Hull Ferry Port to The Lake District National Park
Published: 20/02/2021
Yorkshire Dales.
I designed this route to get you from the Hull ferry to the Lake District using the best scenic way possible.
This route will take you through 3 National Parks and avoid most of the major roads. The route ends at a road junction where you can then choose the best route to your final destination in The Lake District (see pic 3).
The route uses a dual carriageway to get past Hull and Beverley and then it is fast but rural roads passing through the occasional town or village. The North York Moors Visitor Centre RP 8 is an interesting and convenient place to stop, stretch your legs and have a coffee.
After passing under the busy A1(M), you will soon be at the highlight of this route and the 2nd National Park of this route, The Yorkshire Dales. The roads and the scenery soon change to open moorland, drystone walls and steep and twisty roads. Be aware that some of these roads are narrow and will have cattle grids.
View the Aysgarth Falls at RP 14. Aysgarth Falls are a triple flight of waterfalls, surrounded by woodland and farmland, carved out by the River Ure over an almost one-mile stretch on its descent to mid-Wensleydale. Here, you will also see the historic Yore Mill, built as a cotton mill in 1784. The mill is really a complex of historic buildings clustered around a picturesque bridge over the River Ure. There are several cottages, a miller's house, stables, a blacksmith's forge, and cart sheds.
Though built to grind corn the mill was later a woollen mill, a corn mill, a flax mill, and a cotton mill before being converted to stocking manufacture.
There is another scheduled stop at a very pretty village called Muker RP 17, here you will find a nice pub serving lunches or a really quaint Tea Shop (Yorkshire for cafe) serving tea, coffee and light snacks.
There are many opportunities to stop for photos including the stunning Wain Wath Force (waterfall). Situated on the infant River Swale, set in the beautiful scenery of Swaledale, one of most beautiful dales in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
The route ends at its 3rd National Park, The Lake District ready for you to find your accommodation and start your tour.
