English village named ‘prettiest little village of the north’ due to its ‘magical’ scenery | Travel News | Travel

Hutton le Hole village located on the edge of North York Moors National Park in North Yorkshire, England has often been described as one of the most picturesque villages in Britain.

It gets its name as it is a picturesque hallow located near the Tabular Hills, and has become famous for its beauty due to pretty stone-brick cottages, its large iconic walnut tree located in the heart of the village and the river Hutton Beck running through it.

The place is also famous for its charming historic buildings, as despite having a population of less than 200 people, Hutton le Hole has 29 listed buildings.

CNN Traveller have named Hutton le Hole as one of the “most beautiful villages” in the UK and said is lovely to travel to no matter the weather.

They wrote: “Plant yourself on the grass in the centre of the village with a picnic and paddle in the stream, and when the heavens open, hibernate in one of its tea shops for a hearty slice of cake.”

However, Hutton le Hole is not just a pretty sight as there are plenty of teashops, giftshops and historic sites to explore, plus the village is home to the Ryedale Folk Museum.

The museum explores the history of Yorkshire and holds more than 40,000 objects from the Iron Age to the 1950s in its open-air museum, where visitors can explore a number of historic buildings.

On the Ryedale Folk Museum website, it states: “Don’t miss the medieval Manor House or Iron-Age Roundhouse. Call by the farming area, or find the perfect picnic site in our pretty heritage orchard. We’re also a dog-friendly day trip so don’t forget your canine friends too.

Hutton le Hole has also become famous for its chocolate due to The Chocolate Factory, which opened up over 20 years ago by brothers Gareth and Chris East where all chocolate is made on-site.

On their website, it states: “All products are lovingly made by hand using fresh double cream, real alcohol and pure Belgium Chocolate at our micro-factory in the picturesque village of Hutton-le-Hole in North Yorkshire.”

There are also a few footpaths at the edge of the village that can take you to explore more of the Yorkshire moors filled with purple heather and have fun walking or hiking through the incredible national park.

Emma, a travel expert who shares her favourite dog-friendly destinations on her blog ‘Paws Explore North’ has said she was shocked by the lack of visitors while walking around the village.

She wrote: “The heather was out in full bloom and was absolutely lovely – I was shocked that we didn’t see more people out enjoying it, especially as the weather was fantastic too.”

On social media, visitors of the village have described it as a “hidden gem” in Yorkshire as many visitors have said they enjoyed their visit.

One review said: “Went for a hike and then had a picnic down by the river…it’s one of the most magical places I’ve ever been.”

Another person wrote: “One of the prettiest little villages in the north.”

Someone else wrote: “Loved the museum. Been there a few times it’s brilliant well worth a visit.”
