About Knotts View

Knotts View is a former shippon, or cow shed, recently transformed into a welcoming self-catering holiday home sleeping six people in three bedrooms. If you're a person who loves spending time outdoors, walking, mountain biking and enjoying spectacular views that change with the seasons, you'll fall head-over-heels for this holiday cottage. It is a short drive from Austwick, a quiet village in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to Settle and the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and under an hour from Kendal and the Lake District.

Austwick is small in stature but big on charm. It's best known for its annual street market and Cuckoo Festival, when the usual population of 500 swells significantly as people come from around the region to celebrate. The village boasts an award-winning restaurant, a pub and a village shop, with more amenities available a few miles away in the market town of Settle, which has a traditional market every Tuesday, independent shops that include a superb cheesemonger, and places to eat and drink. If you're planning to tackle the 24-mile Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks route during your stay, you'll be inspired by views of Pen-y-ghent and Ingleborough from the house and garden. Other routes go to Wharfe Woods, Oxenber, the Norber Erratics and Crummackdale, and there's no shortage of mountain bike trails and bridleways.

Settle and the surrounding area has lots to offer visitors in all seasons. The ancient limestone landscape is as magical underground as above, and there are remains of Roman settlements, quarries and Neolithic communities. Local attractions include Scaleber Force waterfall, the Museum of North Craven Life, and the Settle to Carlisle Railway. Visit in spring to walk through bluebell-filled woods, summer for wild swimming, autumn for fell-running through the fading bracken, and at any time of year for incredible food, exciting events, and a fabulously warm Yorkshire welcome.
