What shall we do? Walks

There is no shortage of great walks in Yorkshire and I am sure you will have your own favourites but if you need a bit of inspiration read on. If you have mini hikers in tow you may like to check out these great packs where the kids lead the walks.


Making Tracks walking pack

Check out my blog post for details of the pack.

Falling Foss

A favourite walk of ours with a lovely cafe at its destination is Falling Foss. The walk takes you through fields and woodland before you arrive back at the idyllic Falling Foss Tearooms, situated in the grounds of Midge Hall, actually a small cottage, above the spectacular Falling Foss waterfall. You can have your tea, coffee and cake al fresco or under canvas while the kids clamber across logs in the stream. Heavenly stuff.

Dalby Forest

Dalby Forest, south of the North York Moors National Park, is a beautiful, unspoilt area of forest and valleys where you can spend time following the cycle trails – there’s one to suit every ability, walk to the Bridestones, or where the kids can paddle in the stream at the adventure playground.


Check out my blog post on a walk to the Bridestones at Dalby Forest – fabulous views and a walk the kids will love.
