Region: From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?
Town: On the south west edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, lies the busy market town of Settle. Situated beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - with cliffs, caves and potholes to explore â this busy little town looks out on some of the best scenery in the country. Settle's market tradition continues today and every Tuesday, the square is filled with a wide range of stalls offering local crafts and other items. For the rest of the week, the square is home to a number of local businesses and plays host to the historic three-storey building called The Shambles. With a good selection of shops and restaurants, and a traditional town cinema operating on Fridays and Saturdays, Settle has something for everyone. If, however, you're looking to travel further into the region, the Settle-Carlisle Railway crosses breathtaking countryside.

We were part of a group of adult Anglo / American couples that spent a week at the Bookilber Barn. The property is accessed by a two mile bumpy, gravel lane through open fields with not another property in sight. This caused us to question if we were on the right route even though the directions warned us about the access lane. Then all of a sudden this wonderful stone barn appears. It looks nice from the outside. When you step inside you find that you have entered into the world of an imaginative interior designer. The Bookilber Barn is a first class set up. Everything is top drawer. One fact you need to be aware of is that only four of the six bedrooms are suitable for adult couples. This fact was made clear on the owner's web-site but it was not clear on the Sykes Cottages web-site at the time of our booking.
