Re: Yorkshire Dales

Knights Stainforth is a great site. Just past Settle. Great pub up the hill. Free wi-fi and a very good playground for the kids which you can see from virtually any pitch on the site...  and a river for paddling.
Read the reviews.

Zoo? Thought that was kicking out time along the main street.

Nah, there used to a small zoo with 4 penguins, a monkey and a one eyed tiger. We went there on a school trip at the juniors. Seemed massive. Near the pitch an putt.

Did it have one of these as well?

Mentioned on a another thread but anyone done the Black Sheep or Theakstons brewery tours in Masham? Worth going for a look?

Cheers in advance.

Done the Black Sheep one, it is OK, but one brewery keg is like any other brewery keg to be honest. They have a nice little cafe where you can have a pint or two. There are one or two decent boozers in the market place just up the road.

Recommend, time permitting, you do the Settle to Carlisle railway if you can. Stunning scenery, sit on the left side of the train going forward.

Cheers Mita. To be honest looking on the internet the Theakstons one seems to be the better of the two, but as you say I'm sure they're going to be pretty similar.

I'd thought about the Settle-Carlisle railway but our lass is scared of bridges believe it or not so I'm not sure how she would take to the Ribblehead viaduct and such!

Re: Yorkshire Dales

Done the Theakston's one - an interesting hour and an excuse for a decent pint before / after in their little bar.

I don't believe that the oak casks are no better than the steel ones for flavour in Old Peculiar though.  Take that up with them will you?

By the way, went to Fountaine Inn at Linton on the recommendation of someone off here.  Brilliant scran as described and a great spot.  Ta.  Unfortnately it closes for 2 months from July 1 to end of Aug.

Re: Yorkshire Dales

Highly recommend the New Inn in Clapham.  Excellent food.  We picked it from a "dog-friendly" web site as we wanted to take our mutt walking with us.

The place itself was very dog-friendly, unlike the psychopathic Jack Russel that attacked said mutt in the bar, much to the amusement of the gathered yokels.

Looking forward to heading up to the dales for a bit of time later on this year.  My brother is getting married in Penrith in August so me and the wife are heading up through the countryside for a bit of a scenic trip.  She is from Lincolnshire so would not know a hill if it bit her on the arse.

Really looking forward to retreading through some of the old places we went as kids, Malham Cove and the Limestone pavement, Janet's Foss, the Ribblehead Viaduct etc.

On the way home from Penrith, we'll head through the Lakes and see a bit of that countryside.  All new experiences for her.  Seems odd to think that we have travelled 12,000 miles to Oz for a holiday, but we have n't bothered to trail 250 miles north of London for a taste of the UK

You can get to Penrith through the dales. Make sure you go via Tan Hill for the highest pub in England.

See the walking thread for pics of lakes.

On one of my rare trips out of old London Town I once went to the Inn Tan Hill. It was very nice if a little cold.

Re: Yorkshire Dales

Will be in Fearby/Masham last week of july. Any must do´s? Breweries and most pubs checked out but what else? Will probably not go that far, stay in wensleydale and around there. Will go down to watch the pre-season at elland road against newcastle, problems with sunday traffic? (we have not hired a car) Easiest and fastest way Masham to Leeds?

I suspect Masham to Leeds without a car will be a nightmare - others will know more.

You can get a 36 bus from Ripon to Leeds. Nearest train station is Thirsk or North Allerton. There's a direct train from Leeds to Harrogate then you can probably get a bus to Masham from Harrogate.

Getting a cab in Sweden is probably 5 times more expensive....maybe a helicopter then..:D Or bus 36 to ripon and then a cab.

Lovely boozer, as has been said; sat by the river on a summers day is f**king sublime. Loads of good ales on, great scenery. Appletreewick is just a nice walk away and again, quality drinks and views all round. Grassington's not far either, someone mentioned the fountain at Linton which does smashing grub as well as top notch beer. Thinking about it, you can't go wrong in most pubs in the dales, it's just ace. Have a brilliant holiday.

P.S. If you end up going to addingham don't forget to stop in at the old station for fish and chips, don't go to the other one; they don't batter their fish, they batter their children. No, but seriously folks, they fry in vegetable oil which is almost as bad. Also, aviod the crown, even though it used to be my local its gone badly downhill. On the other hand the sailor which I went in a couple of weeks ago for the first time in about 10 years was excellent.. if a little quiet.

Re: Yorkshire Dales

Any recommendations for us non-campers? Need to be able to get there on train and a short cab or walk, pubs with board. Sure we've done this already. Thinking about going up to Lakes and working it back down to Knaresborough. Week after Middlesbough home game..
