Around 90% of Yorkshire Dales travellers explore the park by car. A set of wheels unlocks access to villages and trailheads, as well as secluded holiday cottages in the Yorkshire Dales countryside. There's nothing better than waking up to views of emerald-green fields and grazing Swaledale sheep. Alternatively, stay in lively market towns, like Skipton and Settle, where you'll be within strolling distance of cafes, pubs and boutiques. Local buses run throughout the summer, while trains arrive at Skipton, Settle and a handful of other villages.

Food & drink

Bite into farm-fresh Yorkshire Dales produce

From country pubs to fine-dining restaurants, you won't go hungry in the Yorkshire Dales. Save your appetite for farm-fresh fare, like sherry-braised pig's cheek, lavender sponge cake and crumbly cheese from the Wensleydale Creamery. No trip to northern England would be complete without devouring your fair share of Yorkshire pudding, a simple yet tasty dish made from eggs, flour and milk – they're best served with roast beef and lashings of gravy. Enjoy at local pubs or whip up your own roast dinners back at your holiday rentals cottage.
