I have walked the Dales Way each of the last 3 years. The first year was a standard 6 day walk but the last two years my wife & I have taken 9 walking days to enjoy the route, villages, scenery etc. I have stayed at the premises listed below, some on all three occasions and I highly recommend them all. Some are more expensive than others but you will not be disappointed with any.

Archway Cottage, Ilkley
Knowles Lodge, Howgill
Devonshire Hotel, Grassington
Romany Cottage, Buckden
Camm Farm, Camm Houses
River View, Lea Yeat
Bull Hotel, Sedbergh
High Barn, Shaw End, Patton Bridge
Hollin Root Farm, Garth Row
Eagle & Child, Staveley
Fairfield, Bowness.

Good luck with your planning and of course your walk.
