Yorkshire Dales hotel

Treat yourself to a Bank Holiday break at the Rendezvous Hotel

Hotel breaks in Yorkshire

Not long to go now until May and two lovely long Bank Holiday weekends to look forward to and enjoy! What better way to enjoy that extra day off work than a long weekend in the Yorkshire Dales?

Here at the Rendezvous Hotel we’re incredibly proud of our fantastic location on the outskirts of the pretty market town of Skipton and within easy reach of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park. There’s so much to do in this part of the world it’s hard to know where to start so we thought we’d give you a few ideas of things to do on a long weekend in Skipton and the Dales.

Exploring the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park

There’s no doubt that the Yorkshire Dales is best known for its stunning scenery. The landscape in this part of the world has something for everyone and whether you like nothing better than strolling through lush green farmland criss-crossed by limestone walls or striding across wild open moorland, the Dales is certainly diverse. Walking is possibly the most popular activity amongst visitors to the Dales and with hundreds of miles of beautiful walking routes on offer, there’s something to suit all ages, abilities and levels of walking experience.

Cycling is also proving to be incredibly popular with visitors to the Dales – especially since the success of the Tour de France Grand Depart in 2014 – with waymarked cycling trails for mountain bikers and many hundreds of miles of challenging road cycling routes.

If history is more your thing you’ll find that the Dales offers a wealth of castles, stately homes and historical sights. Skipton itself boasts one of the most intact medieval castles in England whilst Bolton Abbey and Fountains Abbey can be easily reached by car or public transport.
