Visit the Yorkshire Dales
With its spectacular waterfalls, ancient woodlands, rolling hills, deep valleys and quaint villages there’s little wonder the Yorkshire Dales attracts thousands of visitors each year.
It is a region that combines jaw-dropping beauty with a near-endless list of things to see and do… and it’s right on our doorstep here at Bowland Fell.
Visit the many charming stone-built villages, which sit against a backdrop of green fields, drystone walls and farming landscapes.
The Yorkshire Dales has many moods – calm and serene or wild and moody, with the weather ever-changing.
Each valley has its own, distinctive identity – and there are so many just waiting to be discovered. The region is also home to some of the finest limestone scenery in the UK, from crags and pavements to an underground labyrinth of caves.
The Yorkshire Dales was made for walking and there are few better places in the UK where you can stretch your legs in such magnificent surrounds. It’s home to several long distance walking routes, which cross-cross the national park, including:
- 100 - 270 miles: Pennine Way, Coast to Coast, Pennine Bridleway, Pennine Journey
- 80 - 100 miles: Lady Anne's Way, Dales High Way, Dales Way
- 52 - 76 miles: Herriot Way, Ribble Way, Dales Inn Way
You can break these walks up into sections and use public transport to get to and from you’re the start/end points or your own car.
However, there are also dozens of other shorter walks that take in places like Malham Cove and Malham Tarn, Swaledale and Wharfedale.
Towns and villages
Away from the stunning scenery and walking routes and trails, the Yorkshire Dales is full a great place to spend a large proportion of your stay with us. Visit the many charming market towns and quaint villages which are home to a multitude of independent shops, cafes and restaurants.
