WHAT TO DO AND WHERE TO GO

Skirfare Barn, is the last building in Kilnsey when heading north, and is situated right at the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park with easy access to an abundance of walks and cycle rides.


Many walks can be taken straight from the door to Grassington, Kettlewell, Arncliffe, Malham and the Dales Way itself. For cyclists, as well as numerous off road trails via bridle ways, Kilnsey is on the Tour de France, Tour de Yorkshire and World Championship routes, going straight past the barn.


Visit Malham with it’s famous Cove and Gordale Scar, Wensleydale for Middleham Castle, the Wensleydale Creamery and the Wensleydale Railway, Nidderdale for How Stean Gorge, Brimham Rocks and Pateley Bridge.


Ribblehead Viaduct and the dramatic Settle Carlisle Railway, Percival Hall and Gardens, Bolton Abbey Estate, Embsay Steam Railway and Skipton Castle, Bolton Castle, Fountains Abbey, Ripon Cathedral,  Middleham Castle, the Worth Valley Railway and Howarth Bronte Trail are all within striking distance.


The nearby market town of Skipton has a famous castle, a lively market, excellent shopping, pubs and restaurants, canal trips, an 18 hole golf course and Aireville Park, with it’s swimming pool, Pitch and Putt and children’s play areas.


Not forgetting Grassington, a lively small town considered the jewel of Wharfedale, only a 10 minute drive from the barn and the bustling village of Kettlewell, just 5 minutes around the corner, whilst the hamlets of Arncliffe and Litton in Littondale are also a short distance from Skirfare Barn.


Even closer is the Kilnsey Trout Farm, with fishing, children’s Adventure Trail and playground, gift shop and cafe, the Kilnsey Trekking and Riding Centre in Conistone, and of course the famous Tennant Arms Hotel, where fishing permits can be purchased. The choices are endless.
