Walking the Dales.

Self-guided walking tours in the Yorkshire Dales.

By: High50

This summer marks five years since the Yorkshire Dales National Park extended its boundary to include the Cumbrian Dales. Walks specialist Muddy Boots has marked the occasion by creating two self-guided walking tours that will give you the perfect Dales experience.

Hills of the Cumbrian Dales

With this self-guided itinerary guests spend three days’ yomping across these quiet Dales, which include Wild Boar Fell and the Howgills, while revelling in the creature comforts and gastronomic delights served at the cosy Black Swan in the village of Ravenstonedale and the acclaimed foodie haunt, The Black Bull in the ‘book town’ of  Sedbergh.

The Wharfedale Ramble

This six-night trip is aimed at those who prefer a gentle walking pace rather than a full-on hike. There are two hotel-to-hotel days and then three optional circular day walks, all following routes through classic Dales scenery -meandering rivers, meadows criss-crossed by drystone walls and open moorland. Along the way, fans of Channel 5’s remake of All Creatures Great and Small will be able to spot some of the locations used, ahead of filming beginning for a second series.

There are a string of good pubs and cafes along the route so plenty of ways to rest up and refuel.
