The rain eased just after lunch and stopped by mid afternoon, so we decided to take the chance and take the TA. It turned out to be the right decision as it was a scorching weekend with only a light shower on Saturday night.
We stayed the weekend at The Old Vicarage run by Grant and Barbara Humphreys, who made us feel right at home. If you are ever looking for B&B in the Wensleydale area, you need look no further than here. We recommend it. As an added bonus for MG enthusiasts, Grant is the owner of a very smart TF and he knows all the good driving roads in the area.
The views from The Old Vicarage were stunning.
After a brief return to The Vicarage for a freshen up, it was off out to find an evening meal. There are so many places in the area, and such a variety of menus, we were spoiled for choice.
After another hearty breakfast, we set off on Sunday for some more fun in the sun and had a great day including a visit to Castle Bolton, and Hardraw Force. Hardraw Force if the highest single fall in the Dales and has the added advantage that you have to go through the pub to get to it.
Monday morning saw us saying a sad goodbye to Wensleydale, as we set off to Duncombe Park for the annual fair, where we met friends from the Tees Valley MG Owners Club. A scorching hot day, so hot that my head was burning and I had to buy a hat. Despite the heat it was a super day, with some good chat and plenty to see in the field. Our grateful thanks to Roger for organising the day for us.
