A popular holiday destination for those seeking some time away from the rat race, the Yorkshire Dales is a 'must' for anyone who appreciates breath-taking scenery. Home to one of the UK's most unique landscapes, The Dales is a walkers paradise with ever changing scenery made all the more diverse and beautiful by the temperament of the weather.

Malham, in particular, is a must on the to-do list for visitors to the area. Known for its limestone cliffs, miles of ancient stone walls and lush green fields, it is a superb backdrop for fascinating walks. The area is so unique, in fact, that is has been deemed a 'Site of Special Scientific Interest'. The highly protected area is home to plenty of wildlife for those on the lookout. Visitors to Malham should also be sure to make their way to Malham Cove – an intriguing natural limestone formation that has been created over millions of years.

The Yorkshire Dales is home to Wensleydale – a beautifully scenic area, with vast moorland, dotted with pretty waterfalls. Making a trip to see the Aysgarth Falls, in particular, will not disappoint. Those more interested in man-made creations should visit the fascinating ruins of Middleham Castle, built in 1190.

Moving closer to Cumbria is the quaint farming community of Dentdale. It is an area steeped in history, with remnants from the Vikings, who settled there in the 10th Century. Though home to only one village, there is plenty to see and do in this scenic spot. The Dent Brewery is well worth a visit for the guided tours and award-winning ales.

Depending on where you stay in the national park, cottages in Yorkshire Dales can provide the perfect base for exploring the many attractions of this magnificent county. Visit Bronte Country, the North York Moors for a day by the sea or swap the coast for the Lakes with a trip to Windermere. If you prefer to be out in the fresh air exploring by bike, take on part of the Yorkshire Dales Cycleway, the Coast to Coast challenge or follow the route of the Tour de Yorkshire.

The vast Yorkshire Dales provides some of the prettiest unspoilt scenery to be found in the UK. Whether you are looking for holiday cottages near major Dales attractions or want to get off the beaten track away from it all, our independent owners are here to share the savings of booking direct and provide a warm Yorkshire welcome.
