Book Yorkshire hotels to enjoy 'wonderful woodland walk'
Those who love nothing more than getting out into the great outdoors may wish to book Yorkshire hotels this autumn.
According to an article published in the Guardian, North Yorkshire is home to one of the country's most beautiful walks.
The newspaper asked its readers to offer tips on their favourite rural treks - and correspondent Paul Kirkwood's suggestion of Hackfall Wood went down well with the column's editors.
Found near the village of Grewelthorpe, the area contains ponds, nature trails and various flora and fauna.
Mr Kirkwood particularly highlighted its "churning river" and the Fountains Abbey garden, which has been partly restored after being created in the 18th century.
"The place [has] an air of mystery - it feels like you're discovering it for the first time. At twilight on an autumn day it's magical - a little spooky," he commented.
Yorkshire hotel guests could also decide to tackle other hikes in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park - there are more than 1,400 miles of tracks to choose from.
