Cuisine and culture
If you want to eat outside of your Yorkshire Dales vacation rental, head to any local pub, where you're bound to find plenty of traditional hearty Yorkshire food – like Yorkshire puddings, by far the most well known element of Yorkshire cuisine, and usually served along with a Sunday roast.
One of the most famous cultural sights is Haworth, where, if you're a fan of the Brontë sisters, you can visit the place where they lived for most of their lives. Their house is open to visitors, as well as the church that holds the family vault. You can see how the landscape shaped their writings, and you can walk up to Top Withens, the supposed setting of Wuthering Heights. Afterwards, you can enjoy a cosy meal in one of the many country-style cafés and restaurants in Haworth.

and wheelchair-friendly gardens are as huge as they are spectacular, with a whole mixture of landscapes, from woodlands to flower gardens, and frequent special events, such as open-air theater and quiz trails. Inside the gardens, you can also visit the tearoom for some classic tea and scones.
Aysgarth Falls: Located in Wensleydale on the River Ure, the Aysgarth Falls are a series of stunning waterfalls. A short walk through the woods from the car park and visitors center brings you to the Upper Fall, the largest and most spectacular. The river drops down over huge slabs of rock in two more falls further downstream.
The Embsay railway in Skipton: From the original 1888 station in Skipton, you can ride the original old railway all the way to Bolton Abbey, watching the countryside pass by the window.
