Situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this is arguably one of the finest areas for walking in the region. With limestone pavements and scars, caves and open moors, the area has a wealth of natural interest and there are wonderful cycle tracks and walks on the doorstep. Austwick boasts a local pub serving excellent home cooked meals and a country hotel for something a little more special, as well as a shop and post office for visitors’ daily requirements. This quiet village is nicely off the beaten track, yet the market towns of Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale, Skipton and Kendal are all within easy driving distance.

Mr Hunt, Bristol, September 2012
The location is excellent for accessing the Dales. The property was clean and modern. The local pub food is that good that we didn't need to cook.
Mr Brown, Coventry, September 2012
Lovely, bright, modern studio in a good area. Lots of interesting walks and pretty villages within a 15 mile radius. Made very welcome by friendly owners.
