Walks for Everyone

With the best of both worlds we have the hills of the Yorkshire Dales and the plains of the Vale of York to enjoy, there really is a terrain and a walk for everyone.

You can strike out on a route of exploration with your map and a few tasty treats or you can take it easy and enjoy the reassurance of following a simpler, well-trodden, easy to follow and signposted town walk route.


Content Nidd gorge viaduct

Choose between embarking on an all-day route of 12 miles, or a gentle amble that stretches the legs without the need for boots and supplies.

If you are coming for a Dog Friendly break with your four legged friend, then we have a list of Dog Friendly walks, where we can assure you that any styles or wall crossings are manageable by an able-bodied labrador or collie-sized dog.

The joy of going for a walk when on holiday is the opportunity to explore somewhere completely new, find spectacular views where you least expect them or just enjoy the feeling of truly getting away from it all and the isolation of the moors.

Conquer the Hills

The reward for clambering up one of the immense fells of the Yorkshire Dales is not only the feeling of accomplishment, but also the view across the surrounding dales and valleys as you take a rest and absorb the natural beauty, maybe spotting distant landmarks on the horizon and enjoying some well-earned refreshment.


Content Washburn packhorse bridge

In this part of Yorkshire these peaks are also the watershed, and dividing point between the different valleys of the Yorkshire Dales.

As such, long distant trails like the Six Dales Trail take in a number of magnificent climbs as they make their way over fell and dale.

Rest and Refuel

After your walk, you can be sure of a warm welcome, and often a warm fire in the local pubs, delicious home cooked food and a range of the local ales for which the Yorkshire Dales is so well-known.

If you are only stopping off before continuing your walk then the cafes and tea rooms will see you well-refreshed with something light, before you continue on your way.

Our great range of walker friendly accommodation will welcome you at the end of the day, whatever the weather throws at you, and provide the perfect night’s sleep leaving you fully charged for your next day out.
