The Dalesway

Me and my Dad are planning on attempting the Dalesway in reverse this year (potentially April Covid allowing).


Has anybody got any accommodation recommendations.

I've not walked the Dalesway, but have walked Dales Highway, which also passes through Sedbergh.


I can recommend Holmecroft B&B on Station Road if they are still up and running. Nice and clean, friendly couple and reasonably priced. This was 2017.

I remember walking most of the Dalesway. I'd joined a Walking Forum meet at the YHA in Patterdale a few years ago (what year???) and after a weekend of hiking, drinking, eating and making merry I made my way to Windermere and started the walk. On the first day, I was struck by the lack of pubs en route and remember wild camping behind a bungalow hedge on the edge of a small field, no idea where I was. I really enjoyed the walk and at one point met an older chap who was a volunteer who walked a certain part of it to check all was well with the signposts and so on. We walked for a few miles together and even had a run-in with a really grumpy farmer who accused us of leaving a gate open, which we hadn't. We told him that we had reached this point from that direction 'over there' and not from the direction he was pointing at. He just swore a few times and angrily drove off on his small 4-wheeler!

I remember the walk as really worth doing. I didn't manage to finish it but for the life of me, I can't remember why?

The Station Hotel at Ribblehead have camping barns, with the added attraction of good food and beer  O0

I walked it in 2011, not sure whether they are still operating.
