Our first site was Thornbrook Barn, a private site at Ingleton. We loved this site, there were only 29 pitches in a field on a sheep farm. The site was well laid out, a lovely toilet block and everywhere was spotlessly clean.

One of our walks was to visit Hardraw Force, the highest single drop waterfall in England, although the dry weather meant we didn't see it at its best, and also had a lovely walk across High Abbotside.

The first day we walked to Gordale Scar and Malham Cove. It was one of the hottest days to walk the longest of our walks - almost 20 miles. Unfortunately both the waterfall and beck at Gordale Scar were dry, but the scenery was spectacular.
We walked via Janets Foss and Malham to Malham Cove - an amazing landscape and a fabulous view after climbing the 432 steps to the top of the cove.

The following day after our long trek we had a short walk to Grassington and visited the Wensleydale Creamery - eating far too many cheese samples!
After five nights at Wharfedale we visited our final site, the Bolton Abbey Estate Caravan Club Site. This was a lovely site on the Bolton Abbey Estate, smaller than the last two and set amongst trees. The facilities were a little dated, but spotlessly clean.

Barden Moor was closed due to fire risk, so we were unable to do some of the walks we had planned and spent most of our time walking through the Bolton Abbey Estate.
The weather was still so hot it was lovely to walk through Strid Wood and along the river. There were also some spectacular view points including Barden Tower, as painted by Turner.

It's been a lovely holiday and definitely an area we will return to in a few year's time as there is so much more we want to see.
