    N Yorks - walking weekend - places to stay and walk

    Me and my mates are looking at a walking weekend away (4 of us)

    Dales or Moors…. Nice village with a pub…. A couple of walks of around 15 miles a pop

    So two sets of advice - where to stay and where to walk please!

    I’ve done a load of coastal walks (Robin Hoods Bay area) so maybe something in land…

    no better place, im there regular.
    ive stayed in many place but keel cottages are great for access to the village and the main road to get to other towns, they are at the top of the village at a place called "trigg point",
    there are of course some great cottages to rent down in the village.

    I would second Leyburn it is a lovely place and a good base with plenty of places to stay and has a nice vibe to it.

    Hawes is good, haven’t been for several years but it used to have an Indian restaurant too! Stayed there in the past and thoroighly enjoyed it.

    Avoid Malham, limited accomodation and v. expensive pubs! Stayed there in 2014, having not been for donkeys years, and was disappointed.

    Kettewell’s another of my favourites, Grassington’s good too. Rod’s suggestion of Leyburn’s a good call, he knows the area because he lives up there.


    Be sure to book the weather in advance, it can make or break this type of trip!

    I used to live in Middleham for a year…. So, know Leyburn well…. Was a bit more ‘up market’ when I went back around 4 years ago…. Nice spot! I stayed in East Whitton last time I was up there…

    Another shout for Hawes here. The Chippie is epic, good pubs are plentiful and there's lots of decent accommodation. Loads of fine walking to be had close by on Ingleborough and Whernside.

    Despite it being my local area (roughly) I'm not much of a walker, but I'd suggest The Board at Lealholme as a base. Apparently it's a great area for walking and the village and pub are lovely.

    Herriot Way

    This walk looks good to me. I am giving it a go next Easter.
    You could do half of it maybe?

    Yorkshire 3 peaks if you're up for a challenge one day.

    Some nice walks I remember from childhood hikes. Roseberry Topping, Goathland and Bolton Abbey.

    I went to Fountains Abbey yesterday, that's a nice day out too.
