Today we make our way to Leyburn and visit the Teapottery, where a huge variety of teapots in all shapes and guises are produced and is next door to the Little Chocolate Shop where you can see all kinds of chocolate being handmade. We continue our journey to the delightful town of Hawes where we visit the Cheese Experience at the Wensleydale Creamery, home of Yorkshire's most famous cheese and discover the history of real cheese. Hawes is also home of Wensleydale Pottery and Hawes Ropemakers and the town abounds in antique shops and tea rooms. Leaving Hawes we head along the dales to Aysgarth and Bishopdale over the hills to Upper Wharfedale and Grassington, this is one of the Dales best loved villages with its cobbled square and interesting little alleyways.

 

Day Three

Morning at leisure to explore Harrogate with broad tree lined boulevards, abundant greenery, flowers and plants; it is little wonder that the town is a frequent winner of Britain in Bloom. Harrogate also boasts the world famous Betty's Tearooms, founded in 1919 by a Swiss confectioner and just around the corner is Farrar's of Harrogate, established in 1840 and best known for its Original Harrogate Toffee, favourite sweet of the late Queen Mother. We continue our drive to Ripon with its magnificent cathedral; here we will have time for lunch and a wander before continuing to delightful Masham where we visit the award winning Black Sheep Brewery.

 

Day Four

Our first stop this morning is the small village of Kilburn under the famous White Horse, the village is home to Mousey Thompson, the famous woodworker renowned for his little mouse carvings which adorn his hand carved oak furniture, whilst here we will visit the Mousey Thompson Visitor Centre to get an insight to this artisan. We continue via Byland Abbey and Ampleforth to Helmsley where we take a break and have time to obtain lunch. A visit to the cheese shop in the market place is a real treat or you may wish to visit Helmsley Walled Garden. Just around the corner from the garden is Ryeburn of Holmsley, purveyors of award winning ice-cream and serving just about the best ice cream you will every taste. Leaving Helmsley we make for Thirsk and visit the 'World of James Herriot' a fascinating tour including many of the props and three studio sets as featured in the long running TV series based on the life and times of local vet Alf Wright.

 

Day Five

This morning after a leisurely breakfast we begin our journey home with refreshment stops enroute.
