North Yorks Moors, from whichever direction you approach, along unmade tracks with no passing places that would challange a 4x4, and the final approach (according to SatNav) to the hotel is down a 1mile track that is barely wide enough for a pushchair! So for the last 15 miles or so, look at a proper map and you will avoid all the narrow tracks and off-road bits.

Having said that, we were driving a tiny Chevorlet Matiz (fantastic fuel consumption from Essex to North Yorks) and we made it without incident, but drivers with a nervous disposition or no mobile phone (not all networks have a signal up there) should avoid the SatNav route. The main road route,avoiding the tracks and narrow paths is only a few miles further.

Those of you that like a challenge: disregard the above and go for it!!

Those of you with 4x4's, PARTAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!. Mind the sheep.

There is sufficient parking outside the pub/hotel, and the roads are so quiet you could park almost anywhere without any problem.

This is an established country pub/hotel. It is a little gem on the northern edge of the Moors, with Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' Whitby a short drive away, and the seaport of Staithes, Captain Cook's museum, an equal distance away. The Moors themselvescall for your rambling instincts, but wear appropriate footwear and clothing, and take a compass.

Back to the hotel. The main bar is just what you would expect from a rural pub, with beams and fireplace. The dining area is large enough to cater for residents and visitors. The menu is creative (but untried by this reviewer).

Our bedroom was fine, with a clean and pleasent en suite shower cubicle.

Breakfast was substantial, and we were offered as much as we wanted.

Check out is 10am, which is a bit early.
