Wow! We took the train up to the cottage last week traveling from Skipton to Appleby. Stopped off at Settle to take this photo of the 'Hornby' station there (and for necessary refreshments!) The scenery from the train window was breathtaking!
Arriving In Settle
Settle is a pretty market town with many independent shops on the high street and several welcoming pubs, cafes and restaurants. It even has its own tourist info site that can be found here.
You might find there's enough in Settle, but if there is still sufficient time left in the day, from Settle Station you can choose to continue your journey onto the popular North Yorkshire town of Skipton.
