Fell Beck In Burnsall

Burnsall, Skipton, Yorkshire, Country village

Fell Beck is perfectly located in the village of Burnsall, arguably the prettiest village in Wharfedale. The cottage nestles at the edge of the village and enjoys dual aspect views of the adjacent beck and fell beyond and the village green with its handsome 16th century stone bridge straddling the River Wharfe. The river shallows and widens here and, in Summer, is a tempting place for a cooling paddle after a day's walking.

There is a small paved sitting out area at the front of the cottage with garden furniture where you can enjoy breakfast in the sun while listening to the babbling beck in front of you and gazing at the sheep on the fell beyond.

Enjoy the large village green with its maypole and, next to the bridge, is the famous Red Lion pub, which offers a fantastic pint by the river and extremely good food, largely locally produced.

The village also boasts the ancient St Wilfred's church, a 16th century primary school and, unusually nowadays, a village shop and extremely good tea room. The village is on the Dales Way and there are many lovely walks from the doorstep, including river walks in both directions to Grassington via Hebden or to Appletreewick, which has two pubs to choose from.
