Typical Day

A typical day will start with collection from your hotel at around 9am. If we were on a Herriot Country Tour we would then drive out to the market town of Masham, then onto Jervaulx Abbey, stopping at the tea room for refreshments, From here we would continue through beautiful countryside to Middleham with its famous castle, past Aysgarth Falls and Castle Bolton to Hawes.

Here we would stop at the Wensleydale Creamery to sample some delicious Wensleydale Cheese before heading to Hadraw to visit the longest singe drop waterfall in Yorkshire.

We would stop for lunch at Simonstone Hall, a grade II listed building with a fantastic terrace with views down Wensleydale and peacocks roaming the gardens.

After lunch we would ascend over Buttertubs Pass into Swaledale, This is a spectacular route, one Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame describes as "England's only truly iconic road".

From here we will drive past quaint Dales villages through fields with dry stone walls, field barns and wild flower meadows to Reeth. From Reath we visit Richmond with its Norman Castle and Georgian architecture, stopping for afternoon tea before returning our guests back to their accommodation at about 5.30pm.
