Things To Do


Kettlewell is ideally situated for walking from leisurely strolls along the river banks to fell walking up the valley. Several circular routes of varying lengths and difficulty leave the village in all directions. The picturesque long distance walk of the Dalesway passes through the village. A short car journey away is the 3 peaks for a more serious challenge.


Cyclists can also enjoy the open roads and mountain biking is available on the areas many 'green' roads. The rivers provide excellent trout fishing, or paddling in the warm weather. During the summer months Kettlewell is home to the scarecrow festival, and other villages have fetes and shows.
