About the location


Settle 1 mile; Malham 6 miles; Skipton 16 miles.

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?

Set below a limestone scar in the Craven Fault, the lovely Ribblesdale village of Giggleswick is just across the river from the bustling market town of Settle. With a variety of traditional houses and cottages, many of which date back to the 17th Century as the 'date stones' over their doorways will confirm, this charming village is still centred around the beautiful St Alkelda's church, a 12th Century construction, and the famous domed chapel at Giggleswick School. With a handful of shops and pubs, the village provides the bare essentials but for a wider range of amenities visitors should take a trip to nearby Settle, which is within easy walking distance. The town of Ingleton is also close by and is worth visiting for its splendid waterfall walk.
