    This stage of the Pennine Way is hiking heaven. Starting at the highest single-drop waterfall in England and finishing at the country’s highest pub, and packed with beauty every step of the way, this route is a classic.

    From Hardraw Force, you begin with a delightful climb across the moors and over Great Shunner Fell, the highest point so far. Wainwright loved this climb so much, he said he could do it non-stop.

    As you traverse the lonely moors, you pass East Gill Force, an impressive waterfall in a stunning location at the point where the two iconic long-distance hikes—the Pennine Way and the Coast to Coast Walk—intersect.

    It is worth a brief detour to see Wain Wath Force. Whilst the waterfall might be fairly modest compared to others nearby, it is certainly a much-loved spot. There is a delightful grassy bank next to the waterfall and a deep pool below that you can swim in.

    From Wain Wath Force, it is an undulating climb to Tan Hill Inn. At 1,732 feet (528 meters) above sea level, it is Britain’s highest pub and boasts beautiful exposed beams, stone-flagged floors and welcoming fire.

    Tan Hill Inn has a range of rooms and a campsite. It also serves food. As there is nothing much else in the area, it is worth booking ahead.
