Full of limestone pavements and scars, caves and open moors, this diverse and varied scenery offers a wealth of wonderful cycle tracks and walks through areas full of natural interest.

As one of the less well-known villages in the area, this wonderful little settlement offers a quiet location off the beaten track and away from the crowds. With the towns of Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale, Skipton and Kendal all close by, Austwick provides peace and quiet without leaving you feeling marooned.

From a friendly next door lady to the friendy staff at Elaine's cafe, This is the place to come for a well deserved 'rest'. As it was the third week of continous rain, our walks, especially up Ingleton Waterfalls were made even more spectacular, fantastic, also Gorsdale Scar. Nevr watched the TV all week, just enjoyed playing games in a wonderfully warm kitchen. The Childs Edition of Trivial Pursuit was So difficult, but great fun.
My one and only complaint might be the uneveness of the upstairs passage way. Quite difficult to walk along, especially when one has had a 'little' drink...or two. Settle Down Cafe was very charming, great staff. In all great week, might go back sometime.
Thanks to all concerned in helping to make it a special event.
