Farndale Daffodil Walk

This is a short but stunning walk if you pick the right time of year, as there are literally thousands of daffodils covering the ground as far as the eye can see. It’s best not to go on a weekend as it’s usually packed with tourists but you really do need to go and give it a go sometime. It’s also not far from some excellent moorland haunts and coastal villages so you can always do it as part of a day out.

If you want to make it a bit longer you can head past the Feversham arms up the bank to The Lion at Blakey Ridge or take one of the many paths that lead up and around the valley.

Distance: 4 Miles

Terrain: Woodland paths

Best time of year: Spring so the daffodil’s are in full bloom.

Refreshments: Daffy Cafe at High mill and Feversham arms in Church houses.

Start/Finish: SE 676 950 (We parked on the grass verge just outside of the village)

From the road head down and over the bridge towards Low Mill, past the car park on your right, before you get to the post office take the footpath on your right.

After this its really simple, just follow the clear path keeping the river on your left hand side all the way up to High Mill, here you can either turn round and trace your route back or you can pop through the gate and visit the Daffy cafe or walk a little further up to church houses and nip into the Feversham Arms, which has a lovely little beer garden does great beer and tasty pub grub.
