The historic market town of Settle is renowned for its excellent location adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This is a delightful spot for any holiday maker looking to get the most of the great outdoors. Nearby, within the National Park, there is the beautiful Malham Tarn National Nature Reserve. Ever changing with the seasons, this gem is magical all year round. Although the summer is particularly spectacular where you'll be treated to copious flowers and dragonflies.
The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a wonderful area for lovers of the outdoors to explore. Whether you like climbing, caving, cycling, walking or simply gazing at the stars, there's a lot to do here. The gently meandering River Ribble winds its way through Settle and past old cotton and snuff mills, accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs too. Back in the town itself there is plenty to see. Visit the Giggleswick School Chapel, Victoria Hall or the Gallery on the Green. Whatever brings you to Settle, Big Cottages has a beautiful large cottage or property for your stay.
