The Yorkshire Dales National Park
The Yorkshire Dales National Park offers visitors opportunities for many outdoor pursuits including walking, climbing, horse riding, bird watching and caving. For archaeologists there are many fascinating discoveries to be made, as this area has been inhabited since Roman times. Naturalists will find the area rich in bird and wildlife, flora and fauna. The Yorkshire Dales is an area of beautiful scenery, interesting towns and villages and many historic attractions to visit.
Reeth lies where two of North Yorkshire's finest dales meet. The most northerly of these is Arkengarthdale, which is relatively unexplored and one of the more tranquil dales. The other, Swaledale, is formed from gentle slopes as the meandering Swale winds its way to Richmond. Reeth, at the juncture of these two dales, is at the heart of Swaledale.
Reeth is a popular place with visitors to the Dales, and has many tea rooms in which you can relax, perhaps after a stroll along the river, and interesting craft shops producing traditional, high quality products. It's 18th century houses and hotel clustered around the triangular village green make it one of the honey pots of the Dales. The traditional life of the village still flourishes, and can be enjoyed especially at the traditional events and markets that are held on the village green.
Richmond, Barnard Castle, Leyburn and Hawes are all within half an hours drive, and there is no shortage of eating houses in Reeth to enjoy after a long day's walking or sightseeing.
Visit the historic castles of Richmond (11 miles), Castle Bolton, Middleham and Jervaulx Abbey. Travel West over Tail Bridge to the market town of Kirkby Stephen, South over the Buttertubs pass to Hawes or North over The Stang to Barnard Castle.
Race-goers are well catered for at nearby Catterick, Thirsk, Ripon or York.
There are many mountain biking routes around Reeth, including the Dales Cycle way. Mountain bike hire is also available locally. Dales Mountain Biking also arrange accompanied inclusive tour packages or tailor-made programmes.
