Dalesman Magazine
Celebrating all of Yorkshire

“The Dalesman has proved to be something of a river; it just goes flowing on – and like a river it is, I hope, unstoppable.”Alan Bennett

Dalesman has been celebrating all that’s great about Yorkshire since 1939.

Alongside our flagship Dalesman magazine and a series of other market-leading regional and national magazines, we publish numerous best-selling books, calendars and visitor guides, plus dalesman.co.uk – the insider’s guide to Yorkshire.

The company
Locally owned by an independent Yorkshire publisher, Dalesman is based in a converted watermill at Broughton Hall, near Skipton – just a few miles from its original home in the Dales.

Dalesman magazine
Serving the whole of the traditional county of Yorkshire, plus some bordering areas, Dalesman is not only the top-selling magazine in Yorkshire, it is also the UK’s best-selling regional magazine. With a focus on the countryside of the Dales, North York Moors, coast and Wolds – along with the county capital of York – the magazine celebrates the people and landscapes of God’s Own Country. Each issue of our printed monthly magazine includes features, fiction, humour, photography, puzzles and art – all with a Yorkshire theme. The magazine is available from newsagents, or you can take out a money-saving subscription here.

The online home of Dalesman is our insider’s guide to Yorkshire. Regularly updated, the site is filled with information about where to stay and what to do in this beautiful part of the world. Here you will also find our shop, which sells a wide range of items related to Yorkshire. You can also take out a subscription to one of our magazines with the click of a mouse.


Down the years Dalesman has published hundreds of bestselling books and we remain one of the North of England’s leading book publishers. Each year, we produce a new range of books by some of the county’s best-known authors, including Ian McMillan, Gervase Phinn and Mike Pannett. All our current books can be purchased from this site.

Dalesman publishes a selection of calendars dedicated to Yorkshire landscape, Yorkshire nostalgia and Cumbria. You can purchase a calendar by clicking here.
