Re: Yorkshire Dales

He got in from Ingleborough an hour ago.

'How was it?'
'Pretty good'
'How long did it take then?'
'About three hours. What's for tea?'

I reckon he needs drug testing. Far too much energy.

Re: Yorkshire Dales

Just back from Middleham near Leyburn.
Took the grandson to that Forbidden Corner yesterday and stayed overnight in the digs next door.
Ace place,well worth a trip up,think we enjoyed it as much as he did.

Drove back down via Aysgarth and took in the Falls before heading home via Hawes and Ribblehead viaduct.

Stunning part of the world.

We did something similar - Forbidden Corner and Aysgarth in the day

FC very good,  as you say,  good fun for adults as well as kids

Spent the first 15 mins thinking "what the f*ck have we done" and the next 2 hours having a right old giggle

It certainly has.

Shit day at work but now sat in my garden in Redmire, in the sun, feet up, with a bottle of Old Peculier.

Good stuff.
Whernside is the better of the 3 IMO.

Decent day so imagine the views would have been spectacular.

Re: Yorkshire Dales

Just booked a place for Easter - some of you might remember we make an annual thing of it

Booked a place in Crackpot (which is pretty ironic) which is between Gunnerside and Reeth

Best bit is that I saw it on HomeAway and went ahead to book.  As I went to type in my credit card number I noticed it said "payment will be made to cottages.com" which piqued my interest

Quick look on cottages.com and it was £91 cheaper - no HomeAway 'assistance fee' to pay

You can have that for free Reg  big_smile

Fifteen miles walked up and down the river at Redmire over yesterday and today with wife and dog. Now chilling on sun loungers in our own little corner of the Yorkshire Dales.  Car not moved since I finished work Friday. If I knew how to, I'd put some photos on.  But then again I'd probably get dumped in the cunts thread big_smile

You can't be in the C*nts thread - having spent another lovely week in The Dales recently it's those not living there that need to have their bumps checked smile

Looking at you neck of the woods for next year,  Reeth,  Muker,  Hawes,  Aysgarth sort of quadrant

So have booked this place in Crackpot for our annual Easter trip to The Dales

You see.  Always have an eye on the bargain.

I'd offer you a beer, but I've only got six cans.

Re: Yorkshire Dales

Off up on saturday

Will be off to Bolton Castle so will take up LBB's earlier recommendation of Redmire and its falls

Will also have a tool up The Buttertubs Pass as it's highly recommended by all - can't guarantee I'll have a semi like I Wood but I'll do my best

Will take kids to York too - 8 year old is mad on the Vikings at the moment so will do Jorvik and the National railway Museum plus The Minster and the obligatory Shambles for the Mrs

Looking forward to it as always

An 8 year old in York, it has to include the Castle Museum, or at least it did for 8 year old me, Dick Turpin's cell was the highlight, nowadays it would be 'Dick who?'. No surely the Victorian street  will trump trains for any kid?
