Hutton le Hole lies in a hollow at the entrance to the North Yorkshire Moors. The Hutton beck splashes and winds its way through the village green where local sheep freely graze. Dating back to the Domesday book the village became known as Hutton le Hole during the 19th Century, various interpretations of the name have been made but the most appropriate is perhaps "the place near the burial grounds" (hoe or howe) groups of such mounds can be found around Barmoor. An inn in the style of a long house used to stand on the site of The Crown.
The Ryedale Folk Museum celebrating our rural heritage is just next door.
Walking: There are some excellent walks in the area including a circular walk to Lastingham via Ainhowe (Ana) Cross, the largest of the 37 crosses on the North York Moors.
