Newby Hall Gardens
This is a beautiful garden to visit and a great day out.Originally we were going to visit Thorp Perrow Arboretum, just a few miles away from the site we were staying on but as we had a two for the price of one voucher for Newby Hall, it made better economic sense to go...
Jervaulx Abbey comes as a pleasant surprise, not over-hyped or full of forbidding notices. It is actually on private land and admission is by honesty box.It is reputedly the second largest privately owned cistercian church in the UK.Parking is across the road outside the...
Our Easter break 2011 was spent in Wensleydale, on a small site in the village of Thornton Steward, between Leyburn and Bedale.We were booked on to a 5 van only site which was well off the beaten track and completely away from any roads. The site offered perfect peace and...
Another waterfall we couldn't miss, just off the Pennine Way, in ideal conditions.This fall is walked to from the village of Hardraw, north of Hawes. You have to enter through the Green Dragon Pub and pay an entry fee as the grounds belong to them. It is a short walk along a...
Set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, on the banks of the River Wharfe, the historic estate of BOLTON ABBEY is the Yorkshire home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Visitors are drawn to its breathtaking landscape - just under 30,000 acres of countryside. You can...
The Tennants Arms
2 minutes walk down the road from our B & B (Kilnsey Old Hall) was this wonderful place to eat. The Tennants Arms is a hotel/pub/restaurant on the main road of Kilnsey. The pub is a large traditional country pub with beamed ceilings and original fireplaces. There are several...
THE TEA COTTAGE: WONDERFUL VIEWS OF THE ABBEY
Before we all ventured out to the Abbey itself, it was "tea time". We ( Hans and I, June (poons), Sue (Suet), Angie (Angiebabe) and Sue (Suvanki ) headed for THE TEA COTTAGE and took an outside table at the Tea Terrace, overlooking the wonderful Bolton Abbey Priory. We all...
Swaledale Woollens: Hand knitted sweaters
Swaledale Woollens is a place where your average knitted sweater or cardigan costs quite a bit more than at Poundstretcher. To justify this, you get little tags on each garment, telling you who actually knitted it and what yarn she used! It could say something like "Mrs...
There are sheep dog trials and shows in the Dales every summer. You can see dogs in action at the farm shows in Muker and Reeth in Swaledale in spring and autumn, but there are also shows in Hawes once a week summertime. Check with the tourist offices to see the times during...
All over the Yorkshire Dales you will see these walls, constructed by stone and stone alone. This is a special way to build and not many can do it these days but there are courses held every summer if you are interested (check with the local tourist offices).
I say this now so that you are prepared (and this is true for most people I know)...the Yorkshire Dales are very addictive. Once you've seen them, you will want to come again and again and in fact, you will feel like uprooting there and then and move all your belongings to...
Because of public transport, you're often better off driving yourself in Yorkshire - especially the Dales. Just bear in mind that driving conditions are special here. For a start, most roads are fairly narrow country lanes and again this is especially true for the national...
Yet another weekend spent in North Yorkshire, anyone would think we liked the area!!!This time we chose the tiny village of Fearby as our base, camping on a certificated site on the edge of the village.A great choice as we discovered lots of good rides for the...
Walking in Spectacular Countryside
We arranged to meet up with Nick's sister and husband during October half term 2003, and decided to stay at Little Cote CL. in Wensleydale. From the site, we set off for a leisurely stroll, or so we thought. Ian was in charge of the map so we left it to him. Louise and Ian...

Hiking in the Dales
There are lots of alternatives for those who want to walk in the Dales. The most famous paths to go through the park are the Coast to Coast walk, and the Pennine Way. The Coast to Coast walk enters Yorkshire from Cumbria up in Swaledale in the north and you follow that dale...

BOLTON ABBEY - THE GRAVEYARD
To me, the most peaceful and serene part of Bolton Abbey was THE GRAVEYARD. Many date back hundreds of years.I googled Bolton Priory Graveyard and came across the website "Mostly Haunted" which tells of a ghost story about Bolton Priory. It's as follows:"It is quite common...
BOLTON ABBEY - THE PRIORY
