Swaledale Essentials

It’s easy to leave the pressures of everyday life behind in Swaledale. With miles of hills, moorland, and mountains to explore, and few modern distractions, you can walk, cycle or ride to your heart’s content. Stroll in any direction and you’ll find fields of wildflowers, waterfalls, grouse and hares. And when night draws in, head for the sleepy villages of Reeth, Grinton or Gunnerside and spend a relaxing hour in a traditional tearoom or a quiet country pub.
