I am lucky to be able to stay in my Dad’s place in Nidderdale, North Yorkshire, from time to time. From the town of Knaresborough you can walk up Nidd Gorge following the route of the river.
You can hire boats in Knaresborough if you fancy some messing about on the river.
Upriver from Pateley Bridge is Gouthwaite Reservoir.
Trying to get to the pub we came across the drivers worst nightmare, on winding country roads, cyclists, tractors and a bus!
