The pretty village of Kettlewell is famous with walkers who like to stop rewind those tired muscles as they tackle the well-known Dales Way. This lovely village is a tranquil retreat of charming 17th and 18th century stone cottages with its narrow meandering streets, and babbling river running through the village centre. There are two tearooms, three pubs and a bistro in the village, so all your culinary needs will be very well catered for. Bradd Cottage is conveniently placed next door to the Village Store which is well stocked and also sells hot beverages and sandwiches. Kettlewell is a haven for walkers and cyclists with its magnificent backdrop of steep rugged crags that tower over the village. Kettlewell also attracts thousands of visitors who may simply wish to ‘escape to the country’, and enjoy the ambience of this picturesque part of Yorkshire.
The bustling town of Skipton is just 12 miles away, and offers visitors a wide array of attractions with its well preserved Norman castle, The Leeds and Liverpool canal meanders its way along the town, and there is a good mix of tearooms, ancient inns, restaurants and modern shops. For the keen cyclists amongst you there is The Yorkshire Dales Cycle Way. This 130 mile circular route would need prior planning, and would take the average cyclists six days to complete, however, a wonderful way to explore the area. The Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam railway allows those visitors who enjoy a more relaxing form of transport to sit back and dream as they meander their way through the hills and dales of Yorkshire.
However you chose to spend your time in Yorkshire, you are sure to enjoy the homely welcome that Bradd Cottage has to offer.
