Places to stay in The Yorkshire Dales

It may not be quite as large as its close neighbour the Lake District, but the Yorkshire Dales offers spectacular views and countless secrets to discover in its river valleys and hills. Stunning green pastures and wild moorland hide an extensive network of caves that make the Dales as popular with potholers as it is with hikers.

Nestled among the Dales are dozens of little towns and villages, each with their own character and traditions. Whether you're in the National Park for hiking, cycling or just exploring the rustic settlements, you'll find lots to do in the Yorkshire Dales.

Five Free Things To Do In The Yorkshire Dales

Ribblehead Viaduct
Spanning nearly half a kilometre and rising over 100ft high at points, the sight of this railway viaduct never fails to impress.

Dales Countryside Museum
Children get in free to this museum, which is housed in a converted Victorian railway station in Hawes. Here they can find out all about how people have lived in the Dales for hundreds of years.

Wildlife spotting
The Dales is home to all kinds of feathered and furry creatures. Some of the best places to see them are at Aysgarth Falls, Grimwith Reservoir, Grass Wood and Snaizehome.

Bolton Abbey
Just on the outskirts of the National Park is this magnificent old monastery in stunning surroundings. Perfect for an afternoon walk on a sunny day.

Cat pottery
This pottery in the lovely village of West Burton, Wensleydale is home to dozens of metal, ceramic and stone cats that can be seen lazing about in the gardens.
