Arriving by car…

From the East
Pick up the A170 Scarborough/Thirsk road heading towards Thirsk. Approximately 2 miles after Kirkbymoorside, take the Wombleton turn to the left and follow the road to Harome.

From the A1
Leave the A1 at the A168 signposted A19 Teeside and Thirsk. After approximately 11 miles, turn onto the A170 and follow this up Sutton Bank (25% incline - alternative 'Caravan Route' option) to Helmsley. Look for the right turn towards Harome on the A170 just after the Helmsley boundary.

From York (The 'Scenic Route')
Continue on the A64 from York in the direction of Malton/Scarborough, looking out for the brown Castle Howard tourist signs. Turn left onto the Castle Howard road and follow this as it passed through arches in the battlements, and passes the house itself on the right. The road eventually emerges onto the B1257. Turn left and follow this to the pretty village of Hovingham. Shortly after leaving the village, look out for signs to Nunnington on the right and climb the bank looking back to see the views over the Hambleton Hills. The road then drops down into Nunnington and continuing on past the village, you should then pick up the signs to Harome on the left.

Arriving on foot… Stars and Hikes

The Star is located in proper 'walking country' just off the Ebor Way, a worthwhile detour from the start of the Cleveland Way and it features in the 'Inn Way' guide to the North Yorkshire Moors. Even if you are not arriving on foot, consider coming early and taking a stroll to help build up your appetite. Here are a couple of suggested circular walks setting out from Harome:

Harome Walk 1: Harome Heads Farm and River Riccal - download walk

Harome Walk 2: Nunnington Hall and Helmsley Castle - download walk

Arriving by bike… Stars and Spokes
