Walk Description

This beautiful circular walk takes in many of the highlights of mid-Wensleydale while offering quiet, peaceful paths away from the crowds in between.

Start the day admiring the three separate cascades that make up the spectacular Aysgarth Falls, followed by some lovely walking through classic Dales’ pastures leading up to impressive 600-year-old Bolton Castle.

You return to Aysgarth enjoying beautiful views over Wensleydale from the high moors of Bolton Parks and via the pretty village of Carperby. The Wheatsheaf Inn in Carperby provides the chance for a well-earned drink near the end of your walk, before returning across fields to Aysgarth.

While not a long walk, you can easily spend all day on this route if you would like to spend some time at the waterfalls and go into Bolton Castle.
