Accessing the Yorkshire Dales from Ravenstonedale is an easy and picturesque drive. A short drive to Nateby leads to an open fell road that goes to Swaledale. A drive down Mallerstang, itself a picturesque valley, leads to Wensleydale. Both of these routes are easily extended to take in any part of the Yorkshire Dales. Ravenstonedale extends to the Dales via beautiful open countryside and does not involve any drive through urban areas.
