A day trip to Bolton Abbey

I was lucky enough to spend the day wandering around the beautiful ruins of Bolton Abbey, in the Yorkshire Dales last week and loved it so much I thought I would share it with you.

After exploring the most amazing ruins for the abbey we strolled along the river before sitting to enjoy the peaceful sound of the running water.

It is tradition to walk across the river using the small stepping stones placed parallel to the bridge. Me and Tom took up the challenge wondering what all the fuss was about and thinking that it looked easy. I had second thoughts in the middle, as I quickly realised how deep the water was, how little the stones were and how unsuitable my outfit was for swimming.

Thankfully we made it to the other side without getting wet. After a stroll around the other side of the river and a failed attempt to have a go on a rope swing, we wandered back across and not wanting to tempt fate we used the foot bridge instead this time.
I wore a new skirt I got as a present for my birthday, it's a cute Topshop tartan one, which I love. It reminds me of the styles they wear in one of my favourite films, Clueless.

Have you ever been to Bolton Abbey? I would love to hear if you have any suggestions for places to visit around Yorkshire too.
