Activities

The villages of Littondale and the surrounding Yorkshire Dales have plenty of activities, both strenuous and relaxing, for guests of all ages.

Whether you want to walk the dales, mountain bike over the moors, cook a meal using local produce or enjoy a relaxing sunday lunch in a local village pub, High Rylands is the place to stay.

Places of interest

High Rylands also provides a good base for touring by car. The village of Grassington, with its cobbled square, is a short drive, and the ancient town of Skipton with its markets and castle, is less than 30 minutes away. Other places of interest within easy reach include Aysgarth, famous for its spectacular falls, Hawes with its creamery, ropemaker, pottery and Dales museum, Haworth and its surrounding ‘Bronte Country’, Settle and the spectacular caverns at White Scar Caves and Stump Cross Caverns. Historical sites include Middleham, Bolton and Richmond castles, Rievaulx, Fountains and Bolton Abbeys. Even the cities of York with its medieval walls, Minster and museums, Leeds new home to the Royal Armouries, or Bradford with the Museum of Photography and Salts Mill Gallery, are an easy day trip.
