Why you should do this walk…

A 5 mile circular walk from the village of Grassington in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire. If you’re after a fairly level Dales walk by a river, through fields and meadows, with beautiful views and also the opportunity to stop off at dog-friendly places then this could be the walk for you.

Dog friendly?…

The terrain is a medium difficulty, mostly grassy paths and lanes with gentle to moderate gradients. Some sections of the route can be very muddy after periods of rain and in winter. You will be crossing many grass pastures that are likely to contain a mixture of sheep and cattle. There is a small amount of road walking in Hebden. You will need to negotiate some steps and gates and there are several stiles along the route in the form of gaps within the dry-stone wall. Most of these should be suitable for agile dogs to negotiate, but there are a couple where dogs may need a hand. There are public toilets in the car park at the start of the walk.

    We did this walk at the beginning of May and thoroughly enjoyed it, it was too cold for Daisy to have a paddle but we’re hoping to return in the summer to give it another try!
    p.s theres a fab dog friendly pub in Appletreewick Village (about 15mins drive from Grassington) called the Craven Arms that serves delicious meals and really good ales, well worth a visit after a long hike!

      Yes it was cold when we did it too! We’re going back to the area again when the weather is a bit milder. Had heard good things about the Craven Arms and think we’d better try it now you’ve recommended it. Thanks. 🙂

    Brilliant walk! We did this with our six year old daughter and our 2 year old lab. Both managed the walk with ease, even when Chester launched himself into quite a deep river! The Clarendon hotel was lovely and welcoming with a great steak and kidney pie. The last part of the walk was very muddy but equally hilarious. Great fun and so pleased I found this website. Thank you! Will be trying another walk.

    Did this last September- highly recommended- lovely pubs on route. Scenery and swimming opportunities fantastic- just be wary of sheep.

    This is a beutiful walk but most definatly not dog friendly.My labrador is very active but he struggled with all the stiles on this route, even though it lists as no stilles.

    There’s now a fantastic tea shop in Hebden, which welcomes dogs.
