The Golden Lion at Settle takes pride of place right in the heart of the bustling traditional market town of Settle. Simply look around you and you’ll be greeted by a rich tapestry of lush green hills in the foothills of the Pennines.
From The Golden Lion at Settle you can explore some of the most breathtaking scenery North Yorkshire has to offer on foot, making it an absolute paradise for walkers. For those of you who are feeling energetic and want to feel like you’ve really achieved something during your stay, you can take on the 3 Peaks Challenge. Or if you fancy a long distance walk you can follow in Wainwright’s steps and complete the Pennine Journey – a challenging circular walk, 247 miles long!
Settle itself is a bustling market town which really comes alive on Tuesdays, when the weekly market takes place, attracting traders from far and wide. Quaint little shops invite you in with their windows filled with all kinds of knick-knacks and homemade goods. And, if after a long day browsing you’re in need of a little light refreshment, you’ll find a warming cup of Yorkshire tea or coffee back at The Golden Lion.
For a taste of local history, Settle Folly and the Museum of North Craven Life can be found just on the main street. Or head a little further out of town to discover a wealth of tourist attractions in the area, with the nearby White Scar Caves and Castleberg Crag being two of the most popular to visit during your stay.
