Cottage Holidays in Wensleydale

Many visitors arrive in Wensleydale having heard about the spectacular scenery. The region’s excellent footpaths, which include the Pennine Way, provide an easy way for visitors to immerse themselves in the landscape, enjoying views of the River Ure and the valley. The area has several waterfalls including Aysgarth, which has the highest drop of any single waterfall in England, Redmire Force and Hardraw Force. Cotter Force has a buggy and wheelchair-friendly path to make it accessible for everyone. The Red Squirrel Trail at Widdale, only a few miles away, is also a popular choice.

Cycling is another fantastic way to explore and there is a bike shop in Hawes where visitors can hire road and mountain bikes for a full or half-day. Yorkshire’s sweeping roads and far-reaching views make it ideal for touring by bicycle - so much so that the Tour de France used the area for the first stage of the 2014 competition. Alternatively, tackle the “Tan Hill Toughie” route and reward your efforts with a cold drink at the highest pub in England, the Tan Hill Inn.

Lake Semerwater is another favourite beauty spot with a choice of paths as well as the opportunity to fish, sail and canoe. Close by, the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) provides plenty more ways to enjoy being outdoors.

Hearty appetites are a pleasure to satisfy with the wonderful food and drink that is so widely available. A visit to the Wensleydale Creamery is a must not only for the shop but also for the cafe and restaurant which serve a seasonal menu inspired by the best of the Dales. The main market town in Wensleydale is Hawes and there is a good choice of places to shop, eat and drink. While you’re there, spend some time learning about the area’s history in the Dales Countryside Museum.

Local attractions include the Grade II listed Aysgarth Edwardian Garden, Jervaulx Abbey, and the impressive Ribblehead Viaduct. The magic of The Forbidden Corner appeals to children, while even the most cynical teenager will find it hard not to be impressed by the size of Middleham Castle, home to Richard III, and Bolton Castle.

Wensleydale is beautiful at any time of the year, with something for everyone no matter what their age or interest. Whether you’re a couple on a romantic week touring historic houses and gardens, an active family in search of outdoor adventure, or a gastronome planning to gorge yourself on the local delicacies, a holiday here is one to savour.
