6. Hay Meadows at Muker (Dales)
The attractive village of Muker is the base for a walk in the hay meadows (best in June) of Upper Swaledale.
Hidden away in the eastern Dales, Dallowgill has pretty woodland, open moors and many undiscovered delights.
One of the best preserved abbey ruins is at Rievaulx surrounded by woodland, moor and river. The monks chose well.

An old country house, a lovely unspoilt village and a riverside stroll are all included in this short walk from Pooley Bridge.
