Stay at Howgill Lodge Caravan and Camping Park and visit the Yorkshire Dales on your camping and caravan holidays. This campsite is popular with walkers, with many great routes passing close to the site, although tourists often head out across the Dales themselves and find their own way. Many of the passes of the Yorkshire Dales can be accessed on bicycle, while there are many stations across the National Park from which horse riding can be enjoyed. Mountain biking is also popular here, with some fine adventurous trails ready to tempt and test enthusiasts.
Other high octane pursuits you can try in the Dales include fell running, caving, climbing, geocaching, paragliding, hang gliding, canoeing, sailing and windsurfing. Or relax with a spot of fishing.
The Yorkshire Dales is also rich in locations celebrating its history and heritage, with museums, farms and much more to see. The steam railway is a fun and evocative way to experience a lot of the Dales in one go!
There are also many castles you can visit when you tour the Dales. There's Richmond Castle, Middleham Castle, Bolton Castle and Skipton Castle. Or how about Fountains Abbey or Newby Hall, both of which are near Ripon.
The nearest town is Skipton, a popular market town that attracts tourists from across North Yorkshire and beyond. There are some great shops and family friendly pubs in town, while guests looking to explore further can be in Leeds in half an hour if they take the train from Skipton. A drive through the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which itself covers over 200 square miles of inspiring countryside, will take you to Harrogate and Ripon, two other popular Yorkshire towns. You are also only an 80-minute drive from historic York, a magnificent city with lots of things for all the family to enjoy.
