Bransdale is an area of moorland managed by the National Trust; it is one of the most isolated valleys in the North York Moors. There are only a few farmhouses and a hamlet called Cockayne nearby which makes it the perfect place for an autumn walk.

Parking on the roadside we followed a route we’d found online starting at the tiny church of St Nicholas. We made our way downhill from here until we reached an area that was signposted as Bransdale Basecamp and followed the arrows.

The surrounding scenery is lovely, and the leaves were just starting to turn, and the heather was also out on the moors. We passed an old building along the way which is in the process of being turned into a holiday cottage and I imagine it would be a brilliant place to stay, sort of in the middle of nowhere with open space for miles around.
