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..

Pretty limited with trains. Settle to Carlisle railway goes through some stunning scenery. You could get off at Ribblehead or Horton in Ribblesdale. Which is at the foot of pen y gent. Start of the three peaks.

Sure you can get a direct train from Leeds to Settle then on to Carlisle.

Re: Yorkshire Dales

Train to Settle - walk or bus up to Clapham, stopping at Austwick (Ye Olde Game Cock) on the way either for beer and food or overnight stay. Plenty of B&B/pubs in Clapham. If you hit the right time of year Bradford Caving club set up a Bosun's chair to drop you down Gaping Ghyll. Bit further up you've got Ingleton, with it's pubs, B&Bs waterfalls and caves and stuck between Ingleborough and Great Wherside.

I've stayed here for our wedding anniversary. Quality place, hot tub outside room, decent beer and well worth eating there. Michelin star chef when we went. Must have been about 8 courses. Went to wenslydale on the way to try shitloads of cheese.

Re: Yorkshire Dales

Going for it by train and bus for four nights, backpack, map and a handy bus timetable

First stop Burnsall then will try and get all the way up to Swaledale on those little old biddy hopper buses and then get the train back from Northallerton or similar.

I was going to do the Lakes as it's a lot easier, but the Lakes means a lot less to me and I need a proper Dales fix.

I need our lass to see something other than The London Eye and Leeds City Square in winter..

Cannot wait, looking forward to this more than a week in the villa in Santorini.. cool

Hawes is a must as I think is Malham. Do the Janets Foss walk but instead of turning left ar Gordale Scar go straight on and climb the waterfalls. http://www.yorkshiredales.org.uk/short- … s-foss.pdf

Your missus will love it.

Re: Yorkshire Dales

Stayed in Malham a couple of weeks ago - Lister Arms. Chef/patron trying to make a go of it. Food is pretty good as is the accomodation. Just need to work on the front of house service and they have crackd it.

Had to laugh at the hoardes of 'professional' walkers there were about. Designer this that and the other and those fucking ski sticks.

Agree with Placid the Janets Foss walk is excellent when you take in Goredale Scar. Then go over the clints and grikes at the top of Malham Cove and go down all those bloody steps. If you are lucky you might see the Peregrine Falcon as well.

Re: Yorkshire Dales

Went to Rosedale Show today. When you reach the top of Chimney Bank and look down over Rosedale Abbey you are treated to one of the best views in the world. One of those that has everything that's good about the Dales.
Proper show at Rosedale. Still prizes for jam, cakes etc. Old tractors and stuff. Compere was worth the admission alone.

She’s the main man in the office in the city and she treats me like I’m just another lackey, but I can put a tennis racket up against my face and pretend that I am Kendo Nagasaki...

Re: Yorkshire Dales

Goredale Scar, cant go wrong taking someone from another country there for a bit of Dales beauty.

Turner and Ward thought was worthy of getting the felt tips out:

Practically all the pubs on the main street are dog friendly mate.
Probably be a lot of bikers there in June...but they tend to gather in one particular boozer at the top of the village.
The Hawes to Hardraw falls circuit is a fantastic walk,about 6/7 miles but very scenic and you,ve no shortage of places for a nice pub lunch when you get back into Hawes.
