5. Sutton Bank

Sutton Bank, located in the Hamilton Hills, is the trailhead for one of my favorite walks complete with a proper, traditional farm. This 12-mile loop will take you up gentle hills offering amazing, panoramic vistas.

The Sutton Bank walk links up with the Cleveland Way. After you pick your jaw off the floor, you’ll head down the Garbutt Woods to the gorgeous Gormire Lake, which was formed during the last ice age. Not quite old-English style, but High Paradise Tea Rooms is a must-stop spot. Their pizza oven and overall food is amazing. Any walk that features the gorgeous countryside and involves pizza can’t be that bad walk. The walk from the Sutton Bank is my go-to location for watching the sunset and rise, as well as for stargazing.
