(Elaine's Tea Rooms) Feizor was full of marvellous stone cottages and barns.
Back on the trail and it was a green lane to Wharf - another perfect little hamlet. We skirted round the hamlet via a path between two stone walls lined with wild raspberries. At one point the path went through someone's front garden. The owners were gardening and we said "Hello" as we trotted by. Now there was a great opportunity for serving refreshments to passing walkers we thought. We continued along the stone lined path and suddenly the sound of strimmers up ahead attracted our attention on this quiet day. Round the next bend we came across two National Park Rangers wrestling with the bracken which was very overgrown - we thanked them for their hard work.
The Old Hill Inn at 5:30pm but when we got to the door it said 'closed until 6:30pm'. Luckily a party of gentlemen were just letting themselves in for pre dinner drinks and they let us in - even pouring us a drink whilst they got their own - how civilised. Room was great - super view and beds very comfortable. Delicious dinner and then bed - knackered!
After the outstanding success of our conquest of Ingleborough - we decided we would do Whernside during the next stage. Huzzah!
