Start the day with a relaxing drive into the  Yorkshire Dales, where you will enjoy the stunning scenery in Swaledale. Refreshments can be enjoyed in a traditional tearoom in a quaint Dales village such a Reeth. Our morning continues to take us through Swaledale, considered by many as the most scenic of the dales which leads off the beaten path up and over the winding dales passes leading into Hawes and the famous Wensleydale Creamery. There will be plenty of time to visit the creamery, watch and learn how the cheese is produced and sample the many varieties in the tasting room. After lunch you can enjoy more delightful scenery and we head through Wensleydale, enjoying views of historic landmarks including, Aysgarth Waterfalls, Bolton and Middleham Castles and Jerrvaulx Abbey before we arrive in Masham ( pronounced "Massam" ).

Our day starts with a relaxing drive through the surrounding Plains of York the flat gentle farming country surrounding the city, from here you can spot both of Yorkshires National Parks as we drive up the Vale of York that separates them. As we enter the outskirts of the Yorkshire Dales, you can sit back and enjoy the stunning scenery as the hill rise gentle around us.

Making our way into Swaledale we stop for refreshment and a stretch of the legs in Reeth, where a hot beverage can be enjoyed in a traditional tearoom. Our morning continues to take us through Swaledale, considered by many as the most scenic of the dales stopping for photos of  the patchwork effect of the drystone walls along the meadow and pasture.

Our route then leads us off the beaten path up and over the winding dales passes where the views stretch for miles eventually leading into Hawes and the famous Wensleydale Creamery. Hawes is a bustling little town with a fine choice of traditional pubs tea rooms and cafes to find lunch. We particularly like the White Hart Inn and the Hot Wensleydale Cheese and bacon sandwich, simply delicious. There will be plenty of time to visit the creamery, watch and learn how the cheese is produced and sample the many varieties in the tasting room(extra cost £3.95pp) .
