It didn’t take long to come up with a list of our favourite walks but it did take a while to narrow them down! There are so many great walks in Yorkshire we really are spoilt for choice.

These are our favourite local (ish) walks.

Click on the links for more information about each of them.

  1. Bolton Abbey – There are various family friendly walks around the Estate including seasonal events. Our favourites being the Welly Walk and Strid Wood.
  2. Malham – A stunning area comprising of the The Cove, Gordale Scar and Janet’s Foss. They can be done on their own or altogether for a superb walk.
  3. Swinsty Reservoir – An easy 3 mile pram friendly route around the reservoir.
  4. Fountains Abbey – A great day out for all the family all year round. The Abbey is unreal!!
  5. Ilkley Moor – An explorer’s paradise with the Cow & Calf rocks, the Tarn and the moors.
  6. Embsay Crag – A short hill climb with spectacular views over the reservoir and Skipton.
  7. Grimwith Reservoir – A longer reservoir walk exposed to all the elements.
  8. Linton Falls – Grassington is a beautiful village leading down to Linton Falls. The water flows through a magnificent gorge whilst upstream offers an idyllic swimming spot.
  9. Brimham Rocks – The best place to learn about taking risks and have a picnic!
  10. Skipton Woods – On our doorstep, a short easy walk behind the castle packing a lot in.
