Top Pub Walks In and Around Pickering

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.

The Black Swan and The White Swan Inn – Pickering

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 Star Inn and The Pheasant Hotel – Harome

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.
