It may be very surprising to discover just how quick and pleasant a drive it is to reach us from the A66. YouХll find the Tan Hill Inn situated in the remote moors of the North Yorkshire Dales and can be regarded as being Фon top of the WorldХ. Most drives up to Tan Hill involve navigating a series of twisting single track undulating unclassified roads. Some could be seen as a challenge to some and as excitement to others. What we can guarantee is that you will experience some of the most stunning views in Great Britain. There are four main routes to Tan Hill (using a road) and, some less unconventional. Winter always comes with a heavy fall of snow and we recommend that you check with us before setting off as the weather in the valleys can be no indicator of what to expect at Tan Hill! Motorbikers please note: Hitting sheep, tractor or dry stone wall on your bike is not a good idea, you will lose every time. Bikers die in the Dales most years, so please donХt add to the statistics this year. This is the Dales, NOT Donnington!
