Trail News

  • The Palmer Flatt Hotel is now known as the Aysgarth Falls Hotel
  • The Buck Inn at Buckden recently closed (January 2017) - the George at Hubberholme or the White Lion at Cray offer inn accommodation nearby.
  • The Queens Arms at Litton has a new 'phone number: 01756 770096
  • There are campsites at: Buckden (Heber Farm), Askrigg, Reeth (Orchard Campsite), Aysgarth Falls (hotel) and Kettlewell (Conistone road), so it's now possible to back-pack this route.
  • Stage Five (West Burton to Kettlewell) - Fleensop Moor. A shooters' track has been installed across Fleensop Moor. The section in question relates to the track (bridleway) that leaves the road near Whiterow Farm (Walden valley) and heads up onto Fleensop Moor. After the gate in the wall above the old railway carriage (SE 018 831), follow the track straight on for 125 yards then, where the track bends sharp right, carry straight on along a rough grassy path (in a SE direction) for 0.3 miles across White Hill to reach another gate in a wall (SE 021 826). Ignore the clear track that now bends sharp right 125 yards after the gate above the railway carriage. A new signpost has been installed that points you in the right direction. Always carry OS maps with you.
  • Long Stay parking is limited at Grassington, so please use public transport. If you arrive by car, then enquire at the Yorkshire Dales National Park Information Centre at Grassington about where to park your car - week-long car parking tickets are available for the National Park car park at Grassington. Also, hotels, B&Bs etc usually allow you to leave your car with them (if you stay with them at the start and end of your walk) – always 'phone to check.
  • There is only one cash-point along the entire route. This is at Grassington at the start of the walk (Barclay's Bank).
  • If you are relying on a pub for lunchtime food, then always 'phone in advance to check opening times. Many rural pubs close at lunchtimes early in the week.
  • All Overnight Stops have a village shop. There are Outdoor Shops at Grassington, Reeth and Kettlewell.
  • All open pubs along the route have an 'Inn Way Pub Sign' attached near to their front doors.
  • The 'dilapidated' stone barn just as you reach Arncliffe has been converted into a house.
