We recently attempted to walk the Yorkshire 3 Peaks in horrendous weather (thought it would be a safe bet in August ) and planned for a short refreshment stop at the Old Hill Inn.
When we came off Whernside, soaked, cold and miserable we arrived at the pub around 4.30pm but to our disappointment it was closed until 6.30pm.
We decided that it was unsafe and unwise to climb the final peak due to the increasing poor conditions so knocked on the pub door purely to obtain a taxi number.
The landlady opened up and invited us in, put more logs on the fire and said we should warm up and dry out for a while.
Another member of staff made us fresh coffee and then we had a well earned alcoholic drink whilst the landlady tried to arrange a taxi for us.
Unfortunately a taxi company couldn’t be contacted but a lovely young lady who was visiting the pub on business offered us a lift back to the village where our car was parked some 14kms away.
Many thanks to the kindness of the landlady and Tamara for saving us from the elements.
Northern hospitality at its best.
