The Farndale Daffodil Walk is handpicked as one of the top six walks by the North York Moors. Even without the daffodils, the walk is peaceful along the River Dove. This walk returns through the hills, giving another experience of the Farndale countryside.
The window of opportunity to see the daffodils is quite small. The daffodils are usually out between mid-March and mid-April and then spend the rest of the year in hibernation. Unfortunately, I just missed the window of opportunity during this guide, and there were no daffodils along the route. The daffodil images are courtesy of Andrew Walks.
