Enjoy the Yorkshire Dales whatever the weather!
Stay at our Yorkshire Dales hotel and enjoy your holiday -whatever the weather!
It’s impossible to tell what the weather is going to do at the moment: one minute we’re basking in warm sunshine and the next it’s pouring with rain! Although we hate to admit it, unfortunately the sun doesn’t always shine in the Yorkshire Dales but thanks to our fantastic location on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, there’s always something to do, no matter how wet it is outside!
Wet weather activities in the Yorkshire Dales
Whether you like nothing better than enjoying a relaxing canal boat trip , the latest cinema release or exploring a castle or museum, Skipton and surrounding areas has something for everyone. Skipton town centre is within easy reach of the Rendezvous Hotel which is located next to the pretty Skipton canal. Alongside Skipton’s bustling high street, packed with interesting shops and cafes, is Skipton Castle. One of the most complete medieval castles in England, a visit to Skipton Castle makes an interesting and enjoyable to spend a wet afternoon. With lots of rooms to explore, plus a well-stocked gift shop and café, Skipton Castle is pretty hard to miss, thanks to its location at the top of Skipton High Street.
If you fancy exploring a little further afield, Hesketh Farm Park at Bolton Abbey and Thornton Farm Park at Thornton-in-Craven, make wonderful days out the whole family will enjoy. Whether you’re 9 or 99, there’s nothing quite like a trip to the farm and visit to one of our local farm parks is a must for families.
Lovers of history will enjoy East Riddlesden Hall in nearby Keighley, whilst the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Howarth is a fascinating place to visit for anyone interested in the writings of the famous Bronte Sisters. Steam train enthusiasts will absolutely love Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway and the Keighley and Worth Valley Steam Railway.
A great place to stay – no matter what the weather’s like!
