    We spent several days at Lower Wensleydale and Wharfedale last autumn.

    From the CC site at Lower Wensleydale it's about a 20 minute walk into Leyburn, a nice little town. It's possible to walk from Wharfedale into Grassington, but we took the bus from the stop at the end of the road as it was too squidgy underfoot at the time we went:BigGrin:
    It's only just over 5 minutes on the bus into Grassington.

    We can thoroughly recommend the Gamekeeper's Inn, which is within the Long Ashes complex, barely 5 minutes walk from the Wharfedale CC site.
    The do meals every night and the bar is "dog friendly" as well:thumb:

    Yes, the Dales are nice too:Doh::Rofl1:

    We are off to Sutton Bank for a few days at the weekend - can't really help with sites as we stay at the gliding club, but the steam railway from Pickering is always worth a trip, taking you up on t'moors the easy way and stopping at Goathland where they flim Heartbeat.

    I'm sure there'll be sites nearby:thumb:

    NY moors

    Hi,

    A few years ago we dropped on a terrific privately run site just a few hundred yards out of Hutton Le Hole, on the Pickering side (south) of that lovely village. It is called Westfield Lodge and is run by Annabel Strickland and her husband. We have stayed at seval sites around the moors, including Low Moor and Spiers House and Rosedale, but always go back to Annabel's.

    Sutton Bank was where I did my first flight
    heck: Too long ago to remember, love to see it again but Gliding now is (or appears to be ) very expensive,:BigGrin:

    Thanks all or the replies,

    I asked about the moors as we were planning to continue down the East side on our way back. The dales would be an option on the way up though:thumb:

    Thanks for the pm John

    If you venture inland from whitby on the A169 there is a camp site behind Heartbeats 'Aidensfield arms' (Goathland hotel) at Goathland....right on the moors.
