The small Yorkshire market town of High Bentham is ideal for exploring the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the north and east, with the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stretching away to the south.

High Bentham is a busy little town with a weekly cattle market, good local shops and services and a choice of pubs providing meals. The 18-hole golf course is well known for its stunning views and friendly atmosphere. The High Bentham area is threaded with public footpaths and rights of way that are well documented in a local walk guide and cover locations such as the River Wenning or the Great Stone of Fourstones, a relic of the ice age and a spectacular viewpoint. The market towns of Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale, Skipton and Kendal are all within easy driving distance.

The quiet and relaxed surroundings. The cottage was so comfortable that the rain didn't matter.

I can only comment on the cottage as we spent a lot of time in it. It was very nice, somewhere you could live as your home.
