Steaped in history, Coverdale has some great places to visit and beautiful things to see. Set in the far east of the Yorkshire Dales, this dale takes its name from the River Cover and runs from Wensleydale all the way to the wonderful Park Rash Pass. There are many small villages resting along the steep sides of Coverdale, and historically it was once the resedence of King Richard the III who preferred to live in Middleham Castle than in the palaces of London.
Have a wonderful day out and take a look at the impressive castle ruins fit for a King! Middleham is also the centre of the racehorse world and you can even take a tour around some of the stables, meet the horses and talk to the trainers.
