My husband and I are going to be visiting friends in London in October 2013 (in a few weeks) and then taking a short trip to the Yorkshire Dales, where we will be spending 3 nights in a cottage near Grassington. So, we will have around 4 full days to travel around the Dales. We hope to one day take our kids on some great hikes in the area. However, the kids are now age 6 1/2 and 4 1/2, so we are trying to keep it real....or at least I am :). I have convinced my husband this is just a "scouting trip" for when the kids are older and can go on some really long hikes. My main question is....DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANY CHILD FRIENDLY SHORTER HIKES OR JUST A PART OF A HIKE WE COULD DO WITH YOUNG CHILDREN? ALSO, ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR FAMILIES WITH SMALL CHILDREN IN THE DALES. My husband and I are huge All Creatures/James Herriot fans, so we are excited to go! We will probably do the James Herriot museum, especially if we get into some rainy weather, which is highly likely. We live in Germany, though we are from the US, so we will probably visit the Dales again in the future. We also hope to one day hike along Hadrian's Wall with the kids. However, for now we want to be realistic and have a good time with the kids. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
