Appleton le Moors is at the southern end of the North York Moors national park and because of its location it is easy to quickly get to supermarkets and other local shops. But at the same time you are already in the park, so if you head north, you are truly in God’s country.

From the south – by car

You can reach us either by using the A64 round York or the A170 from Thirsk. We prefer the Thirsk route which takes you up the spectacular Sutton Bank, but this does occasionally get blocked. The turn off for Appleton le Moors is off the A170 between Kirkbymoorside and Pickering. Watch out for sheep! They just roam around and have little road sense, especially in the spring time when the lambs are born. After a couple of miles you come in to the village turn left over the cattle grid just before the left hand bend, park up and relax.

From the north – by car

The roads in the park can be quite narrow and steep, but you can reach the village from Rosedale Abbey or Farndale. In both cases follow the road towards Lastingham, then head south towards Appleton le Moors. Drive down the village, past the pub on the right (Moors Inn). Follow the road round the tight right handed corner and turn in right over the cattle grid. The same instructions apply as from the south…park up and relax.
