Pot roast wild rabbit followed by treacle sponge demands you take a stroll. Return to bedrooms in calming colours with crisp white linen

It's a good day when a rural pub re-opens. This one sits in Litton, one of the most remote villages in this corner of the Dales and as pretty as it gets, with a smattering of handsome, thick-walled 17th-century houses, wildflower meadows and the river Skirfare burbling through. The Queens Arms, long, low and freshly whitewashed, is a fabulous find after a lovely walk. A lick of paint has smartened the inside without routing tradition; flagged floors, open fire, beams and stone walls remain. There's a new regime in the tiny kitchen, and a short but appealing menu. Seared Littondale mallard breast with homemade carrot and ginger chutney is a substantial starter, while pot roast wild rabbit with prunes will set you up nicely for that stroll – particularly if you finish with treacle sponge. Upstairs: six bedrooms in calming colours with crisp white linen, fat wool headboards and long views from the low windows. As you'd expect in a building this age, no wall is straight, but the wobbliness just adds to the charm, along with some lovely antique pieces. Spotless shower rooms complete the picture.
