The star-studded cast of 'Calendar Girls' came to know
and love this delightful village as it provided the setting for
'Knapely' in the award-winning blockbuster.
Located in Wharfedale within the Yorkshire Dales National Park,
it's the ideal choice if you're looking for somewhere small
and friendly, with the emphasis firmly placed on enjoying the
Fantastic walks and more from your Kettlewell cottage
Many visitors bring boots and maps for high fell and riverside
walking at their best. Trek from the village up the slopes of Great
Whernside for sweeping vistas across the Dales. Or head slightly
further afield to Buckden Pike, offering equally impressive views
and site of a memorial monument dedicated to a Polish aircrew who
lost their lives here during WW2. Cycling and caving are other
popular activities, while climbers will love the challenge of
nearby Kilnsey Crag, with its daring overhang.
If cruising in comfort along country lanes holds more appeal,
you'll be pleased to know your Kettlewell cottage makes a great
starting point for some fantastic drives.
Whatever you decide to do, welcome refreshments are always on
hand at Kettlewell's friendly hostelries, whether a brew, a
pint or a plate of hearty grub takes your fancy. Inviting shops and
other amenities offer everything from stamps and waterproofs to a
grocery pre-order and delivery service - great for cottage
And if you're travelling with children, book your Kettlewell
cottage well in advance for the Scarecrow Festival in August, a
nine-day extravaganza of fun and entertainment.
