Unlike most of the Yorkshire Dales, Dentdale looks west towards the Lake District and is in the county of Cumbria, though included in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This aspect means that it enjoys a milder climate and it is more thickly wooded than many of the Yorkshire Dales.

Its capital, Dent, is hidden in a maze of lanes and is one of the most attractive villages of the Dales. Its dog-legged main street is lined with stone cottages that front directly onto the cobbles, or cluster around the church. It is a fascinating spot to explore, with the added benefit of good pubs and an excellent tea shop.

You could, of course, start this walk in the village but we think it is best to start downstream of the village and climb part way up the valley side to enjoy lovely views across the dale. A visit to the village is then followed by an easy stroll by the river back to the start.
