The historic town of Skipton, 7.5 miles from the barn, offers a host of attractions including a castle. There are lots of options for eating out eat here and plenty of shops, galleries and boutiques for those who love to shop.

The magnificent Yorkshire Dales begin on the doorstep of Bell Busk, and, as you would expect, the surrounding countryside here is simply magnificent; perfect if you want to strike out from the apartment in your walking boots.

This area is a true walker’s paradise but if you are more of a roamer than a rambler, try a stroll around the grounds of Bolton Abbey, 13.5 miles away. These gorgeous ruins provide the backdrop to a particularly beautiful part of the Dales and are well worth a visit.

Settle, 8.5 miles away, is another destination not to be missed. This well-loved, market town is home to lots of cafes, restaurants, pubs and shops.

Just outside the town, you can hop on the Settle to Carlisle railway, one of the most scenic routes in the UK which will take you over the well-known Ribblehead Viaduct, 12 miles from Settle.

We spent a week at this beautiful cottage. It has been skilfully converted from a stone outhouse, stylishly decorated and furnished to a very high standard. It is also very comfortable. The owners are very friendly, helpful and generous, with a gorgeous welcome pack and very tasty home made cakes. We highly recommend Ash Cottage.

Excellent all round. Superbly equipped and fitted out. Location is great if you want peace, tranquillity, countryside and walking. You would only book this superb place if that is what you wanted. Owner and wife were really friendly and welcoming

The cottage was spotless and there was terrific attention to detail. Everything in the cottage was of the highest quality. The owners were very welcoming and I'm sure that if we'd had any problems, which we hadn't, they would have been dealt with efficiently.
