Go on a National Park Wildflower Spring Safari

Farndale, North Yorkshire

From wild daffs to bluebell carpets, the woods and meadows of the North York Moors come alive with colour from March onwards.

They are not just any old daffodils, they are true native daffodils, seen at their best in the hidden valley of Farndale. A riverside walk along the charming River Dove is the best way to experience this yellow blaze – with time for tea and cake at the ‘Daffy Caffy’. Later in spring come the bluebells, with handsome showings in the woods of the Esk Valley and a spectacular splash at Roseberry Topping.

Make your rural escape even easier by turning your stroll into an English countryside safari by overnighting in one of the North York Moors’ cosy country inns.
