Pickering is surrounded by breath taking landscapes, dense woodland and open moorland but what could be better than delicious local food or tasty ales after a refreshing walk?
Here are some of our favourite country walks with pubs – let us know which you try on Facebook or Instagram using #VisitPickering.
Take a walk through Pickering and head out on this countryside loop that takes in a great mix of sights and terrains. Highlights include the 13th-century Pickering Castle, dipping into the corner of the North York Moors National Park, and through Thornton-le-Dale. When you arrive back in Pickering enjoy a pint in a traditional pub – pick from The Black Swan or The White Swan Inn.
The Moors Inn – Appleton-le-Moors
This 10.8km circular trail starts (and ends) in the quiet village of Appleton-le-Moors on the edge of the North York Moors and takes you through Hutton-le-Hole and Spaunton.
Finish at Appleton-le-Moors; a quaint village where the sheep and lambs roam freely. Enjoy a post-walk meal or refreshment at The Moors Inn.
The great thing about a pub walk around Harome is that you don’t need a map. Simply follow the river, you can even walk to and from Nunnington.
There are two great country pubs – The Star Inn and The Pheasant Hotel; so the hardest part of your day will be deciding which to visit.
Fox and Hounds – Sinnington
The picture postcard village of Sinnington is a great place from which to start a nice walk to Cropton, or Appleton-le-Moors, a walk of some 7 miles with a mix of woodland and rivers. Pony trekking is available in the village if you fancy a different form of travel.
At the end of the day put your feet up at the Fox and Hounds in Sinnington.
