Hills & Dales of Yorkshire

Coverdale, Wensleydale & Swaledale
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • classic landscapes of three Yorkshire Dales
  • stay in atmospheric Middleham, Aysgarth and Richmond
  • admire Castle Bolton and Aysgarth Falls

The Yorkshire Dales is an area of outstanding natural beauty and at its heart lie the fast-flowing rivers, the Cover, Ure and Swale, that have carved out the spectacular scenery that we see today.
This walk takes in what are, for me, some of the highlights of the Dales: ‘horsey’ Middleham, elegant Richmond, beautiful Aysgarth Falls and brooding Castle Bolton.
Peter Hunt, Inntravel
This varied walk starts with an exploration of little-known Coverdale from Middleham, with its historic castle and horse-racing stables, before heading along Wensleydale via Aysgarth Falls and Castle Bolton, and over to the market town of Richmond via Swaledale. En route, you walk past the mighty castles that stand guard over a rich landscape of traditional stone villages and verdant slopes criss-crossed by the dry-stone walls so characteristic of the Dales.
