Check in to the 16th-century Simonstone Hall Hotel, a haven of luxury and rolling countryside views in the Western Dales. While it’ll be difficult to pull yourself away from its gorgeous rooms and suites, refined dining space, and manicured garden, there’s Yorkshire to discover.
Descend into the extraordinary chamber of Gaping Gill—Britain’s largest underground cave chamber. As you explore, you’ll see the Fell Beck waterfall as it crashes 300 feet from the cave’s lip to the cavern floor.
Reward your efforts with a visit to the iconic Wensleydale Creamery. You’ll gain an insight into the thousand-year history of cheese-making in the Yorkshire Dales while appreciating a millennium of taste improvements via your cheese tasting.
Spend a day in Yorkshire’s rich countryside. You’ll fish for salmon in the River Ure, shoot clays over heather-furred moorland, and lace up your boots for a trek in the Dales’ varied and stunning landscapes.
Afterward, see the North Yorkshire moors from above on a gliding adventure. Stay up in the stars with dinner at The Wensleydale Heifer; its Michelin starred menu is the ideal return to sophistication after your day in rugged nature.
