The Yorkshire Dales are famous for their idyllic valleys and windswept peaks, which attract millions of hardy trekkers and nature lovers each year. Nestled in the heart of England across Cumbria and Yorkshire, the dales are perfect for walking tours, adventure treks, and hot tub holidays.
Scale the Three Peaks of Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside, or stay a little closer to sea level with a stroll around the flat plains of the Vale of York. There are scores of great walks all around the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and they can be tailored for people of any age, and any level of fitness. Try to make it to the top of at least one Yorkshire hill, so you can take in the stunning views of the country laid out below. When you’ve completed your trek, reward yourself with a relaxing evening at your cottage with a hot tub where you can rest up for the following day.
Holiday cottages with hot tubs allow you to really appreciate the rural atmosphere of this ancient land, where history was made. From your hot tub cottage, you can visit local sights such as Skipton Castle, Bolton Castle, and Fountains Abbey – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Or explore the many picturesque towns and villages where you will receive a warm Yorkshire welcome, and a strong cup of tea. And if you fancy something a little stronger, just call into one of the many breweries across the Dales – real ale is a way of life in this part of Yorkshire, and you will be spoilt for choice with the quality and quantity of the brews on offer.
By driving around the countryside, you will come across all kinds of natural and man-made treasures, from the waterfalls near Malham, to the limestone caves around Ingleton, and the family-owned dairies which produce melt-in-your-mouth Wensleydale cheese. Cottages with hot tubs in the Yorkshire Dales give you the freedom to explore the area like a local, then relaxing under the stars without a care in the world.
