The Lion Inn
The Lion Inn on remote Blakey Ridge is a 16th Century freehouse owned and run by the Crossland family since 1980. Located at the highest point of the North York Moors National Park, it stands at an elevation of 1,325 feet offering breathtaking views over the valleys of Rosedale and Farndale.
Open fires burn all day and evening in the ancient fireplaces. The original low beamed ceilings add to the friendly atmosphere of the Inn.
