Area High above the traditional Yorkshire market town of Bentham sits the small settlement of Fourstones. Situated by the so-called Great Stone - apparently a large boulder, deposited during the last Ice Age that has since become a distinctive feature of the landscape - this attractive village is on the boundary between Lancashire and Yorkshire. From this large rock visitors can see the spectacular views over the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland - all three of these areas offer fabulous walking and cycling opportunities for all levels of fitness. The town of Bentham has a range of pubs and restaurants serving fine beers and good food and is within easy driving distance. This charming little town also boasts a wide variety of shops and a Post Office.
Region From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

A beautifully restored farm building with spectacular views across the dales. It was very secluded with only the cows, sheep and bird life for company. A great location for exploring the area and a fantastic base to return to.
We found the Farmhouse to be a beautiful cottage in amazing surroundings. The property was within easy reach of places of interest. We had a lovely holiday.

A beautiful, well maintained house in a beautiful location, with easy access to some of the most dramatic Dales' scenery, as well as to town and village.
The views were outstanding in a great location. The cottage was modern, clean and comfortable, well laid out and generally well equipped.
The cottage was a real 'away from it all' holiday, it was beautifully clean and very spacious with views that will be hard to beat in any future holiday cottage. Walking in the area was really good and we couldn't have asked for a better holiday.
Great property with fantastic views, very secluded yet very accessible to all local amenities.
Cottage was exactly as described, no problems whatsoever! Everything we needed and everything spotlessly clean! Bedding lovely and fresh. All the details and facts that we could possibly need were provided in the house in form of printouts etc. Would recommend this cottage to anybody!
Very remote and very quiet. A beautiful setting for a holiday.
We loved the peaceful surroundings at the farmhouse and although very spacious bright it still maintained cosiness. It was nice to arrive to a few basic essentials and flowers. The farmhouse was very well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Fabulous holiday!
We found the property to be very well appointed; a rather nice mix of the new and the 'olde worlde' traditional. A very cosy house with plenty of room to move around yet small enough to have real charcater. Great garden with nice outlook to surrounding countryside.
The stunning views and it was very restful.
We enjoyed our holiday in this peaceful and beautiful position.
