Tan Hill Inn, Swaledale

Tan Hill Inn
The Tan Hill Inn - World Famous as Great Britain's Highest Inn
I am not sure I would want to spend too much time here in the winter with ferocious Pennine winds and winters that can last six months. Christmas is white at Tan Hill.... even the Beer has been known to freeze in the pipes! So its a summer visit for us Mr Q please. The food looks good and I certainly think its a welcome sight for walkers and cyclists, A great watering hole! Stuck in the middle of nowhere is a phrase that comes to mind. If you need to tick the box of having stayed at the highest Inn within the UK then give them a call and tick that box!

Profile Description

One of the most isolated but beautiful locations in the UK. The Tan Hill Inn is the highest pub in the UK at 1732ft.

The place has been there many years and through experience they have managed to acquire their own weather station, snow plough, generator (24/7), water bore hole for water, and gas in huge tanks. The position would suit a self starter that has also a practical bent as you will be expected to gain a good understanding of how things work. However we have as you might expect, a good team of people around the place that can be called on in a crisis!

A very busy venue (a Pub doesn’t quite describe what they are!) as they host Car Rallys/Festivals/Come Dine With Me evenings, and other wonderful events . It is obvious you must be a very sociable character and have a high self discipline towards all aspects of management skills if you were working here.

They boast of many things on their website. Visits from celebrities and film crews as the surrounding dales are often used in films such as Harry Potter, ‘It Shouldn’t Happen To A Vet’ and ‘Pit Ponies’. Many television programmes have been shot in the Tan Hill area including ‘The Inspector Lindley Mysteries’, ‘Murder in Mind’, ‘Top Gear’, ‘The Fast Show’, ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘All Creatures Great and Small’, ‘Jude the Obscure’ and numerous foreign news and travel shows.
