" Settle is a wonderful, bustling, historic Yorkshire Dales market town at the gateway to Upper Ribblesdale and in sight of the wild and lovely Forest of Bowland.

The town is full of quality independent shops, cafés, inns and restaurants and is home to the world famous Settle-Carlisle Railway.

The surrounding limestone landscape abounds with dry stone walls, meadows, scars, peaks (three of them!), field barns, waterfalls, becks, caves, potholes ..... and sheep!

Settle is the best place in the world (probably!) for the quality of the fell walking, cycling, mountain biking, sight-seeing and the friendly welcome of which you are assured.

We look forward to seeing you soon!"

A Feast of Festivals!

We are so easy to get to - however you decide to travel!

"Scribble by the Ribble"

Paul Jackson's blog captures

Life and Landscapes in Upper Ribblesdale


North Ribblesdale in the Yorkshire Dales — Three Peaks country of Penyghent, Whernside and Ingleborough — where the River Ribble rushes by limestone scars and over thrilling waterfalls. That’s my homeland and the source of my regular blog posts. Thanks for dropping by. I’m Paul Jackson. I spent almost twenty years in local newspapers before joining Country Publications where I stayed for another 19+ years up to retiring in 2012. During my time with the company I was production editor and later editorial director, editing the famous Yorkshire Dalesman magazine as well as the celebrated national magazine The Countryman. Nowadays I spend my time doing a little freelance work, strolling around the dales or watching Huddersfield Town FC. My main hobby is photography — but I’m very much an enthusiastic amateur. You can view some of my pictures in the scenic or life galleries or in my post archive.
