Description

Embark on an extraordinary adventure through the renowned Yorkshire Dales National Park with Mountain Goat. The Yorkshire Dales National park is globally recognized for its exceptional landscape, featuring rolling emerald hills intersected by countless miles of dry stone walls, dramatic limestone crags, and a plethora of charming towns and villages. Our journey commences at 09:15, departing from York and heading through the plains of York where will start to delve into the region's historical significance. Its not long before the landscape starts to change the we quickly understand why this landscape is so loved. After heading through the delightful scenery of Nidderdale and Wharfedale our first stop brings us to the captivating village of Grassington. With a history dating back to Roman times, this enchanting settlement boasts a quaint Market Square, delightful shops, and cozy cafes and pubs. Grassington has gained recent fame as the filming location for the picturesque village of Darrowby in the new series of 'All Creatures Great and Small.' Continuing onward, we venture off the beaten path and into the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Our route continues its journey through the idyllic Wharfedale valley before ascending to the highest road in the Dales, Beggermans Pass. Along the way, we'll encounter awe-inspiring vistas, tranquil villages, and recognizable filming locations from the new series of 'All Creatures Great and Small.' Beggermans Pass ultimately delivers us to the unofficial capital of the Yorkshire Dales, Hawes, situated at a lofty 589 meters above sea level. This historic market town provides a quintessential Dales experience, offering a bustling town center with inviting pubs and the esteemed Wensleydale Creamery, where you can savor the legendary cheese. Following a leisurely lunch, we delve deeper into Wensleydale to uncover the illustrious Robin Hood Waterfalls, more formally known as Aysgarth Falls. This cinematic location was featured in 'Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.' Take your time admiring the cascading waterfalls before we proceed to our final stop at Castle Bolton. This 14th-century fortress, home to the Le Scrope Family, invites you to enjoy tea and coffee within its ancient walls. Explore the magnificent gardens, observe the majestic Birds of Prey, wild boar, and relish the panoramic views across Wensleydale. For an additional fee, you may choose to visit Mary Queen of Scots' Bedroom or scale the tower for a breathtaking photo opportunity. As we bid farewell to Castle Bolton, we are treated to one last view over Wensleydale before descending back into the plains of York and returning to the city.
