Walking The Dales Way 7 Days

Welcome! You are in the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park experiencing one of the most spectacular English highland landscapes. The Dales is steepled in tradition, excellent views, and some relatively untouched countryside. Enjoy the gentle undulating hills, limestone dales, ancient woodland, and waterfalls. The Dales are also home to several interesting, and undisputibly beautiful towns, villages and hamlets. 

Gently meandering through the dales is a 78 mile route, which starts at Ilkley, and finishes in the Lake District National Park, on the shores of Lake Windermere. 

To help you enjoy this wonderful route, we have put together this Dales Way 7 day itinerary for you to self-book your walking holiday. Click any of the overnight stops below to quickly scroll down to that section on the page. 

The accommodation on this page have been hand picked, and checked on Facebook, TripAdvisor, and via Google Reviews to ensure they are of an acceptable quality. Most can be booked direct, online either via booking.com, or through their own website. We have also added some super handy distances from the trail so you know how far you have to travel each day to start walking.
