We venture down into Wensleydale and Hardraw before descending into Swaledale through the valley heading on to the historic Bolton Castle for lunch. 

The 14th century castle was famously home to the imprisoned Mary, Queen of Scots, here you'll be able to enjoy a lunch stop and a wonder around the charming castle gardens. We continue our journey up the valley to the spectacular Aysgarth Waterfalls, which is famous for an appearance in the film Robin Hood Prince of thieves.

From here we make our way to Hawes for a stop at the creamery where you can sample the delicous cheese. Then we continue into the lovely village of Dent, famous for the Dent knitters and brewery. We complete our journey back to Windermere via Kirkby Lonsdale.
