A New Yorkshire & Lake District Itinerary. Input, please?

Jump to last reply

Your input has been so helpful as we plan our June 2014 trip, I’m hoping I can beg your indulgence yet again. We have a plan we’re comfortable with but, before we spend the next year dreaming about it, will you tell us if our plan has any fatal flaws?

Our travel dates are June 8-26. I’m unable to travel earlier, and I assume traveling later wouldn’t have any advantages for people who are crowd-averse. Here is our draft itinerary:

Nights of June 8-10 London (Bloomsbury)
Nights of June 11-13 York
Nights of Jun 14-18 the Dales, staying in Middleham
Nights of June 19-23 Lake District, staying at Sandhills Farm, Bassenthwaite
Nights of June 24 Back to York (to return car and train south)
Nights of June 25-26 Cambridge

If you remember my earlier posts, we planned to visit the Moors and Dales, but we’ve dropped the Moors in favor of the Lake District. We plan a day trip from York to visit Helmsley and walk to Rievaulx Abbey.

We’ll have a car in the Dales and Lake District.

Our specific concerns:
> Is the month of June too busy to enjoy a quiet trip to the Lake District?

> Is there an expectation that the Tour de France will make the Dales much busier in advance of the race?

> Are we allocating our all-too-short time in a reasonable way?

Thank you all.
