Circular walk into Walden from West Burton in Wensleydale
A lovely walk from the Cauldron Falls in West Burton into Walden and back down via the old/now newly planted plantation. Park your car at the waterfall area or by the village green and please wear suitable clothing and good footwear as the route takes you through pasture and moorland. Always a good idea to plan your route and take the map. The walk is about seven miles, quite easy going but some inclines. Fantastic views all the way. If you’re staying at Hill Top Cottage in Walden please pick the route up at the *.
Walking on Wether Fell above Hawes in Wensleydale in the glorious Yorkshire Dales
The hills above Hawes in upper Wensleydale are places I’ve not really explored in all the time I’ve lived here, can’t really understand why but not for much longer I feel after a wonderful walk around Wether Fell.
Circular walk from Helwith Bridge and up Pen-y-Ghent in Ribblesdale
Since the weather has changed to being more spring like I’m really getting some walking done, which is great seeing as how our National Three Peaks Challenge seems to be fast approaching! This time it was Pen-y-Ghent.
Circular walk to Buckden Pike in Wharfedale in the Yorkshire Dales
Another great walk, with simply sensational views, and again it’s a walk I’ve never ventured on before, about nine and a half miles the way we went. Please do take your map for reference, OL30, and remember that even if it’s lovely and warm in the valley bottom it may be freezing cold when you reach the top.
Walk from Ribblehead Viaduct in the Yorkshire Dales, venturing up Whernside and back
Walking up Whernside in the Yorkshire Dales was definitely a first for me. A small group of us set off to scale the heights in early spring on quite a windy day with occasional low cloud covering the tops which just as soon appeared disappeared again.
Circular Walk from West Witton to Penhill Beacon and Trig Point in Wensleydale
My friend Denny and I have been walking the Yorkshire Dales together more than usual just lately (Den is the one in the picture) we’re in training to attempt the National Three Peaks, Ben Nevis, Scarfell Pike, and Mount Snowdon beginning of June
The Garden Rooms at Tennants in Leyburn, Wensleydale
Have you been to The Garden Rooms yet for lunch? To be found in Leyburn at Tennants. Next time you’re here make a date. For something special try the restaurant, always best book, or after a walk in the hills perhaps a bite to eat in the café or afternoon tea even.
Our cottages in Walden dale in the Yorkshire Dales
For the last couple of weeks Joanne and I have been visiting the cottages for their annual inspection by the VisitEngland assessor. Not all cottages are inspected every year but this year first on the list was Grange House and Hill Top Cottage in Walden.
Aysgarth Falls in the glorious Yorkshire Dales National Park
I can’t believe I’ve been writing a blog for so long and haven’t written about Aysgarth Falls. There might have been mention within walks on here but not specifically about the falls.
