Northern England region

The countryside in Yorkshire's Dales will be familiar to many as the setting for Calendar Girls. Scenic lanes, popular with cyclists, wind up hill and down dale, alongside dry stone walls, past grazing cattle and sheep. The choice of walks is seemingly endless, with way-marked national trails including the Pennine and Dales Ways, the circular challenge of the Three Peaks, gentle strolls along valleys and hill-walking for the seasoned hiker. The rich and varied scenery includes rolling hills, tumbling cascades and lush wild-flower meadows. The more adventurous will enjoy steep climbs and rocky scrambles, dramatic scars and heather-topped moorland. Cobbled market towns attract visitors with independent shops and artisan and craft outlets; nearby Skipton was included in the Sunday Times 2013 Top 10 high streets. There are regular farmers' markets, antiques fairs, and numerous festivals including Grassington's two-week summer cultural and music festival. Yorkshire folk enjoy their food and are proud of their pies, Wensleydale cheese and their micro-breweries; and most village pubs serve hearty fare. Children of all ages will enjoy activities ranging from stepping stones across rivers and exploring caverns, to ice-cream farms and interactive museums. The region will showcase its charms when it stages the Grand Depart of the Tour de France in 2014.

Kirkby Malham

Airton is situated in Malhamdale, just 3 miles from Malham's spectacular cove and tranquil tarn. Rocky steps take you to the limestone pavement from which you can enjoy stunning views across the dale. The beautiful pool and tumbling waterfall at Janet's Foss are a gentle and picturesque contrast to the force of nature that is Gordale Scar. Not for the faint-hearted, the footpath here ascends the scar via the waterfall before continuing to the birdwatcher's paradise at Malham Tarn. Caverns can be explored at Ingleborough and Pateley Bridge. Pony trekking and hacking are available at nearby Kilnsey. Children will be enchanted at Wensleydale's Forbidden Corner and teenagers can Go Ape on the high ropes at Dalby Forest. Other attractions nearby include a falconry centre, medieval castles at Bolton Abbey and Skipton, narrow boat trips along the Leeds-Liverpool canal and steam train journeys from Embsay and Settle. Museums in the area give insights into such diverse histories as artillery, film and television, medicine and rail travel. When exhausted by the many activities on offer, visitors can spoil themselves at Betty's famous tearooms in Harrogate before recuperating in the Turkish baths.

"Malhamdale idyll"

The website pictures do not do justice to this beautiful apartment. It is an upside down property, living mainly upstairs, if entered from the car park, with bedrooms downstairs but on ground level… More
