These boots are made for walking.

Have just returned from a lovely week in the Yorkshire Dales.

Here we are at Aysgarth Falls:

(Should bring back memories for daughter's godfather!)

As you can just about see, the pink walking boots were well used. We did lots of walking (Crackpots Mosaic Trail was a hit, she even managed all 7 miles of it!), visited the lovely city of Ripon, had a tour of the Black Sheep Brewery and of course, went to the Wenslydale Cheese Museum.

We finished off our week with a trip to Brimham Rocks - just how beautiful is the Yorkshire Dales:

Have to say big thank you to Tim, from Bringing up Charlie, for letting me know about the cottage in Nidderdale - it was just the job.

What a marvellous view! I am so looking forward to exploring more of this beautiful country if and when I ever retire!

Beer and cheese in one holiday - life doesn't get any better. And the walking looks great as well!

It looks lovely - have been thinking about taking my sons walking but am nervous about the distances. Where was your cottage - that sounds the perfect compromise - a nice base with choice of walking routes?

I was up that way on my holiday too and it was truly beautiful! Glad you had a great time.

Hi Denise - yes, the walking was very suitable for children. The Dales are not too hilly and there are masses of footpaths to make your own walks or there are guides available from Tourist Information for set walks such as the Crackpot's Mosaic Trail and the Masham Leaves Walk (sculpture trail). We did about 3 to 5 miles with six year old daughter which was about right. Also there is a good mix of woodland, fields, rivers and moors to keep children interested. Hope that helps!
