Leave the Coast to Coast trail at Mount Gracie Wood, two miles west of Ingleby Arncliff, to take a three quarter of a mile diversion to heaven.
Cote Ghyll Mill is an excellent location to have a day off on your Independent Hostels itinerary of Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk. Sandwiched between two days of nearly 30 miles this is a great place to take a rest. Cote Ghyll Mill hostel has comfortable rooms and a cafe providing breakfasts and evening meals. It is a pleasant stroll from the pretty tourist village of Osmotherly with pubs and cafes to refresh. A lovely stroll in the other directions takes you to Cod Beck Reservoir to watch the water birds and stretch your limbs.
