An attractive village on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, Osmotherley lies in a fold of the Cleveland Hills. It is well-known as the start of the challenging 40-mile Lyke Wake Walk to Ravenscar, and also lies on the route of the Coast to Coast Walk from St Bee's Head in Cumbria to Robin Hood's Bay.
In the centre of the village next to the market cross stands a stone table once used by John Wesley as a pulpit. John Wesley visited Osmotherley eighteen times, and the village has one of the earliest Methodist chapels in the country.
