When winter kicks in there can be a tendency to want to hibernate at home or in some cosy pub, but we think it’s a great time to get out into nature and experience what frosty landscapes has to offer. And, we aren’t the only ones who think so, one Yorkshire spot has been named of the most scenic winter walks by Country Living magazine.
Bolton Abbey is one of our favourite spots to visit any time of year with its amazing 2th-century Augustinian monastery, the babbling River Wharfe and the vast landscape to explore. And. it’s has been named 6th in Country Living’s spots to take a walk in this winter.
Writing about the beautiful tourist spot, they noted its location in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales most notably the two-mile route from Bolton Abbey Estate to Cavendish Pavilion. The route takes you over the river, over stepping stones and through the lush woodlands.
Cavendish Pavilion is the perfect spot for a warm drink to finish your walk. After a chilly walk, you’ll need something to warm you up and Country Living has named the wonderful Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa as a place for foodies, with its restaurant The Burlington to refuel afterwards.
The 17th-Century countryside spot is also the perfect place to stay.
The popular Peak District walk Higgor Tor and Carl Wark, The five-mile circular, which is a little more challenging than the Bolton Abbey stroll is five miles long. It featured second in their list with its gritstone rock formation overlooking Burbage Valley.
