Natural Retreats, Yorkshire Dales
The Yorkshire Dales, with its rich green hills and ancient forests cut through by rivers and streams, is a truly idyllic location. Covering 1,762 square kilometres (680 square miles), the Yorkshire Dales National Park is located in the north of England, and straddles the central Pennines in the counties of North Yorkshire and Cumbria.
