Stainforth is a pretty village which nestles into the side of a fell, with a beck (crossed via stepping stones), a green and a traditional Dales pub, all worth seeing. Settle (five minutes drive), is a lovely, traditional market town, with shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants as well as a golf course and swimming pool.

Local places of interest include Stainforth Foss, a picturesque waterfall on the river Ribble, just a walk across the fields from the barn, where the salmon leap on their journey upstream to spawn.
