About the location
Long Preston 2 miles; Settle 6 miles; Skipton 13 miles.
The Ribblesdale village of Wigglesworth sits on the western edge of North Yorkshire, in the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Wigglesworth is home to The Plough Hotel, serving real ales and excellent food. Two miles away is Long Preston, an attractive Yorkshire Dales village in Malhamdale, which benefits from two excellent pubs with first rate cuisine and the railway station on the edge of the village provides access to the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway line which crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Wigglesworth is thirteen miles from Skipton (popularly known as the 'Gateway to the Dales') and six miles from Settle. Settle is a bustling market town with a weekly market, the centre being dominated by the Shambles, an historic three-storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. There is a good selection of restaurants and pubs here too. Wigglesworth is a great base.
