So many places I could cohose - including all of the above! However, my pick of the best place to really get away from it all and enjoy the splendour of the North Yorkshire Moors is Bransdale. You take the first left turn as you head out of Helmsley heading towards Kirkbymoorside, onto a road which narrows and eventually leads up into the classic moorland scenery of Bransdale. There are no tea-rooms or shops up here, just a couple of small hamlets. The road leads to no-where, it just loops round and heads back to Gillamoor and Kirbymoorside, so there's very little traffic. You can stop at any of the little dusty lay-bys and strike out across the moor. There are plenty of footpaths, some better defined than others - so take a map! - which lead onto the moorland tops, into woodlands and alongside babbling brooks. At the northern-most point of the Bransdale loop road is the little hamlet of Cockayne. From near here you can make a short climb up the escarpment to the east, which divides Bransdale from Farndale, and enjoy breathtaking panoramic views in the company of grouse and the occasional hardy walker. If you're looking for spirit-lifting beauty and solitude, there's no finer place. But don't tell anyone else!
