Settle is a gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, a national park that is world-famous for the its tranquil scenery, miles of drystone walls, and distinctive fieldbarns. 


With heather moorland, colourful hay meadows, vibrant birdlife, and acres of limestone pavement, the countryside and traditional villages entice visitors from far and wide.  The Dales are the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of modern life.
