The Yorkshire Dales National Park
Member Name: mal7442
Advantages: Fresh air - lots of wildlife - fantastic scenery - several attractions - very friendly people...
Disadvantages: Perhaps access, with its narrow twisty roads, however, well worth the trip for anyone...
The Yorkshire Dales National Park, one of Britains most beautiful areas of natural beaty, with thousands of people arriving each year to enjoy the lush green valleys, wildlife, attractions and limestone scenery.
Whether it be a visit to go walking, or simply to relax and get away, whatever your reason, the Yorkshire Dales will offer an enjoyable experience for people of all ages and walks of life.
Why not visit the limestone gorges of Malham Cove, explore several naturally formed caves and potholes, including the famous 'Buttercups'. Also visit the histric towns of the Vale of York, Ripon, Thirk, as well as participating in famous walks such as the Dales Way and the Coast-To-Coast walk.
From spending over 20 years here, I always have, and still always do see the continous smiles, and the satisfacion on everyone's face from visiting this wonderful place.
Also be sure to visit over popular locations within the Dales, including Aysgarth Falls, where Robin Hood was filmed. Also stop by and try the local cheese's and honey from Swaledale and Wensleydale, before visiting other beaty spots including; Bolton Abbey, Gordale Scare, Brimham Rocks, Waterfalls Walk, High Force, Hardraw Force.
With all this and more, and the Lake District within easy reach, I can recommend the Yorkshire Dales National Park to everyone and I know whoever you are, you will have a fantastic enjoyable experience.
Summary: Great Scenery & Attractions, Friendly People, A great day out!!!
