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.
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?
