Hi, we're looking for charming rustic inn surrounded by dramatic Dales scenery for walking/strolling in the week before Christmas. Coming by train from Leeds. Appletreewick looks fab but v limited buses and no village as such, so bit isolated? Burnsall and Grassington look great: which is best for stunning scenery, local atmospshere/little shops & cafes, hilly riverside walking and plenty of farm animals?! Or is winter bus access not much better?
Have scoured various options and hard to choose so looking for personal recommendations now! Also looked at Heriotts by the canal in Skipton - is the immediate scenery on a par with the above villages?
