About the location
Kettlewell 3 miles; Grassington 4 miles.
Kilnsey is a small village in Wharfedale, lying between the villages of Grassington and Kettlewell, near Arncliffe and just across the River Wharfe from Conistone. The most notable feature of Kilnsey is the large limestone cliff of Kilnsey Crag, overlooking the road and the River Wharfe from the west. This dramatic outcrop stands around 170 feet high, with an overhang of 40 feet. West from Kilnsey, towards Malham Tarn runs the historic Mastiles Lane, originally a Roman marching road and later an important drovers way leading to Fountains Abbey, now offering a superb track for walkers and cyclists. The local pub was built in the 17th century as a coaching inn for travellers passing through Wharfedale, and serves local ales with a traditional atmosphere. Kilnsey Angling Club is based here, and you can purchase a day ticket to enjoy trout fishing in a peaceful setting on the River Wharfe. Home to Kilnsey Park, offering a variety of leisure activities and excellent cuisine, the park also provides fly fishing opportunities on its well-stocked lakes, fun for the children with friendly farm animals and pony trekking, the chance to see the UK’s rarest orchid, or why not simply relax amidst the stunning scenery and watch red squirrels play? Down dale is Bolton Abbey, with its pretty ruins, priory, limestone stepping-stones and well-loved Strid Walk. A little further is the elegant town of Ilkley, bordered by the famous Ilkley Moor. Up dale are Kettlewell and Buckden, boasting spectacularly beautiful limestone scenery. Kilnsey offers a well-located base for your Yorkshire dales adventure.
