Sleeping

The Yorkshire Dales is well endowed with glamping sites, hostels, B&Bs and hotels, but most have just a handful of beds and accommodation can get very scarce if the sun comes out, on public-holiday weekends and during festivals – book ahead if possible. There are accommodation listings on the national park website (www.yorkshiredales.org.uk).

Walkers and hikers are well catered for at bunkhouses and B&Bs, with most places providing bike washes/storage and a drying room for soggy kit.
