May is a most magical time of the year here on the North York Moors. The haunting refrain of the Curlew is thrilling and the cheeky sound of the Cuckoo has returned.

And as for walking ..we are totally spoilt for choice

A favourite walk from our doorstep leads down into the dale and past the beautiful Church of St Hildas which stands serenely on it’s own in the middle of the dale. Check it out here.
