People who follow my blog will know that my wife has had a hell of a time of it after breaking her leg 20 months and the complications that has followed afterwards. We decided to have a day or so in the Northern dales. Mary is not up to walking very far at all these days and so we took our motor home away rather than me walking over the weekend as she is feeling a little better. So I swapped my 1 kg shelter for a 3500 kg one !
We didn’t really do very much, which is quite a nice change. We spent time just mooching about around Hawes in the shops, eateries and the second – hand book shop where I picked some cheap walking guides ready for our family holiday to Scotland to do walking and kayaking.
We stayed at a tiny site at Yore Farm House, about 400 metres from the Moorcock Inn near to Garsdale Station, basically in the middle of no-where. Set in beautiful countryside near Great Knoutberry with the Howgills a short walk away. If you are looking for a base which is quiet with an excellent pub with good food and ale for a few days walking in this area you couldn’t go far wrong with this site.
The site has 5 pitches with a clean toilet, water tap and disposal unit.
