HIGH & LOW BENTHAM
Bentham is a traditional Yorkshire market town rather than a tourist
centre. Access is easy from the M6 and A65. It is an ideal centre
for exploration of lovely scenery and a starting point for many fine
walks, cycle rides, pony treks and excursions by car.
Just to the north lies the Yorkshire Dales National Park with the
three peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Penyghent visible from
many places in and around the town.
The Forest of Bowland, designated an area of outstanding natural
beauty, stretches away to the south while in a north-westerly direction,
less than hour's drive away, is Lake Windermere and all the natural
beauty of the Lake District.
