Yorkshire Dales family holidays - a weekend in and around Skipton

There's nowhere quite like the Yorkshire Dales for a jam-packed few days of family fun in the UK - fuelled by fresh air and Yorkshire ice-cream. Yorkshire Dales family holiday adventures are my specialty. This mum of two spends all her spare time exploring the Dales with my kids in tow and I never get any complaints from either of my boys (well not much!). Whatever the weather, there's loads of fun to be had, and happy kids means happy parents, right?

The ideal base for this short break, which is perfect for younger primary school-age children and pre-schoolers is around the market town of Skipton - the 'Gateway to the Dales'. Here you have tons of attractions and amenities close by, access to the great outdoors and plenty of rainy day options should the good old British weather play up.
