Me, the mrs and the dog decided to go the Yorkshire Dales for a weekend hoping to get a bit of R&R. We have never been to the lakes or anything like this in England and are certainly not walkers. We stayed in Long Preston which was perfect, 2 pubs, 1 shop and situated between Skipton and Settle. The Maypole was exactly as I imagined - log fire, real ale, amazing home cooked food, friendly locals....a proper country pub. We had a change of scenery down at the Boars because it had Sky sports and dogs were also welcome.
Sunday morning we thought we had better do a spot of walking so had about a half an hour to go and do the Ingleton waterfall trail. It was perfect for us, a 2 hour walk and discovered some spectactular scenery. We had worked up a bit of an appetite so stopped off for a spot of lunch in Settle which was also lovely.
Everthing about the Maypole and the Dales lived upto our expectations. I have never been so relaxed in years and will definately be returning in the future to explore more of the Dales.
