Yorkshire Dales National Park

 A footpath in the Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales National Park occupies just over 1,760 sq km of wilderness in north Yorkshire and Cumbria. The Pennines range runs through the national park. Various long distance walks traverse it.

This is walkers' paradise - stunning rugged rock strewn scenery and plentiful wildlife, peaceful open countryside across the fells, friendly villages and welcoming pubs in the valleys. There are way-marked trails from almost every village, walks to see waterfalls and rock formations, walks through meadows or alongside rivers and streams. Anyone can come and feel that sense of joy and pleasure from seeing so much natural beauty first-hand. 

Examples of wonderful places to walk in the Yorkshire Dales National Park

Near Sedbusk in Wensleydale

Impressive rolling hills in the background and acres of fields crisscrossed by dry-stone dykes create a charming rural picture. Stay in cottages within small Dales villages or hamlets to experience Yorkshire charm and hospitality and to be close to the places that you would like to visit in the Dales.

Spend a few days in Wharfedale

Quiet narrow roads with few cars are wonderful for cycling breaks in Wharefedale. Cycle from Hawes down to Kettlewell for some of the most amazing Yorkshire Dales views. Encounters with sheep are very likely.
