Attractively located where the borders of Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria meet, a base at our park offers you the opportunity to explore each of these fabulous counties.
Whilst visiting us is not possible just yet, we thought we’d share some inspiration to tantalise your lockdown weary travel buds and help you plan your itinerary for when you are able to escape.
This series of features will take you through some of the highlights of each county and offer some snippets of advice to help you make the most of your short break.
This month we will share our top tips for a visit to Yorkshire. Riverside Caravan Park tickles the border of the Yorkshire Dales and is close to the village of Ingleton, famous for its caves and falls.
Journey a little further and you’ll discover gems such as Clapham (more caves), Austwick and the market town of Settle. The Rainbow Town of Settle has an abundance of eateries and boutique shops many of which, when they are allowed to re-open, will offer discount to NHS workers as an ongoing thank you tribute. Find out more about these offers here.
We’ve got cheese too! The award-winning Courtyard Dairy, on the A65 towards Settle supports small, raw cheese makers and has a wonderful cheese shop where unique and niche cheese is in abundance. It features a small museum of cheese-making.
Malham is a must see location on your tour of our local dales. With the spectacular limestone pavement at Malham Cove, Janet’s Foss and a sramble up Gordale Scar offering an educational and energetic walk out.
For those who don’t mind travelling a little further, a day out to Bolton Abbey in Wharfedale is a hit with all age groups. With space to roam for kids (and canines) and access to over 80 miles of footpath, its a great way to see the traditional dales landscape combined with monastic heritage.
It is tough to pick a shortlist from this fabulous county as there is so much to offer so we will re-visit North Yorkshire and take you on a journey up in to Hawes and the northern dales next time.
