Surrounded by spectacular Yorkshire Dales National Park scenery and nestling in the lower reaches of the Upper Wharfe valley with the river running through, Kilnsey is a delightful village, just less than 4 miles from Grassington and 11 miles from Skipton. The village's most notable feature is Kilnsey Crag, an impressive limestone cliff with a large overhang, popular with walkers and climbers. There is a well-patronised pub within the village and a popular annual agricultural show. The village is in the catchment area for the Skipton Secondary Schools and primary Schools are available at Threshfield and Kettlewell, each less than 5 miles away.
