Skipton, is less than 10 miles away, where there are street markets 4 days per week, and an ancient church. Skipton Castle, one of the finest medieval castles in the country, is well worth a visit, having dungeons, a spiral staircase and a moat. Skipton, is known as the gateway to Yorkshire Dales National Park, whose attractions include Bolton Abbey, Grassington, Malham Cove, the Settle to Carlisle railway crossing Ribblehead Viaduct, Ripley Castle, Newby Hall and Gardens and Brimham Rocks.
Only 5 miles away is the town of Hebden Bridge nestling in a steep sided valley with many interesting shops, cafes and walks. Hardcastle Crags, historic National Trust woodland, lies within easy walking distance of the town. Close by, is the hilltop village of Heptonstall, with ancient buildings including an old Grammar School and ruined church.
Around 10 miles to the north of Skipton is the beautiful old dales village of Grassington. With fabulous boutiques, cafes and inns, it is a fabulous place to spend the day.
A little further afield are the cities of York, Leeds and Bradford where you can find theatres, the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television (Bradford) exploring various places of interest relating to its industrial heritage. And finally, excellent nightlife and famously fantastic curries!
In Halifax you will find the Piece Hall and the famous Shibden Hall, again only 15 minutes away.
For any guests interested in waterways, only 15 minutes from the cottage you will find Bingley Five Rise Locks, or a gentle stroll by the Canals either by narrow boat or by foot!
