Could be good here, I might be tempted this year.
Skipton is wonderful especially on market day. The fish and chips in Skipton are to die for, but don't take a MoHo into town there would be nowhere to put it.
There's a bus stop .................. and an Aldi - perfect
We have done the rail trip over the top from Skipton and you only need a return ticket to Appleby (avoid the gypsy horse fair in June) By Appleby you have seen all the best bits of the spectacular line and Appleby has some nice pubs and cafes to wait in for the train back.
It depends what you class as nearby? Knight Stainforth Hall is about 2 miles north of Settle, and has a pleasant walk all along the river, the famous Stainforth Foss is on the site and is a sight to behold when the salmon are jumping. Haven’t been for a number of years but used to stay often, walk down taxi back!
