Welcome to the Yorkshire Dales
YHA has camping in the Yorkshire Dales, well-known for its wonderful scenery. Profound valleys, known as dales, with roads winding between dry-stone walls and an array of meadows and field barns.

Spectacular waterfalls and woodland contrast with the scattered remains of former mine workings which remind us of the area's rich industrial heritage. It’s clear that the Yorkshire Dales is a special landscape of vast beauty and character - the perfect walking holiday destination.
