Description

We meet at the Golden Lion, Leyburn at 9 am. If you wish to stay at the Golden Lion the night before, you can book by calling 01969 622161. The Yorkshire Dales offer splendid views most never see and moderate lanes. You will travel routes such as West Cam, a narrow lane that hugs the side of a valley with a 600 ft drop just a few feet from where you will be driving. It will demand your full attention. It’s not all like this though, most of the lanes are a mix of rock and gravel, with some requiring you take a good line to prevent catching your underbody and differentials. There’s nothing to worry about because we will be guiding you every inch of the way where required.

At the end of the first day, we will travel over to the North Yorkshire Moors for an overnight stay. The Feversham Arms, Church Houses is a good place to stay. You can book by calling 01751 433206. The North Yorkshire Moors is the largest area of heather moorland in England and you will visit the highest moors and lowest valleys, where we will encounter river crossings, weather permitting. In the winter months,  the North Yorkshire Moors have an eerie mood and it’s possible you will drive through the clouds as we ascend to the famous Rudland Rigg via Monket Bank or Ingleby Bank and the views can be somewhat limited. In summer though, you can see for miles. From Danby Moor, you can often see over to Whitby and the east coast.

We usually stop each day at a local establishment for lunch, but it’s always good advice to carry snacks and drinks if the schedule is delayed.
