Getting around

Having a car is the easiest way to get around but there is a local bus (No.581) takes you from Cowan Bridge to Kirkby Lonsdale to the west or Ingleton and Settle to the east. And then you can take a ride on the famous Settle to Carlisle railway line: one of the most beautiful rail journeys in the country (personally I would recommend the Settle to Appleby stretch as the best).
