Taking its name from the village of Wensley, this beautiful dale is characterised by the market towns of Hawes, Leyburn and Masham, surrounded by lovely undulating countryside.
Explore the interesting market towns of Hawes, home to the Wensleydale Creamery (makers of Wallace & Gromit’s favourite cheese!), Leyburn, Masham (where you can take a tour of the Black Sheep) and Theakston’s Breweries to sample their award-winning real ales.
If you fancy some solitude on your cottage holiday in Wensleydale, head to the high fells for some excellent fell walking and stunning views, enjoy a pleasant stroll through the meadows, or a peaceful session fishing along the River Ure.
