Well after reading all the recommendations about the Lion my sister and I have booked a long weekend there in June. We'll be doing a bit of walking, but mostly looking forward to having a few gins in the bar, and some good old Yorkshire pud! Going to check out the camping area as well for later on.
Just can't wait .....!
The LION will serve you well and you'll not look anywhere else for quite some time. As for wlking make sure your good with map and compass cos if early nights distances like Goathland and back are a push, you may be travelling back in dark or near dark. also if cloud drops..well, you prob know the score . Enjoy your stop I AM JEALOUS! stuck at home on tyneside finishing a degree. PS straight down to LION to celebrate when passed though!!!!!
