Weather

Yorkshire has a lot going for it, but one thing it’s not known for is the weather. No matter what time of the year you visit, even in the summer, you’ll likely get caught in the region’s signature drizzle. ... Read more
However, don’t let it put a damper on your trip: simply pack a rain jacket, waterproof shoes and an umbrella so you’ll be nice and comfortable during outdoor strolls. Though you’ll encounter more crowds on your vacation, summer does tend to be a better bet in terms of less rain and more sunshine with average temperatures in the high 50s and low 60s Fahrenheit (high teens Celsius). Winters can be quite dreary, not only because of the grey skies and constant rainfall, but because of the limited daylight.

Our property is situated within 15 minute drive from the stunning hills of Wensleydale and half an hour of the many other surrounding Yorkshire Dales. Breathtaking scenery and endless walks and country pubs to enjoy.

Located about 80 km from Manchester, the Yorkshire Dales National Park attracts over 8 million visitors every year. Most visitors come to the area to hike and bike and remain impressed by the beauty of the views it offers. Highly recommended.

Had an amazing holiday here in August 2009 walking the Dales way. Gorgeous, often brutal but stunning, scenery and a very accessible network of public footpaths. Think Bronte sisters.

For some of the most picturesque countryside in England, visit the villages in and around the Yorkshire Dales, known simply as the Dales. The Dales is a collection of river valleys and the hills among them. You’ll see flocks of sheep out at pasture, flowing rivers, old rock walls, and attractive villages all over the area. At the villages, stop for tea, drink a pint at the local pub or micro-brewery, and try some nice regional cuisine. Popular stops include: Settle, Skipton, Ilkley Ripon, Masham and Harrogate. The region is also popular with walkers because of the many miles of public footpaths.
