Stayed in a holiday home just outside Hutton le Hole and decided to walk to the pub across the moors - about 5 miles.
Great weather some dodgy map reading and we eventually arrived walking down the vertical (well nearly) Chimney Bank - billed as the joint steepest road in England.
At the pub to we were met by a really friendly guy behind the bar, dogs welcome in the bar area, and roaring coal fires.
The food was top drawer at reasonable prices - and after a couple of pints the temptation was to stay all afternoon.
But no we braved the return trip and buoyed by our refreshments crawled back up the hill from hell and on home.
A great day out with fantastic views, countryside and a lovely lunch.
