A great value, weekend break, taking us on a wonderfully scenic guided tour of the Yorkshire Dales, where it can be wild and windswept or quietly tranquil with valleys full of hay meadows, drystone walls and barns. We enjoy a guided tour of this stunning area and spend time in the glorious market towns of Skipton and Grassington.
