Tour de Yorkshire, Stage 3, Richmond to Scarborough Saturday 5 May!


There’ll be great excitement again at the beginning of May when the Tour de Yorkshire comes to the dales. Stage One and Two are in south and west Yorkshire but on Saturday 5 May the peloton will be setting of from Richmond market place to attempt the 184 kms ending up in Scarborough.

The route will take them into Wensleydale through Leyburn then out into the Vale of York and to Morton on Swale and on to Northallerton and Thirsk with the task of riding up oh so long and steep Sutton Bank in the North York Moors to Scarborough on the coast.

Stay on one of cottages in the dales and join them with your flags and cheers and spur these guys on in their task. Pretty Richmond with it’s cobbled market place, purportedly the largest in England, and stay awhile when the cyclists have departed to browse the shops, the castle and if weather permits a paddle or even a dip in the river Swale.

Or Leyburn, there’s sure to be lots of excitement as the cyclists now warmed up wizz round the market place on their quest. Again linger a while, lots of cafés, pubs to visit, a couple of restaurants, probably a few pop up café’s too. Stroll along The Shawl with it’s fantastic views of Wensleydale, truly breath taking, or just explore the town with lots of independent shops to spend some time in too.

If you’d like to book a cottage you know who to call on 01969 663559 or book online just to the left of this page. See you there!
