As a family with primary school-aged children, we love enjoying a local walk and the views and countryside in Wharfedale are breathtaking. After launching Wharfedale & Craven Mumbler, the hyper-local parenting community, 3 years ago, we have done plenty of exploring of the local area. One of our favourite places is Otley Chevin– there is so much to see and explore there.
The Chevin is situated on the outskirts of Otley. It’s one of our regular go-to places to visit with the children, who can enjoy following a trail, going off the path to explore the forest and build dens, take in some local history and even enjoy the dry stone wall maze! Whatever the weather, the Chevin has something to offer. The tracks are steep in places so a carrier is advised for little ones and it can get a little muddy – but which kid doesn’t love a muddy puddle to splash in?? Read about the great choices of walks for families on Otley Chevin here.
