Best place to stay for weekend wedding

We've got a wedding to attend at All saints church Broughton and afterwards a reception at Bank Newtown,not until next year but we've been told we'll need to book accommodation very well in advance due to the limited availability vs. popularity of the area. I haven't been to Yorkshire before other than York and Harrogate, we're looking to make a long weekend of this so where would the best place be to base ourselves, to allow for a day or 2 sampling some of the highlights of the Dales...? We thought maybe Skipton (just looking at google maps) as it would allow us access to a variety of restaurants in the evening without need of a car, but if anyone has any recommendations I'd be glad to hear...? Thanks

The Tempest Arms is lovely and does rooms. Good base to explore during the day and then eat at the Tempest in the evening - not sure if that is what you are after or if you want to try different places?

The Angel at Hetton is also worth a look - but again it is a rural location so you'd need to eat at the Angel if you didn't want to use your car in the evening.

Both places do very good food.

If you are out and about during the day, the Bull at Broughton does a great lunch (doesn't do rooms). It's part of the excellent small chain of Ribble Valley Inns.

Agree with Morgana. All great places. Another is the Mason's Arms in Gargrave which may be a bit cheaper. But like you say, if you want a choice of places in the evening, then Skipton would be better.
