Is this Wharfedale village the prettiest in Yorkshire?

The Yorkshire Dales village of Burnsall lies on a bend of the River Wharfe surrounded by a spectacular circle of fells and is only a couple miles away from the popular tourist destination of Grassington.

The village is overlooked by Burnsall Fell and Simon’s Seat and has become a popular spot with walkers looking to explore the surrounding area. You can take a walk from Burnsall to nearby Linton Falls or to the Grade II listed Parcevall Hall and Gardens near the village of Appletreewick.

The 84-mile Dales Way which runs from Ilkley to Bowness in the Lake District passes right through the centre of Burnsall with the route crossing over the Victorian five-arch bridge by the village green.

For cyclists, The Way of the Roses is a 170 mile route that runs coast to coast from Morecambe to Bridlington and also passes through this pretty Wharfedale village.

It’s easy to see why a recent ONS survey found that the Craven District is the happiest place to live in the UK, although there are barely a hundred or so households that are lucky enough to live in this quaint location.
