Join Marty & Jason in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales at Kettlewell Hostel as spring bursts through the winter gloom.

Daffodils, Snowdrops, gambolling lambs and the twitter of returning birdlife in the beautiful hills, moors and valley`s of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The small stone village of Kettlewell sits astride the tumbling River Wharfe surrounded by rounded hills and moors overlooked by the "4th Peak of the Dales" Great Whernside. The Hostel is in the heart of the Village and includes the local Post Office! Now an independent family run operation at arms length from the YHA it has undergone an extensive internal refurbishment providing a bright modern interior and facilities and hands on personalised management.

The potential for activities from this base are extensive. A plethora of walks and paths to suit all abilities and challenges and we are promoting this event as a joint Walking and Cycling activity weekend with numerous Mountain Biking and Road Cycling routes close by (including the route used by the Tour de France in 2015). The hostel has a large secure Cycle Store.  Peter, our NW Cycling Co-ordinator is on board to organise these activities and there is a seperate Event page for Bikers to sign up.

  Jason will be walk leader supremo while muggins Marty works wonders in the kitchen to fill your bellies with good wholesome carbs & protein after a long hard but enjoyable Plodding & Pedalling across Wharfedale!

On the Sunday after cleaning up and packing there will be opportunity for more walking or biking or visiting the nearby bustling village of Grassington or maybe down to Skipton renowned for its Market, Castle, and large barge boat Marina on the Liverpool/Leeds Canal.

Please arrive no earlier than 5pm on Friday to allow us to get things organised and sorted ready to greet you! When you arrive, please report to the event leader before finding a bed as he may have important information to give you first.
