Yorkshire Dales
Beautiful village located by the River Wharfe in the south east section of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Burnsall is within Wharfedale which is the Yorkshire Dales valley that's been cut by the River Wharfe as it flows from the high moors at Langstrothdale Chase down through the area around Burnsall towards Ilkley Moor and beyond.

The village is famous for its bridge over which the Dales Way long distance footpath runs. The Dales Way links Ilkley to Bowness-on-Windermere.

The Local Area
Given Burnsall's location in a National Park, there's plenty to do and see in the local area. To the south east, visit Bolton Priory and Barden Tower. To the north west and west, explore Linton Falls, Gordale Scar and the superb Malham Cove. Beyond those, try the area around Gaping Gill and Ribblehead Viaduct. North of Burnsall, discover Aysgarth Waterfalls.

Further Afield
Beyond the boundary of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, we'd recommend visiting Saltaire World Heritage Site to the south east and Fountains Abbey World Heritage Site to the east. Try also Leeds Royal Armouries, Ripon Cathedral, Jervaulx Abbey and Richmond Castle.

If you're staying in the Burnsall area for a longer holiday then make the effort to travel further east to visit York and the North York Moors National Park.
