Yorkshire

If you were to take some foreign visitor to 5 beautiful or interesting spots in Yorkshire, where would you take them ?
New Old Codger

Haworth, Ilkley, Roundhay Park, Whitelocks and Elland Road  

Seriously, good old pubs always do it, same with most Abbeys, and all of the Dales no doubt.  My geography's a bit poor - is Bolton abbey in Yorkshire, and Fountains Abbey?  Do any of the National Parks encroach on our land?  

Then there's Robin Hoods Bay and Whitby.

I think the Yorkshire Dales may be in Yorkshire Codge.

Butts

Whitby and the surrounding area (inc Robin Hood's Bay) but out of season.

If you ask Dock he may know of somewhere with a roaring fire, and if he doesn't I'm sure he can find you a gypsy camp in which to start one.

Hmm, and there's me thinking it isn't even though I mentioned 'the Dales'

We're thinking of taking a weekend break in the Yorkshire Dales at some point, but my knowledge of the area is somewhat sketchy. Any tips most welcome.

What we're after is a cottage or maybe a country inn somewhere quiet and picturesque but with easy access to a proper good country pub or two.

A roaring log fire would be a bonus.


Clacks try this place... you won't be disappointed.

Harts Head at Giggleswick

I've just had good news on the single malt front, all traces of gluten are eradicated during the distillation process!

RESULT!

Fountains Abbey

Round the wall at York and to the Minster but dont bother with the viking museum

You've just reminded me, Mr Bone.

I read some time ago in the local rag that the Timble Inn was due to open in November.

Have you heard otherwise?

It's open now, I've been informed that it  only has Theakstons on but may be getting Olicana brewery bitter.Also been told the food is good.
Robert Robinson

Malham Cove
Bolton Abbey
Knaresbrough
Keighley Worth Valley Railway (with buffet car)
Ripley Castle (for a gig)
Brinham Rocks
Mol

Simply cannot be beaten for food or lodgings. Quite superb, if, you can get a booking.

you're all making me homesick  
Mick McCann

Other than ones already mentioned.

You have to do the East Coast, Staithes or Robin Hoods Bay, Whitby will do but those smaller places are very atmospheric. You could do Whitby and a smaller one.

Appletreewick and surrounding area.

I like Halifax Piece Hall as well, again, it's got an atmosphere.

Stately home - Tempsey or Harewood House.

Also, this place comes highly recommended, although I haven't stopped there personally...

These foreign visitors? They might enjoy Eden Camp

Otley for a few beers. Whitby, fuck Scarboro and Brid right off, way to glamorous. Whitby's the real deal, full on Yorkie. Get fish and chips too. York. Walls, Shambles, Museums, Pubs. Malham Tarn, bit of marching around the country, take in the air then repair to a pub for a big feed and few pints. Bit of a sly one, Howarth, Cathy, Heathcliff, then nip into Bradford for a curry. And a few pints.

I can highly recommend the Old Station Fisheries in Addingham, followed by a pint of Landlord at The Fleece in Addingham which is usually very well kept. Perhaps a bite to eat there too. Then to The Swan in Addingham, which may be dead but usually has an excellent selection of guest ales on. I would avoid the other pubs mind, I've heard the Heifer is ok but haven't been in in years. The others are rubbish.

That's if Addingham is your bag.

Is Dave still running it? Has he completely fried his brains on Strongbow? Good chippy that one. More a Frying Machine man myself - an undiscovered gem in my opinion but The Skyliner was a good spot. How much are fish and chips these days?

I can't remember the names but it's a father son combo and the father has now passed it on to the son.

Stayed in the place across the road one Xmas, but this pub looked much better. Very homely, roaring log fire, bags of atmos. Great time of year to visit too.

Called in there on Saturday to see some friends, they were staying in Grassington, they had Tetleys and Black Sheep on the bar and they said the food was excellent.

Dave and Alvin, if it's the eldest lad. Be happy this weekend, big Leeds RL fans.

I did notice a couple of signed rugby balls behind the counter so guess they're still there.
