“A fine walk through the heart of the Dales following the river valleys/dales from Ilkley to Kendal”.
For anyone attempting their first multi day walk the Dales Way is ideal. Aside from a remote section in the middle the Dales Way generally follows the valleys and dales on low level ground, is well sign posted and visits many of iconic sites and views of the Yorkshire Dales.

The following are included when booking a Self Guided Walking Holiday
You may have to be a little flexible on the start date due to the availability of accommodation. In some places (Ribblehead, Sedbergh) it can be difficult getting 1 night stays over the weekend. Therefore we may have to change your start date by a day or so either side.
As a rule we do not book holidays for single travellers. It becomes very expensive as most accommodation do not offer reductions or single travellers.
We do accept parties with dogs (we have them ourselves) but it may limit the choice of accommodation.
