Planning a visit to Osmotherley
If you want to visit Osmotherley it will be useful to do some research before you come. Try to pick a quieter time of the year if possible for the Summer can be very busy indeed. There is often one event or another taking place - fell running and walking is very popular in these parts and when a run is taking place the Village is packed with cars and people, cheering on the intrepid runners!

Fancy walking in this area? You can - the Cleveland Way goes past the Osmotherley Methodist Church front door - literally! The village welcomes many tourists and walkers during the summer as they pass by.
Walking 'The Cleveland Way'
As stated elsewhere, the Cleveland Way goes past Osmotherley Methodist Church on the way from the village centre to the moors. At the top of the Chapel Passage walk across the road called 'Back Lane' and continue up the path on the other side of the road, heading East towards the North Yorkshire Moors. A good Ordnance Survey map will help you keep to the correct route! The route is walked at most times of the year in all weathers by hardy walkers. You can either make this a part of the long distance route or part of a much shorter outing. Either way, you will not be disappointed.
Places to stay or eat out
There are three good Public Houses in the main village each within 100m of the entrance to the Chapel Passage (which is near the War Memorial). These are 'The Queen Catherine Hotel', 'The Three Tuns' (Contact: Tel. 01609 883301) and 'The Golden Lion' and by clicking on the links in this document you should be able to access their websites for further information. There is also a Fish & Chip Shop (Contact: Tel. 01609 883557 – to check that they will be open when you need them!),
