You could just while away an hour in a lovely Yorkshire Dales cafe or tea room, or spend some time in a traditional Dales pub. We've got lots of dog-friendly cafes and pubs too.
Your extra hour would be plenty of time to get started exploring somewhere you don't know so well, or to discover some of the hidden gems using our downloadable treasure maps for Hawes, Masham, Malham, Richmond, Sedbergh, Settle, Clapham, or Ingleton.
If you don't fancy being too active, then maybe just hunker down and read the free-to-download Yorkshire Dales Guide to Health & Happiness, packed with ideas for ways to enjoy time in the Yorkshire Dales.
How about a walk to gather some of nature's jewels or even a little mudlarking when the rivers aren't too high? There are some other ways to enjoy nature here. With such beauty all around us, it's no surprise that so many artists and makers are inspired. Spend your hour getting to know some of them here.
Depending on the transport you choose you could really make the most of your extra hour, seeing more of the Yorkshire Dales riding on a heritage train line. Or do the opposite and just sit and enjoy the peace, enjoying doing absolutely nothing but taking in the views, breathing the fresh air, listening to the birds and insects around you and the joy of small things.
