From Helmsley we took a short detour to visit a really picturesque village called Hutton-le-Hole, located in the North York Moors National Park. It's really just a one road village, but the dozen or so houses were beautiful, with most of them made from stone and with red tiled roofs and chimneys. There was also a pretty little stream running through the centre of the village, where a family was fishing and having a picnic. My dad dropped us off at the bottom end of the road and it took about 5 minutes to walk the length of the village, where he was typically waiting at the only sweet shop, getting ready to stuff his face!
Exiting Hutton-le-Hole, we were immediately treated to breathtaking scenery, as the fields were covered with purple heather and thistles. We stopped for some photos and to watch a couple of lonely looking sheep, as they walked alongside the road, passing 3 hikers coming from the opposite direction. There was barely another vehicle in sight, so the drive through the National Park was a really enjoyable one.
