Visiting The Horseshoe Inn

The Horseshoe Inn sits in the picturesque village of Levisham on the North York Moors, where there is so much to do and see on our doorstep.

We are only 5 miles from Dalby Forest, great for walking, cycling and horse riding. The moorland village of Goathland is nine miles to the North famed as "Aidensfield" in the popular television series "Heartbeat". The nearby Hole of Horcum has spectacular views of the North York Moors and is a favourite with walkers of all abilities.

"The inspiration for Sue’s colourful paintings comes from the moorland landscape that surrounds her. She continues to explore the theme of walking and sketching as she sees this as a fundamental connection to the land. Through her on-site drawings, she observes the way even familiar landscapes change according to points along a journey.

Her current work takes a familiar location and explores different aspects of the artist’s emotional responses to that place, attempting to harmonise what she sees with her ambition to achieve expressive colours."
