From low level walks, to more challenging walks with Grade One scrambles (Necessary to use hands as well as feet, but NOT climbing). The Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and slightly further afield the Lake District offer such a variety of walks. Get a taster below.
From the village of Rosedale, walk in a westerly direction through fields, to near the head of the valley, where you can visit - Dale Head Farm Café - superb home baked goods. Afterwards a short steepish section (no need to rush) to the old iron, lime & lead workings. Then meander back to Rosedale, where there is a selection of other cafés on the Green. 7 miles 4 hours
From Chop Gate (pronounced Chop Yat) we walk up onto the heather clad - Cold Moor heading North until we reach the Cleveland Way, and the escarpment of the Cleveland Hills, we then head east down into Garfit Gap, until a short up hill onto the Wainstones a spectacular rocky outcrop used by rock climbers. After a tea or coffee (no café here, bring your own) we continue East to Urra Moor, desolate but equally beautiful return south to Chop Gate. An excellent pub in the village. 9 miles 5 to 6 hours
Starting at the National Trust car park in the village of Buckden, we take a track leading west then North, climbing steadily all the time until we reach the stone walled lower reaches of this mountain. The path then climbs more steeply, sometimes a little boggy in places (otherwise it wouldn't be the Yorkshire Dales) until we get fantastic open views across the dales. A recently repaired path takes us to the summit, then onto the memorial to a crashed Polish bomber & its' crew. We then return to the valley floor and the car park. Pubs in the valley.
Starting at Horton-in- Ribblesdale
From the beautiful village of Osmotherley to the west of the North York Moors we follow the Cleveland way towards Black Hambleton, but not quite reaching it. We turn north along a track with brilliant views of heather, until we reach Cod Beck - a reservoir - returning on ourselves we join the Coast to Coast path through wooded paths returning to Osmotherley and one of the best café I know. 7 miles 4 hours
