Yorkshire Dales/Moors in 5 days from London

Jump to last reply

I am planning on travelling up to the Dales/Moors area in the 3rd week of September 2014. My plan is to travel up from London by train to either York or Leeds on Monday, September 15th and hire a car there to explore the area and then return to London on Friday, 19th September.
My main interest is in scenic and nature photography. I would like to spend my time in the most photogenic places the area has to offer, away from crowds if at all possible ;)
From reading these forums (thanks to all the good people providing information and advice) I have settled on Grassington for my base in the Dales.
My question is: Can I really do both the dales and the moors in 3 days or should I focus on just the dales? Would a day spent driving between the dales and the moors be rewarded with good pictures on the moors and on the journey?
While it would be nice to put down roots in one place for 4 nights, might I see a lot more if I keep on the move, spending one night each in 4 different places?
All help greatly appreciated :)
