The Dales Way 7 days, 8 night Itinerary

The Dales Way is a 80 mile (130 km) long-distance route in the North of England. The route stretches from Ilkley, Wesy Yorkshire to Bowness-on-WIndermere, Cumbria.

Initially the walk was devised by the Wes Riding Ramblers Association and announced to the public in 1968.

The route passes through two National Parks:

The Yorkshire Dales National Park, and the Lake District National Park.

The first section of the route follows the River Wharfe upstream to Ribblehead. Following this, the route journeys through several river valleys, before finishing in Windermere.

Accommodation options can be a little sparse at some sections, which I’ll do my best to address in the itinerary below:

Travel to Ilkley to your first night’s accommodation

Day 1: Walk from Ilkley to Burnsall – 13 miles / 20.5km

The Devonshire Fell Hotel

Our accommodation recommendation is the Devonshire Fell Hotel. This well located 4 star hotel makes for an exceptionally comfortable night stay. Ideal for those walkers who enjoy a bit of luxury above and beyond what a farmhouse style B&B can sometimes offer.

The accommodation describes itself as “boutique hideaway set in the stunning Yorkshire Dales that blends its countryside setting with contemporary comfort”. Walkers are of course welcome

With rooms from £120, the price is reasonable given the overall quality of the accommodation.


Day 2: Walk from Burnsall to Kettlewell – 9 miles / 14.5km

The King’s Head Inn

Our accommodation recommendation is the Devonshire Fell Hotel. This well located 4 star hotel makes for an exceptionally comfortable night stay. Ideal for those walkers who enjoy a bit of luxury above and beyond what a farmhouse style B&B can sometimes offer.

The accommodation describes itself as “boutique hideaway set in the stunning Yorkshire Dales that blends its countryside setting with contemporary comfort”. Walkers are of course welcome

With rooms from £120, the price is reasonable given the overall quality of the accommodation.


Day 3: Kettlewell to Oughtershaw (T) – 10.5 miles / 17km

Hazels Roost Bed & Breakfast

It’s expected that when walking long-distance routes in the United Kingdom that the availability of accommodations will be limited. However, in the case of your stopping point at Oughtershaw, there are no accommodation options at the time of writing.

Where does this leave you? Well quite simply, you do three things.

  1. Either book two nights at the previous nights stay and get a lift/taxi to/from the trail
  2. Either book two nights at the next stop and again get a lift/taxi to/from the trail
  3. Find a nice town (in this case Hawes) which would nice for an overnight stop, giving you the opportunity to explore!

Hazels Roost B&B is an unassuming simple and affordable place to stay. It has received excellent reviews, and what’s lacks in fancy decor, it more than makes up for in terms of nice food and comfort.

The lower price point of this B&B will help you to offset the taxis charges for your 12 mile round trip to the B&B.

With double rooms from £80, the price is reasonable given the overall quality of the accommodation.


Day 4: Oughtershaw(T) to Lea Yeat(L) – 11 miles / 18km

Dent Stores Bed and Breakfast

I like unassuming B&B’s. They are often perfect for walkers. After all, there’s nothing quite like walking into the reception of a boutique 4 star B&B to feel like those muddy boots, and sodden waterproof are entirely out of place.

Accommodation like Dent Stores B&B are an ideal option for hikers. They are located away from the trail and a Transfer will be required.

With double rooms from £80, the price is reasonable given the overall quality of the accommodation.


Day 5: Lea Yeat(L) to Sedbergh – 9 miles / 14.5km

Howgills House Bed and Breakfast

Howgills House is an immaculately finished B&B, located close to the trail in the small town of Sedbergh. This recently refurbished, and rather immaculate B&B, complete with two hot tubs to relax tired muscles may be just the kind of super comfortable stay you need!

With double rooms from £90, the price is excellent given the overall quality of the accommodation.


Day 6: Sedbergh to Patton Bridge(L) – 12 miles / 19.5km

Crooke Howe Bed and Breakfast

Patton Bridge is another location that requires a transfer to/from the trail. However don’t sweat, the B&B is only a few minutes up the road by car, and your friendly hosts can even helo with the lift, just don’t forget to ask when you book.


Day 7: Patton Bridge to Bowness-on-Windermere – 13 miles / 20.5km

Brook House Bed and Breakfast

Well done! You have reached the end of the Dales Way. Now for some quality time in this excellent little Lakeland town. Treat yourself to a nice dinner at Porto Restaurant, before turning into Brook House, to rest up in their comfortable beds. You deserve it!


Onward travel from Bowness-On-Windermere

If you are traveling by public transport you are in luck! It’s not uncommon for long-distance trails to start and finish in destinations which are totally lacking public transport, but the Dales Way has a train station! Book tickets using the link below on Trainline. Happy travels hikers!
