Thornton-le-Dale, considered to be one of the prettiest villages in North Yorkshire, is an excellent start and finish for a walk. It is easily reached by bus from almost any direction and has a large car park close by. The start of the walk goes past tea rooms and bakery shops, then past a stunningly beautiful thatched cottage. Follow Thornton Beck up to Ellerburn and maybe visit the Norman church of St Hilda's and pay a visit to the Cosy Nook tea room. See the Lumber Jill's sculpture near the start of the Dalby Forest Drive and enjoy the view. This is an excellent place for a lunch break. Turn west through mixed woodland and pass through the farm at Low Kingsthorpe, turning south-west to follow Howl Dale before picking up the path by Haggs House to return to Thornton-le-Dale through fields. Now is decision time: ice cream or tea and cake in the village centre.
