Days in the Dales

All I can say is that if you haven't been then go soon. The Yorkshire Dales is a striking rural kingdom, sometimes beautiful, sometimes haunting, but always with a scale and character that overshadows much of what lies beneath it within other counties.

We were fortunate to stay at a friends cottage in Thoralby, North Yorkshire where Black Sheep ale and Wensleydale cheese are served. My fav dish was a a Black Sheep ale battered piece of Whitby Haddock served at The George and Dragon, Aysgarth.
