You are invited to beautiful Wensleydale for a walking break in the Yorkshire Dales over Easter. Spend four nights at our luxurious guest house, Eastfield Lodge, which is 300 yards from the traditional market square of Leyburn, the principal town of Wensleydale and gateway to the Dales National Park. Read on…
Each day after a good breakfast, we will venture out on a beautiful walk. Over the three days we will walk in Wensleydale, Swaledale and Wharfedale. After each walk there is time to relax in the hospitable atmosphere and comfort of Eastfield Lodge, where we have 8 delightful en suite bedrooms, a cosy guest lounge and an attractive dining room.
