Blakey to Intake Farm is 16.5 miles. It is fairly easy going with only the hill beyond Grosmont to contend with. As I recall, it is about an hours walk from Grosmont to Intake ( Judith gives you directions for a short cut from the Sleights road).
I agree, she is a lovely pleasant woman and the food and ambience is great. You cannot get a drink however ( possibly on religious grounds). When I last did this leg I got to Intake about 4.00pm.
The following day is 11 miles getting you to RHB by 1pm approx.
These two days are a nice easy finish.
The pub in Grosmont is ok but a bit down at the heel these days. Stopped there for a toastie en-route from Blakey to RHB on my last day; in August last year. They were very friendly but not a walkers pub.
