THE LOCAL AREA

BANK NEWTON BREAKS

Our properties are located in the Yorkshire countryside; two miles outside of Gargrave. There are plenty of things to do in the local area, as well as all the essential amenities to make your stay comfortable. 

A SMALL SELECTION OF THINGS TO DO

WALKING AND CYCLING

The Yorkshire Dales are right on our doorstep...making our properties a perfect base for keen walkers, hikers and cyclists.

You could conquer the Yorkshire 3 peaks (in one go, or tackle them one at a time) or take a gentle stroll along the Leeds - Liverpool canal towpath.

The area is very popular with road cyclists and mountain bikers alike and there are plenty of routes to discover in the immediate area. Gisburn Forest (12 miles away) offers some great, challenging trails for mountain bikers.

SKIPTON MARKET & SHOPS

Skipton has a fantastic market on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The High Street is lined with a wide variety of stalls which give the town centre a real buzz. There are also lots of other interesting shops - including high street brands and independent stores. And if you find shopping thirsty work, there's no shortage of cafes and pubs. 

SETTLE TO CARLISLE RAILWAY

The famous Settle to Carlisle railway line is within easy reach of our properties (Settle is approximately 10 miles away). 

Take a trip over the incredible Ribblehead viaduct (pictured) - taking in views of the 3 peaks and the beautiful scenery along the route.

SPA & RELAXATION

The Coniston Hotel at Coniston Cold (just 5 miles from our properties) has a beautiful spa with leisure facilities. If you fancy a day of relaxation in their thermal suite, take a look at what they have to offer.
