Yorkshire is home to two National Park’s the Moors and the Dale’s. Located over the Pennine Hills bordered by the A65 to the West and the A1(M) to the East the A66 to the North and the quaint town of Skipton to the south this vast land is a walker’s paradise.
Why not hire a 6 berth motorhome from Easicampers at our depot based in Manchester located near the airport and just a short drive from the M60 motorway which you will take and follow towards the M66 towards Burnley where you will stop off overnight before you start your journey around the Dales.
Our Easicampers base in Manchester is located approximately an hour’s drive from Burnley once you get to your camp site (pre booking is always best) its then time for a brew and time to decide which way to go on your journey.
You could go either way around then end up back at Skipton after a 5 day hire before making you way close to our Manchester depot and handing the motorhome back to our dedicated staff.
Our route will head west from Skipton towards Malham. A very popular place with walkers and climbers. Visit the famous Malham Tarn owned by the National Trust this is the highest Marl Lake in the UK. It is one of only 8 upland Alkaline lakes in Europe.After a couple of miles walk it’s time to get changed out of your walking gear and after taking a break for some lunch and to rest your weary legs its time to move on to Ingleton.
Park up for the night in your motorhome there are a couple of campsite’s located here you could choose from Meadow Falls or Moorgarth Farm campsite, these are ideally located to walk to the falls follow the links below but book in advance and check for what is on site

For the more experienced walker you could set off from Ingleton and take a 6.5 mile walk to the Ribblehead Viaduct. This is one of the most photographed viaduct’s in the UK so make sure you have a decent camera. You can drive to here but if you’re here for a walking holiday why not take in the views at a leisurely pace.
After another night at your chosen campsite its time to head in to the deepest dales and to the picturesque market town of Hawes which is at the head of the parish of Wensleydale famous for its cheese. You can visit the Wensleydale creamery and sample the delights and take some home for family or friends.
There are a couple of campsites in and around the town so take your pick and enjoy the local cuisine or take a walk around the River Ure.
After a peaceful night’s sleep in the motorhome its time to head east to the delightful cathedral city of Ripon located in the borough of Harrogate (another fantastic tourist attraction). Famous for its wool and cloth production in the 18th century it is also famous for its Cathedral. Whilst you are visiting the lovely town to take in the history make sure you visit the local bakery Thomas the Baker and try one of their sticky buns.(Mmmm)
Just a 10 minute drive from Ripon is Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden, another Yorkshire Gem owned by the National Trust this ruin of a Monasterie was once one of the wealthiest in the UK until Henry VIII in 1539 ordered the dissolution of the monastery. It is one of the National Trust’s more popular attractions and the water gardens are a fantastic place to just sit and watch the world go by.
