Fabulous extensive moorland coupled with costal walking with delightful views, this book has an incredible variety of landscapes and as you walk on the moors, they appear to go on for ever and ever.. and ever!

Picturesque villages abound and walks ending by villages always seem to provide welcome food and drink in the form of cafes and pubs. After the glorious weather we encountered liquid refreshment or ice cream was always welcome if not an absolute necessity.

We stayed at the small village of Rosedale Abbey, which meant all routes bar one meant a very steep climb onto the moors, or a very steep descent to our village at the end of the day, nerve racking at times!

Other highlights included The Bridestones, other worldly natural rock formations and The Hole of Horcum, a huge natural amphitheatre. Not forgetting the North York Moors Railway of course. We used the steam train to get from Pickering to Goathland to do the walk at Goathland, travelling at a very leisurely pace.
