Yorkshire's Northern Dales

The Yorkshire Dales provides a blend of wild moorland, peaceful valleys, flower-filled haymeadows, springy limestone pasture, and dramatic waterfalls. The man-made features in this wonderful countryside - dry stone walls, barns, and stone-built villages - blend perfectly with the landscape and only serve to enhance the feeling of timelessness and solitude. Few walkers can content themselves with one visit to the Yorkshire Dales.

Guests on these tours will be able to enjoy the timeless beauty of Wensleydale and Swaledale; take in the waterfalls at Keld and Aysgarth; and visit the charming Dales villages of Muker, Askrigg, Bainbridge, and West Burton.

The multitude of excellent paths in the area enable us to provide itineraries for both ‘Easy’ and ‘Moderate’ grade tours.

Unless you ask us to customise your trip, and choose alternative accommodation, your holiday in the Yorkshire Dales will be based at a comfortable family-run guest house in the bustling market town of Hawes. Your room will have ensuite bathroom facilities and you will have a choice of continental or full English breakfast. Hawes has a good range of pubs and restaurants serving meals in the evening.

If you prefer hotel accommodation we can arrange a room at the excellent Stone House Hotel a classic country manor house and garden situated at Sedbusk in the heart of the Wensleydale countryside and close to Hawes. Stone House offers a range of classic, superior and four-poster rooms and suites and their restaurant sides itself on sourcing the best local ingredients, including, of course, the famous Wensleydale Cheese. The additional cost for accommodation at Stone House Hotel will depend upon the room type chosen.
