Where you’ll be

Grassington, England, United Kingdom

Trips out.
1) Grassington Moor / Yarnbury Rising to 1,200 feet
Turn left at the end of Garrs End Lane into the Main Street. Drive past the Town Hall, leaving it on your right. Continue up hill for as far as you can go. Park. Walk/Contour around to your right. Leadmining remains and notice boards. The Old Chimney is a good high point to aim for. Great views over Wharfedale.

2) Simon’s Seat. 1,591 feet
Drive down to Appletreewick via Hebden or Burnsall. Continue for a mile or so and turn left up a rough track that leads to Howgill. Park on the right near a notice board before entering the campsite area. The path leads up to the right. Follow this for a challenging hour uphill before reaching open heather moorland. Simon’s Seat is an impressive outcrop of millstone grit with a commanding view of Wharfedale. It is well worth the initial hard graft to gain height!

3) Great Whernside. (Not to be confused with Whernside, one of the three Peaks alongside Penyghent and Ingleborough). 2,310 feet
Drive to Kettlewell. Turn right up the dramatic gradient of Park Eash: 800 to 1600 feet in the short space of two and a half miles! Park at the col / watershed, just past some cattlegrids. Walk right, up to the summit, which is a good one and a half hours’ of exhilarating walking. The first stretch is on an ancient earthwork. The second stretch is hard work up a steep gradient. The third stretch is easy once you have recovered from the disappointment that there is a false summit cairn at the northern end of this characteristically whaleback mountain. Only two and a half miles from car to top. Simples?

4) Penyghent. 2,273 feet
Drive to the very head of Littondale, through Arncliffe, (No stopping at the somewhat Spartan pub!) Litton and Halton Gill. Turn left up a dramatic road that after four miles comes to the Pennine Way at 1,391 feet. Park here and head north along the Pennine Way. Reach a dry stone wall and turn right. It can be a bit hairy here if the wind is blowing as you clamber up the limestone escarpment on your way to the summit.

5) Malhamdale via the fabulous road from Arncliffe over Darnbrook Fell to Malham Tarn. Go out of season or late in the day to the phenomenal Malham Cove, the delightful Malham Village, the overpowering Goredale Scar and the magical Janet’s Foss.
6) Kilnsey Crag – Majestic overhanging limestone cliff, much beloved of rock climbers.
7) Kilnsey Fish Farm. Expensive to fish there, but a good farm shop. And a pub.
8) Stump Cross Caverns. A tad expensive, but ideal on a rainy day.
9) Wensleydale Hawes Semer Water Bishopdale
10) Dentdale Ribblehead Viaduct Garsdale Head
11) Skipton Castle Skipton Market Canal Eshoes
12) Villages: Hawkswick Arncliffe Buckden Linton
13) Pubs: Arncliffe Hubberholme Cray Appletreewick Linton Burnsall
14) Grassington! Three Pubs. Various food outlets. One posh restaurant at Grassington House Hotel. Clothes shops. A delicatessen. A Spar shop. Threshfield Spar for a brilliant butcher’s. A museum. National Park office. A bookshop. Cosy cafés. A shoe shop. The River Wharfe. Linton Falls. Grass Woods. The Stepping Stones. Hebden café.
