Walk Local

Family walkUpper Nidderdalein the Yorkshire Dales is the source of the River Nidd and a stunning place for walkers of all abilities. Heather-clad moorland tops the valley, flowing to lush green meadows and pastures, which are all valuable havens for wildlife.

At Studfold Reception you will find a map to help with walks, and we also have an onsite display of walk ideas and suggestions. Nidderdale Tourist Information Centre can also help and advise with walks.
