At this time of year I like to make the most of any fine weather we get, we never know when autumn, and then winter, will set in and nice days are then few and far between, so when I saw the sun shining on Sunday we decided to head off to the Yorkshire Dales.
I've written many posts about our trips here. It's somewhere I was taken many times as a child and a place we've visited many times with our own children. It's my Happy Place.
The Yorkshire Dales National Park is in northern England and encompasses thousands of square miles of moors, valleys, hills and villages. The scenery is just stunning so I'm going to leave you with a few photos I took on the day.
We've had some more sunshine again this week so I'm hoping that autumn isn't here quite yet and that we're due a few more lovely days yet before summer is finally over.
We visited York a few years ago and drove out into the dales, we loved it. We are away and the weather is mixed, 1 cold wet day, 2 sunny and warm days the rest dull, still enjoying mid Wales.ReplyDelete
There's so many lovely places in the Yorkshire Dales, always something new to see. I hope you get some more good weather whilst you're away.Delete
Stunning photos of a beautiful part of our country. We've holidayed in Yorkshire many times and it really is so beautiful at any time of the year. Best, Jane xReplyDelete
Yorkshire is a beautiful county, we have it all here, coast, countryside and lovely towns and cities too, we're very lucky.Delete
Lovely pictures. I like this time of year, especially when the weather is as good as this. xxReplyDelete
I'm always sad as summer comes to an end but it is lovely when we get some good days into autumn.Delete

I agree, it's a beautiful part of the country and a good choice for a happy place!
It's somewhere I never tire of visiting, even though we visit often.Delete
I love the area around there. We had friends who lived in Clapham, they have moved now and we really miss visiting them. I can totally see why you call it your Happy Place it is a wonderful area. Thank you for sharing your lovely photos.ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful place to live, I hope you're friends have moved so somewhere equally lovely otherwise they'll really miss it.Delete
Absolutely gorgeous, I wish it wasn't so far away or so awkward to get to on the train.ReplyDelete
We're not exactly on the doorstep but we're not too far away so I can get a fix of my Happy Place fairly often.Delete
My goodness you took us on a beautiful tour, what a feast for the eyes.ReplyDelete
I just love all the scenery as we're touring around the different areas, it really is a feast for the eyes.Delete
It's absolutely gorgeous. I'm not surprised it's your happy place. I can almost smell the fresh Yorkshire air. XReplyDelete
We're so lucky so have so many beautiful places to visit in this country of ours.Delete
Your beautiful pictures evoke happy memories, Jo, and made me feel a little homesick. I hope the lovely weather continues a bit longer for you. P. xReplyDelete
There really is no mistaking the the Yorkshire Dales with all their beauty. The weather is holding up still at the moment with a good forecast for the coming week which is what I like to see.Delete
Another amazing adventure, so, so beautiful!ReplyDelete
We really enjoy our trips to the Yorkshire Dales. It doesn't matter how many times we visit, we still love it.Delete
My happy place too & I'm already missing it so much. Will try & do some catch up on blog reading & email replies. Still very out of it. Take care & have a good week.ReplyDelete
I don't think I could imagine myself living anywhere but Yorkshire, we do love our home county.Delete
