The lovely hamlet of Selside, situated in the heart of the famous Three Peaks, is made up of traditional dwellings surrounding the village green. Full of excellent walking over fells and the famous Three Peaks - Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough - this area offers some of the most challenging paths in the country. Also close by is the Settle to Carlisle Railway, which passes directly through Selside and takes in some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery the region has to offer. Completed in 1870 and only two miles away, the Ribblehead viaduct is a magnificent structure and well worth visiting. Nearby Horton boasts a lovely Norman church and two pubs whilst the market town of Settle offers a further range of amenities. Settle is also home to a pretty market square, a historic three storey building with shops on two levels as well as the Town Hall.
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?
