The Druid’s Temple & Masham Moor

Given the rather unpredictable nature of the weather forecast this weekend we didn’t stray too far from home. We ventured over to Masham for a slightly longer than usual walk to make the most of the December sunshine – and what a Christmas cracker of a walk it was! It had it all: blue skiesContinue reading “The Druid’s Temple & Masham Moor”

5 Wanders in Wensleydale

Wensleydale is without a doubt one of the most popular dales. Crammed full of tumbling waterfalls, lush meadows and of course the famous Wensleydale Creamery, people flock from far and wide to experience all that Wensleydale has to offer. The waterfalls deserve a blog entirely of their own, so today I’m going to focus onContinue reading “5 Wanders in Wensleydale”

If You Go Down to the Woods Today: 5 Woodland Walks in North Yorkshire

There’s something magical about the woods at any time of year. The first buds of new life in Spring; the carpet of wildflowers and dappled sunbeams in Summer; the blazing riot of Autumn colours; the eerie whistle of the wind through the skeletal forests of Winter.

The Wonders of Wharfedale: 4 Favourite Walks

Wharfedale is made up of every single thing that springs to mind when you ask someone to describe the Yorkshire Dales.

Super Swaledale: 6 Walks for the Uninitiated

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I bang on about Swaledale all the time. I am 100% guilty and completely unapologetic! Swaledale is my absolute favourite part of the Dales. It is more rugged than the ever-so-slightly manicured Wensleydale to the South, and much quieter than the tourist hotspots of Malhamdale and Ribblesdale.Continue reading “Super Swaledale: 6 Walks for the Uninitiated”
