Yorkshire Dales Holiday Cottages
The Yorkshire Dales is an upland area of the Pennines, mainly in the county of North Yorkshire. It encompasses deep river valleys and rugged hills which rise from the Vale of York to the hilltops of the Pennine watershed. It is a remote and sparsely populated part of England, characterised by green pastures, crisscrossed by drystone walls, and grazed by sheep and cattle. The countryside is wild and unspoiled, with great swathes of heather-covered moorland and hay meadows. The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a paradise for outdoor pursuits, with countless footpaths to explore, many of which lead to high hilltops, providing spectacular views across the region, or to tumbling waterfalls, or limestone cliffs and caves.
