A 76 mile Yorkshire Dales Walking Route over seven days

Staying in country hotels and pubs with character offering local hospitality, hearty breakfasts, excellent evening meals and visiting 26 classic Dales pubs

Enjoy glorious but challenging routes some in open country but also passing through quaint Yorkshire hamlets and villages on the way

The Ales in the Dales walk covers much in the Dales National Park

The first Inn Way was designed in 1997 but Penny first completed this route in July 2019.  She has therefore been able to re-route some of the walk to allow for changes and add that special Colletts feel to the new ‘Yorkshire Ales in the Dales’, which will be guided throughout and provide a particularly good level of accommodation and food. Yorkshire boasts excellent local produce and fine dining so you can enjoy this on the way knowing it has been truly earned.

You are invited to join this new week-long break thoroughly exploring the more remote corners of the Yorkshire Dales whilst also enjoying the local ales and hospitality. Each day will start with a hearty breakfast before setting off on varied, stunning and sometimes challenging terrain. The walks cover between 11 – 15.5 miles and visit between 2 – 5 pubs each day. (It is not compulsory to consume a beverage in every inn!) A support vehicle will be on hand, not only to transport our luggage to the next accommodation but to assist us should a day prove too lengthy for some.

Lunches are not included but a snack or meal can be ordered in advance to prevent delays and consumed at whichever inn we visit at around midday. It will be a welcome sight to see the final hotel or pub come into view knowing that the accommodation selected will be comfortable, sometimes luxurious and all providing delicious, wholesome and local dishes, some with fine dining or even a fresh catch from the river, by arrangement. Despite all the miles covered, you should probably not expect to waste away!

For those who wish to learn more about the Yorkshire wildlife, flora, birds, area and even ales, Penny will endeavour to offer information and knowledge as you walk. It is also possible to have a checklist to tick off the pubs as you go in order to clearly see progress. A recommended kit list is available if requested as suitable wet weather and warm layers will be advised with the hopes that they will not be required. 

The Ales in the Dales costs are as follows: £975 per person to include: all B&B accommodation & 4 2 or 3 course meals, all transportation & support & 6 days guiding. A deposit of £150 per person is required.

During the week, lunches are not included but a snack or meal at the midday pubs on route are all available and orders can be phoned through to avoid delays. The evening meals that are included in the price are for meals only and not for any drinks which will be settled individually.

I have a logbook for those of you who wish to keep tabs on your progress each day and enables you to stamp your book on route at each of the pubs as we go.

As you can see from the pictures, sections of the walk are off the beaten track, remote, stunning, varied and rewarding, including areas difficult for many visitors to find. There are inevitably some sections on the road, which I normally dislike but over this distance I found them a welcome relief! We have Sam and the rescue vehicle with us so therefore always providing options especially on the longer days. It won’t be as popular however to simply get a lift to the top of each hill and then start again!!

(Luggage transported to the next destination each day).
