Herriot Way Walking Holiday
in Yorkshire Northern England
a circular walk from Hawes
via Keld, Reeth, Castle Bolton, Aysgarth and Askrigg

The Herriot Way is a 52 mile circular walking route in the Yorkshire Dales devised by Stuart Greig and is a combination of public footpaths, ancient tracks and quiet country lanes, making a walking route that is easy to follow.

The walk is named after James Herriot, the fictional veterinarian from the books and television series “All Creatures Great and Small”.
On this circular Herriot Way walking holiday from Hawes you visit beautiful valleys, high, open fells and rolling, heather-clad moorland. You cross one of the highest points in Yorkshire, visit historic monuments and pass through a barren industrial wilderness, laid bare through lead mining.
The little Yorkshire town of Askrigg was used as a film location for the James Herriot TV series “All Creatures Great and Small”.

The Herriot Way can be made into a longer walking holiday by connecting with the Richmond Way.

Our self-guided walking holidays are designed with your comfort and enjoyment in mind and can be tailor-made to your own personal requirements.

The routes are clearly way-marked to provide reassurance on your hiking vacation.

We use a selection of guest houses, inns or small hotels with en-suite or private bathroom to ensure you are well rested each night after a busy day hiking and sightseeing. Rest assured that all our accommodation walking holiday providers are hand-picked and offer you that famous British hospitality.

Special diets can be catered for, including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free.

We organize the luggage transfer so your bags are at your next accommodation when you arrive. We try to get your bags delivered by 4pm, but this may be delayed due to road conditions.

Let’s Go Walking has developed one of the largest selection of walking holidays.
Our offices are staffed 9am to 9pm during our walking season (March to September) to ensure your walking holiday runs without a hitch.

All our walking holidays are self-guided and you must be a confident map reader and able to navigate from a compass bearing.  The weather in the UK and Ireland can change quickly effecting visibility and underfoot conditions. It is important to carry a selection of clothing with you on your hike each day to cope with changing weather conditions. If you are not confident of completing any days walk, do not set out.

This walking holiday in the UK operates March to September and in either direction.

The daily distances are only a suggestion. If you would like to walk longer or shorter distances, we can arrange that too.
Our stated distances include mileage to the accommodation or pickup point and so may not agree with the guide book mileages.
Rest days can be taken in any location.

Why not combine this walk with a hiking tour in another part of the UK or Ireland. Our staff will be happy to advise on necessary transfers.

Online booking available.
A deposit of £85 per person is required to secure the booking, with the balance due 6 weeks before departure.
Optional extra days and accommodation upgrades can be added during the booking process online.
Please wait for the confirmation of your holiday before making final travel plans just in case your holiday is not available for your requested date.
