Great Yorkshire walking
The valley of Littondale is strewn with some of the most beautiful walks in the Yorkshire Dales. Avid ramblers will be spoilt with its quietness, the incredible number of great footpaths, the traditional dry-stone walls, the odd limestone scar and some typical and unspoilt Yorkshire villages and hamlets with views of the whole dale.
As an owner, you’ll be on the doorstep of the quaint villages of Litton and Arncliffe which are linked by a quiet, riverside walk. You’ll follow the river Skirfare and pass the beautiful preserved woodland of Guildersbank, one of the largest Ash woodlands in the Dales.
For the more intrepid hikers, our holiday homes are in the perfect spot for tackling a tough 16-mile walk, taking you from Littondale and up the famous Pen-y-ghent, one of the Yorkshire Three Peaks. This walk will see you avoiding the honeypots and enjoying a peaceful exploration of one of Yorkshire’s gems.
The thriving village of Kettlewell – just at the north of the dale – might be more to your taste after a long stroll. The village is well stocked with pubs and is the perfect spot for exploring the challenging Great Whernside and the head of Wharfedale, Buckden Pike. It’s around an 8-mile walk from the village of Litton, or just 4 miles from the park, providing some of the most stunning views of the whole dale.
