Lots to see and do

Settle is on the edge of the Dales National Park and is a popular destination for walkers and cyclists, cavers and climbers. It is on the popular Way of the Roses cycle route from Morecambe to Bridlington. We can provide secure storage for bikes and there are several hire companies in Settle.

We'd be happy to advise on walks for all abilities, whether you want a fairly gentle walk with a cafe in the middle and a pub at the end or whether you are aiming for the 10 mile "Settle loop" or the 3 peaks challenge. The three peaks are easily accessible by road or rail.

You can see the start of the Attermire scar walk from the house and if you have the energy to climb the hill you will be rewarded by the most spectacular views and caves where the remains of hippos, lions, bears and wolves have been found.

Climbing Castleberg Crag (the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain) is easier than it looks and is worth it for the view.

We have facilities for storing boots and for drying out wet clothes.

The river Ribble is renowned for its fishing. There are salmon ladders built into the weirs and if you are lucky enough, in the Autumn, you can see the salmon leaping on their way to spawn. Even if the salmon are nowhere to be seen the river walks are stunning.

The Lake District is only 40 minutes drive away and you could be in Scotland by train in two hours. The quaint and beautiful Settle Station is a very short walk from the house and Settle to Carlisle is acknowledged to be the most scenic railway journey in the UK. There are regular trains to Leeds.

Settle has some lovely shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants so you needn't travel anywhere. We even have a theatre! However, if you do wish to strike out, we can advise you on places to visit and where the best shops are.

If you feel like being pampered there is a beauty Spa and gym just a short walk from the house and a variety of hairdressers. Let us know if you would like us to make appointments for you or, for parties, we can arrange for beauty therapists and hairdressers to come to the house.
