Please find below a selection of holiday cottages in South Yorkshire / South Yorkshire Dales.
Scenically things don't get much better. The remarkable Three Peaks of Ribblesdale. Spectacular limestone scars and outcrops in Upper Wharfedale. The fertile valley of Littondale. The ever-changing landscapes of Malhamdale. And Yorkshire's very own 'Little Switzerland', the impressive How Stean Gorge in Nidderdale. Just a few reasons to book a South Yorkshire Dales cottage.
The timeless appeal of the Dales has acted as a magnet to walkers for a long time, offering gentle rambles and demanding hikes like the Pennine Way and highly rewarding Three Peaks Walk, a 25-mile circular trek that includes a fair amount of climbing. Other excellent walking can be found in and around Malham Cove, Gordale Scar, Malham Tarn and the Forest of Bowland; or along the Strid Wood Nature Trails of Bolton Abbey Estate. Caving and potholing are popular too, plus many other activities.
Days out take on a whole new meaning and cater for everyone. Barge trips along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal. Rail trips on the Settle-Carlisle Railway. Picnics in the grounds of Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal. Marvelling at the weird and wonderful formations of Brimham Rocks. Spotting rare feathered friends at Gouthwaite Reservoir. Unearthing fascinating facts at the Nidderdale Museum.
Or sample the delights of pretty stone villages and colourful market towns. Skipton with its mighty medieval castle; Settle with its distinctive two-storey arched Shambles; the cobbled backwaters of Dent; the riverside setting of Burnsall - Grassington, Kettlewell, Arncliffe, Pateley Bridge...the list goes on.
