The Area

About the Area

It would be a brave person who tried to capture in a single web page the wealth of possibilities during a visit to the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland. There are so many places to visit, activities to try and things to do that we couldn’t possibly list them all, so we won’t try.

Settle has many events throughout the year, including the Flowerpot Festival in July and August, Settle Stories, Folk Gatherings, live music at the Victoria Hall and other venues, railway walks and so on.

If you have found us on the internet you will also find masses of information about the area.

However to get you started here are a few useful links.
