    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 Bishopdale...or Swaledale...or Wensleydale...or...

    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 park areas. Secondly, those roads often have either hedgerows (in the Vale of York) as in the rest of England, or dry-stone walls obscuring your view and before you know it, there's a flock of sheep or a hay transport coming your way at full speed (yep, those sheep know where they're going). Here and there, the roads are full of cattle grids which are metal bars fastened in the road along fields or moors so that you can drive across them but sheep cannot walk across. Thus, sheep often wander around freely as for instance around Gunnerside.
