Spring has finally sprung, and so has its official marker of arrival: the daffodil. A bright yellow beacon of hope, the flower has long taken on the job of letting us know that the new season is here, providing a subtle sense of joy while it’s at it. And if there’s one thing we’re in dire need of after a long cold winter, it’s a hefty dose of joy. That’s where I introduce Daffodil Valley, which can be found in lovely Farndale.
A place that can only be described as a pocket of serotonin nestled within the stunning North York Moors, Farndale – or Daffodil Valley as its known – finds itself completely carpeted with happy-hued daffodils every single spring, providing an unbeatable landscape that can’t be found anywhere else.
The scenery is so spectacular in fact, that it’s become a famous walking route, with sights of yellow blooms at every turn. Running alongside the peaceful River Dove, the route spans over 3 miles, making for a wholesome Sunday stroll in the iconic Yorkshire valley.
Peaking throughout March and April, there isn’t much time to enjoy the serene spots wild beauty, however, there’s a sense of beauty to the valley all year round – particularly when sprinkled with snow.
In true Yorkshireman style, we have to let you know that there is a pub en-route, so once you’ve taken in the surrounds, you can sink a pint in the Feversham Arms at Church Houses, before planning your next Yorkshire adventure.
