Lovely walk, the first path was quite busy with families and dog walkers, but soon we were in a quiet area, hardly saw anyone and the dog got to play in the snow. The views are stunning from up here. Beautiful waterfall as well, and lot of information points including labelling of different types of trees. Parking was tricky with... More

Set in a woodland environment on the top of Otley Chevin, the hotel/restaurant is built in the Scandinavian "log cabin" style. The lakeside restaurant serves good food - and has a six course taster menu that is great if you like to take your time overt a meal/

This is a wonderful place to spend several hours. Split across two sides of the main road down to Otley, The Chevin forest park has a lot to offer. It is full of trees and spectacular views across to Harrogate and up past Otley and on towards the Yorkshire Dales. Lots of paths to follow-easy to spend hours here.

A great place to go for a walk, if you are a keen walker or just out for a stroll. Can be extremely windy at the top during the winter so be careful if there has been rain. Beautiful views over the Yorkshire Dales.

We went up the Chevin several times as it was such a nice place to walk, the views were incredible, and you can easily watch the planes taking off out of Bradford. It's a pretty easy walk up from the town of Otley. Though a little steep, it takes about half an hour. We followed paths hither and yon to... More

This is a special place for wildlife enthusiasts, dog walkers and lovers of peace and quiet (apart from the planes coming over every few minutes!). Never heaving with people, plenty of space for all to walk or just sit and enjoy the views. Take something warm though if venturing up on an evening as it can get chilly quickly. A... More

As you leave North Leeds and head towards Otley, Skipton and the Lake District you pass the Chevin. Stop and enter this place. Your time will be well spent. Every tree you can name and more. Plants by the score. A lovely place to "wander as a cloud" ( ww). Peace and away from the busy City and noise. A... More

Whether you are young, old or inbetween, a hardened walker, or cyclist or just a beginner. Whether you want an easy walk or a longer more difficult one this is the place to visit. At this time of year wrap up well, it gets a bit fresh when at the surprise view. Views, did I mention the views, 360 degrees,... More

Views, challenging terrain, easy terrain, birdwatching, flora and fauna. Wonderful place for inspiring youngsters, and for running, walking, cycling, horse riding, orienteering, picnics and so much more. Try the Ramblers' Tea Rooms at the Cheerful Chilli for a good cuppa, coffee, and good food.
