As the Cottage is in the Yorkshire Dales there are endless walks available!  Below will hopefully provide you with a taster of the type of scenery we are lucky enough to have on our doorstep.


Gibbside Wood is at the rear of the Cottage and the footpath starts at the end of the drive.  A circuit is possible along this route and will take approximately 90 minutes.  Very popular route with walkers!


The Leeds-Liverpool Canal can be joined at Cononley Lane End (1 mile from the Cottage). 


As shown on the Home Page the River Aire runs through the Village.  Part of the 30 minute circuit can be viewed from the Cottage.  A different route takes you around an hour along a different stretch of the river.

Near Skipton

Sharphaw is a small but challenging hill on Grassington Road, close to Skipton.  This view shows Flasby Fell and the other side of Sharphaw can be seen from the Cottage.


A 4 mile walk is available along the road.  Half way round you can see the above view of the Village.  Further along the route you can see Bradley and Skipton.  There's a short steep hill early on so requires some fitness level!

Near Skipton

Fewston Reservoir is located inbetween Skipton and Harrogate.  It's 3.7 miles and the well maintained paths and beautiful surroundings make it a perfect stroll.


Malham has lots to offer includings its infamous Cove and Limestone Pavement.

The Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks

This walk is well known by most keen-walkers and at approximately 23 miles is not for the light-hearted!

Penyghent (694m) is pictured above.  Whernside (736m) and Ingleborough (723m) shown on the right.

Bolton Abbey

There are over eighty miles of footpaths across some of the most spectacular countryside in England. Whether you wander beside the river, cross the exposed purple heights of the heather moorland or explore the woodland nature trails, there is something for everyone.


Ingleton Waterfalls Trail

The trail is 4.5 miles long (8 km) and leads you through ancient oak woodland and magnificent Yorkshire Dales scenery via a series of stunning waterfalls and geological features.
