    Kaiden aged 12 and Sienna aged 10 insisted on adding their comments as they enjoyed it so much. Kaiden:- It is the best cottage I've ever been to. Me and my family loved everything about it. The beds are really cosy and comfy it had an endless amount of books to read. Also the cottage is in the grounds of a farm with horses, sheep, a dog named Dora and two cats and if you ask your allowed to stroke the horses. in my opinion Connor, Firgil and Berty are the best. Sienna:- It was the best experience I've ever had because there cottage is amazing it has loads of books in and I loved the beds they were so soft and comfy there is also a farm that I loved and was always there because it was fun there’s chickens horses Dora the dog sheep it was lovely Dora was always wanting to play catch with me and she’s so adorable the horses were very nicely treated and they do not bite or kick they just lick you I loved George and Maize because they were the most harmless and they were not big like Connor and Fergal they are very chilled and there are lots of places to go nearby like my favourite which was the climbing wall which is not far away it was amazing I recommend it for you.

The property

Fold Bank sits in an elevated, rural location on the edge of Burn Moor near Bentham, with uninterrupted views towards Ingleborough.

Set on the owner's smallholding, with sheep, pigs and horses, this cosy, semi-detached stone barn conversion is just the ticket for a holiday exploring this stunning area of North Yorkshire.

From the comfortable dining kitchen, the adjoining sitting room is the perfect place to relax and plan the day’s adventures while upstairs, the three bedrooms will make you feel right at home, providing all the comfort you need after a day exploring, or even shopping!

The fabulous views across the valley to the Three Peaks, made up of Ingleborough, Pen-y-ghent and Whernside, provide all the inspiration you need to get out and experience the beauty of limestone country, with its myriad of walks to suit all abilities.

On clear days, you can even see as far as The Lake District!

Great grey cliffs stand above the dale, criss-crossed with mile after mile of dry stone walls, while ferns make themselves a home in the grikes and cracks of the area’s limestone pavements.

For ornithologists, a large variety of bird life can be seen, including buzzards soaring overhead, wheatears, curlews, lapwings and dippers flitting up and down the many becks.

Ingleborough Cave offers conducted tours leading you through a most exciting and beautiful underground world of stalactites and stalagmites, sculpted by nature over millions of years.

The cave holds many attractions, including the Elephant's Legs and Tail, the Skittles and Pillar Hall.

Nearby, you can visit The Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Pendle Hill, an iconic landmark with the local area famous for the Pendle Witches who were hanged in 1652.

If you fancy a day out in The Lake District, it is easily accessible in a short drive and the pretty town of Kendal is less than 30 miles away, making Fold Bank a superb base for touring this scenic area, all year round.

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. The Bowland fells and the nearby three peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent provide excellent terrain for the enthusiastic walker, while the delights of the Lake District and the spectacular coastal scenery of Morecambe Bay are only half an hour away. High Bentham is a busy little town with a weekly cattle market, good local shops and services, as well as a good choice of pubs serving food, while 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 walking guide and cover locations such as the River Wenning and 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, making this lovely little town a great holiday base.
