About The North Pennines

It’s official – the North Pennines are beautiful. Designated an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a UNESCO geological heritage site, this undulating area of North Yorkshire has spectacular scenery and a landscape that could tell the story of aeons gone by. Tiny stone-house villages and hamlets dot the valleys and cluster around babbling rivers – Bowlees is particularly idyllic and is home to the North Pennines information centre....
