I went to escape the trials of life again this weekend at Kettlewell in Wharfedale, the Yorkshire Dales:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Very hot for walking.  My original hope was to do the Wharfedale three peaks in a day - Birks fell, Great Whernside and Buckden pike, about 16 miles total.  But the heat and family mutiny put paid to that idea, instead we walked over Birks fell one day, and up Great Whernside the next.

The Kettlewell hostel, though bookable through the YHA, is an independent hostel. Which means the food is quite a lot better than the now standardised and somewhat minimal YHA fare. It also serves as the village post office, and library-come-bookstore - shelves of second hand books line the lounge. Clever idea - people entertaining children, lone travelers staving off boredom etc start reading, then need to buy the book to finish it !

Hahahahaha - a family mutiny when ours were growing up would have meant going to the cinema and not walking at all!!!

Looks beautiful, and a part of the country I have never visited.

I've always loved the Yorkshire Dales, especially some of the lesser known bits. It's a long time since I've spent any time there - I must drop some hints to Mr P.

Looks like a lovely part of the country, CH.
I have never been there, either.

I first explored the Yorkshire Dales when I was 18 and had just got my first car.  I came to rather like it. The mix of approachable mountains, refreshing rivers, and being gifted with a fair few excellent brewers.  Some of my regular walking companions have walked [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], and are quite interested in the alternative, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], promoted by Wharfedale brewery.  I tried a pint of Wharfedale Blonde in Kettlewell, very nice it is too.
