Around and About

The location in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks area is surrounded by a choice of walking and cycling opportunities and perfect for touring the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, the Howgill Fells, the West Coast and the Forest of Bowland.

A choice of scenic footpaths surround the farm, and we are situated close to the Settle-Carlisle Railway with local stations at Horeton in Ribblesdcale and Ribblehead with its famous viaduct.  The close proximity of the Settle-Carlisle Railway puts daytrips to Carlisle, Appleby, York and Leeds within easy reach. 

Our nearest inns are just 3 miles away at Horton in Ribblesdale or Ribblehead, and a general store is in Horton in Ribblesdale.  A wide selection of shops are in the nearby towns of Settle, Ingleton and Hawes.


From the A65 take the road to Settle and pick up the B6479 to Horton-in-Ribblesdale.  After 5 miles go through Horton-in-Ribblesdale and on for about 3 miles to Selside.  Once in the hamlet look out for a red telephone box on the right.  Turn right on the track towards the black and white house (Selside Farm).  The Byres is to the left of the black and white house.  The owner lives in the right part of the black and white house (Selside Farmhouse).  The Byres key is available from here.
