Travel with us on this truly unique private seven day tour to see the places you may only have read about, and we will show you parts of England that you would never have imagined to exist.

You may wish to carry on to our East coast and experience the buzz of Whitby Harbour or sleepy Staithes.

Your access to our knowledge of the Dales doesn’t end when you arrive back at Curlew Barn; we could enjoy a well earned cup of tea, cold drink, or something stronger, and a chat about your day, answering any questions you may have or you may simply want to stroll across the fields to digest what you’ve seen in peace.
