Ruskin's View at Kirkby Lonsdale

Here at iknow we've joined the countdown to 'More Dales' - the extension of the Yorkshire Dales National Park boundary. It very rarely occurs, but from the 1st August 2016 the Yorkshire Dales National Park's boundary will be expanded by 161 square miles (417 square kilometres). New magnificent upland landscape is to become part of the National Park - new areas stretch into Cumbria and Lancashire!

So just where and what are the new areas to be incorporated in to one of Britain's favourite National Parks? To the north the wild limestone-terraced plateau of Great Ashby Scar and the gentle rounded peaks of the Howgill Fells are new areas along with icons like Wild Boar Fell and Mallerstang. In the west fells including Casterton, Barbon, Leck and Middleton are joining. The new look larger Yorkshire Dales National Park will almost meet up with the Lake District National Park!

A stunning landscape to be incorporated is the Lune Valley famed for the poet John Ruskin's favourite view and the old Devil's Bridge across the River Lune. Both Wordsworth and Ruskin adored the Lune Valley. The market town of Kirkby Londale will sit just on the edge of the new expanded boundary and is already one of the most popular accommodation bases in the area packed with fine real ale inns, quirky shops and great places to stay.

Keep in touch with progress on the official Yorkshire Dales National Park website and come and explore the exciting new areas of the Yorkshire Dales for yourself. Book your stay in the Lune Valley and other areas of the new look Dales from the outstanding choice of accommodation below.
