Things To Do in Sedbusk
You have direct access to the awe-inspiring dales, which offer a wide range of walking, hiking and cycle trails – many of these are great to take your dog along with you.
From the market town of Hawes there is a circular walk, which takes in the three waterfalls the area is renowned for – the Hardraw, Cotter and Aysgill forces. This 10-mile route begins in Hawes town centre, crosses the River Ure, taking in Bluebell Hill before reaching the heady height of 100ft, giving unsurpassed views of the dales.
The Hardraw Force at 80ft is England’s highest single drop waterfall, which can be accessed by a footpath just behind the Green Dragon Inn in Hardraw – a ideal pit-stop for both you and your four-legged family member. Waterfalls and rivers aside, this unique hike takes in the Appersett Viaduct and Semer Water, North Yorkshire’s second largest natural lake.
One natural sight that doesn’t require a hike is Buttertubs Pass, a stretch of dramatic winding road between the nearby hamlet of Simonstone and the villages of Thwaite and Muker. Buttertubs Pass gets its name from a series of 20-metre-deep potholes beside the road. Back in the day farmers lowered their butter into these cool hollows when they rested on the way to market day in Hawes. Views from the pass are sensational.
Hawes, which is well within walking distance from Lilac Cottage, is the county’s highest market town. Tuesday is market day in this charming town, so it is well worth making time for this. Take your dog on a leash, as it can be quite lively.
Wensleydale Creamery makes the famous cheese, the origins of which go back to medieval times. At the visitor centre can see the cheese makers in action and in the shop there’s free tasting of more than 20 varieties.
Visit Outhwaite Ropermakers to see how these skilled craftsmen make bannister and barrier ropes. Here, you can buy your dog a lead or halter made on the premises by this world-renowned ropemaker.
If you like to keep off the beaten track, need a warm welcome for your pooch, have an outstanding view greeting you when you wake up and an historic market town within walking distance, then Lilac Cottage should be on your list of must-travel-to destinations this year.
It is a fantastic destination for the whole family to enjoy in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.
