CHRISTMAS PUB WALKS IN THE YORKSHIRE DALES
With Mark Reid FRGS – author of ‘The Inn Way’ guidebooks & Mountain Leader
NB: we are currently unable to provide any outdoor clothing or kit.
This December why not enjoy a morning’s winter walk exploring the beautiful Yorkshire Dales with Mark Reid as your walking guide, and then return to a lovely country pub for a 2-course Christmas lunch?
Mark has exceptional local knowledge, and will share the history, heritage and geography with you whilst on the walk, with a mid-morning hot mulled punch and mince pies break on the hillside!
Our Christmas Pub Walks are leisurely, sociable, enjoyable and fun, topped off with Christmas lunch in a great country pub!
OUR 2020 CHRISTMAS WALK WILL BE BASED FROM…
Kings Arms, Askrigg, Wensleydale, Yorkshire Dales
The Kings Arms is an historic coaching inn in the heart of this beautiful village, with high ceilings adorned with saddle-hooks, a huge inglenook fireplace and a cosy atmosphere that makes this the perfect winter pub. The pub was famously featured as the Drovers Arms in the TV series ‘All Creatures Great and Small’. Please note: the Kings Arms does not offer accommodation, but there are several excellent B&Bs in the village.
