  • Recommend me …….. A nice driving route near Harrogate
  • I’ve hired a Jag XJS for a weekend in February. Can anybody recommend me a handsome drive, taking in some good roads and lovely countryside?

    Any recommendations for places to visit would be good too. Perhaps a 60ish mile round trip. (V12s like a drink).

    Thanks loves.

    from Harrogate you can easily get into the Dales around Pateley Bridge, that kind of thing. OR maybe a bit further, head up the A61 to Ripon & then head up through Masham towards, Leyburn then Hawes, then back over Blea Moor & back via Ribblehead viaduct, Horton in Ribblesdale, Settle & Skipton. That’s a nice drive on a good day.

    Hiring a car with a big engine then won’t pay for the fuel? Be a man and get up before dawn, drive until dark again.

    To fob. I’ve factored in cash for 300 miles worth of fuel. I think that’s man enough.

    These are some of the roads I go on locally for a drive, all are quite wide and well made with plenty of twisty bits and some overtaking opportunities, and pretty quiet.

    I’d try to head up A61/A6108 Masham route up to Middleham, then the Coverham-Horsehouse-Kettlewell road is fantastic for the views, bringing you back with Kilnsey Crag, Burnsall and Appletreewick, Grassington, then south brings you to Bolton Abbey, then cruise back over Blubberhouses A59 to Harrogate. No end of places to stop and explore on that route, and tons of pubs and posh hotels along the way too.

    Skipton Road over to Greenhow and Appletreewick and on to Kilnsey then get spat out on the A1 for a blast back down, turning off at the Ripon turn for a last bit of A road fun.

    Thanks people.

    Much appreciated (apart from robdob).

    are you talking about centreparcs type cooperation? 😯
