Austwick is a small village approximately 4 miles from Eldroth. Known for cattle farming, the area around Austwick is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, perfect for fell walkers, cavers, cyclists and those simply seeking the peace and beauty of the idyllic landscape. The village has a shop, the Parish Church of the Epiphany and a traditional Yorkshire pub with award-winning food, the Gamecock Inn.


Clapham is a picturesque village, just under 5 miles from Eldroth. At its centre runs Clapham Beck which starts life high on the slopes of Ingleborough. It plunges deep underground, emerging to run down into the lake, over a waterfall and through the village, passing beneath four bridges. The village has a post office and shop, café, pub and a busy vintage shop.


Giggleswick village is situated on the banks of the River Ribble near to the town of Settle, and has views of Pen-y-Ghent and Ingleborough, with Giggleswick Scar close by. Take in the colour-washed fronts of the 17th Century buildings, the Tithe Barn and the village stocks as well as visiting St. Alkelda’s Church built in the 15th Century.


Feizor is a small village just off the A65 between Settle and Austwick; famous for its fine limestone scenery. The village is overlooked by the escarpments and cliffs of Pot Scar beyond which lies Smearsett Scar and nearby is Giggleswick Scar – running along the line of the Craven Fault. It has a very popular licensed tearoom at Home Barn known as Elaine’s Tearoom. It’s just the job, before or after, your walk around the area.
