Yorkshire Dales Tea Rooms
The Yorkshire Dales are home to some of England’s most inspiring countryside, with heather moors, flat-topped hills and green valleys scattered with drystone dykes, farms and villages. The Dales are a paradise for walking and, after that, there’s no better way to end a day of exploring than with afternoon tea at a traditional tearoom. We have a variety of holiday cottages in the Yorkshire Dales to choose from, and none of them are far from cosy tearooms where you can enjoy a pot of freshly brewed tea and a slice of homemade cake. In the meantime, here are a few of our favourite Yorkshire Dales tearooms.
Award-winning tearooms by the Yorkshire Dales’ most famous waterfalls
With delicious food and river views, Mill Race is a must after a walk around spectacular Aysgarth Falls, in Wensleydale. You will find these traditional tearooms at an 18th century mill, overlooking the Upper Falls. Expect cakes, scones, biscuits and more than 20 teas, from Earl Grey to Chilli Chai.

Fresh Yorkshire Produce in the Heart of Malhamdale
Nestled on the banks of the River Aire in Malhamdale, this is the ideal place to stop for tea after visiting neigbouring landmarks such as Janet’s Foss, Gordale Scar or Malham Cove.

Delicious food with stunning views of the Lancashire and Yorkshire countryside
The Old Vicarage in the Ribbledale village of Tosside. It's actually in Lanchashire, but given its reputation for serving outstanding dishes prepared with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, who are we to quibble? Have a stroll in the stunning surrounding countryside, or take on the sterner challenge of a hike up Pen-y-Ghent before rewarding yourself with a pot of tea and a slice of delicious homemade cake.
