What to do in October

As the season turns, the Yorkshire Dales becomes an artist’s delight, clothed in gorgeous Autumn tints. A walk though the woods is a must as the leaves begin to fall or a stroll beside a river with the golden bracken on the hillside reflected in its surface. Malham Tarn has it all and there is a lovely family bike route all round it so you can enjoy it from all angles.

After a day out in all that crisp autumn air then an evening in a local pub in front of a roaring log fire is perfect. Most offer wonderful hearty food along with locally brewed ales.
