I’ve been trying to be more active recently….walking, running, that sorta thing. My husband takes a bit of coaxing into walking (he views it as a means to getting somewhere…not as a pleasure) and so I booked a weekend away in the Yorkshire Dales where we were get some good walking in….but the reward for him was he got to see some waterfalls (he loves them).
We stayed a few nights at a B&B called Halsteads Barn in Bentham, which I wholeheartedly recommend. Janet who runs the B&B is a fantastic cook and spoiled us rotten. When she brought out a chilled bottle of prosecco to us in the outdoor hot tub overlooking the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales…I did consider asking if we could stay forever!
Ingleton Falls did not disappoint – the trail is around 2-4hrs long (depending on how fast you walk and how many times you stop to take photos!). There are a few slippy places and quite a few steps, but it’s mostly a relatively easy walk. There was a real variety of people walking the trail from families with small children to couples to older folk. If you’re ever in the area and love walking in beautiful places, check the trail out. There’s obviously lots of other wonderful walks in the area, including those near the Ribblehead Viaduct, which is just gorgeous to look at (I love a good bridge).
On the way back to Leeds, we dropped in at RHS Harlow Carr gardens to have a wander around the beauty with a pastry and cuppa from Betty’s in hand. Lovely.
