It’s National Picnic Month!

National Picnic Month 2019 – pick a perfect picnic spot in the Yorkshire Dales

National Picnic Month is held each July with the aim of highlighting the joys of eating outdoors! We know we’re biased, but here at the Rendezvous Hotel we think that the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park boasts some of the loveliest picnic spots in the UK; so why not book a short break with us and make the most of outdoor dining?

Our Yorkshire Dales Hotel

The Rendezvous Hotel is located in the picturesque market town of Skipton, widely known at the ‘Gateway to the Dales’. Just a short bus journey or drive to the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, Skipton is the perfect base from which to explore all that this lovely part of the world has to offer.

When it comes to gorgeous picnic spots in the Yorkshire Dales, the choice is huge! From stunning Malham Cove and Goredale Scar, through to Bolton Abbey, Janet’s Foss and Linton Falls, the possibilities are endless. A little further afield but equally as beautiful, Fountain’s Abbey, Brimham Rocks and the Nidderdale countryside are also lovely places to picnic.

When it comes to the perfect picnic the food is, of course, equally as important as the location! Skipton town centre has a wide of well-stocked independent shops including bakeries and delis. Ideal for stocking up on delicious picnic treats, Skipton High Street has everything you could possibly need for a memorable outdoor dining experience. In addition, you’ll also find lots of pretty villages to explore whilst you’re out and about, many of which have excellent shops, farm shops and markets.
