Swaledale

Discover Swaledale

At the tip of the Dales stands the unspoilt wilderness of Swaledale. Famous for its wildflower meadows, heather moors and waterfalls, the region is also home to some of Yorkshire’s best walking and cycling. When it comes to peace, tranquillity and natural beauty, few locations offer more.

Keep your eyes out for the annual Swaledale Festival which is a two week festival of music and arts based in the two most northerly of the Yorkshire Dales, Swaledale and Wensleydale.
