Kettlewell to Starbotton
Walk 5- A family walk - Kettlewell to Starbotton- 4.5 miles - 3 hours Back to Upper Wharfedale Page
From Kettlewell car park proceed across the road bridge. Turn right through the left hand gate and follow the stony farm track to the right climbing slightly uphill alongside a wall. The track zig -zags and climbs steeply and after a level section emerges at Moor Top Farm (now an outward bound centre). Enter the farmyard and proceed to the left of the farm house and through a field. After a gate bear right looking for opening in wall and cross a further field diagonally. Pass through a gate and the path starts to descend towards Starbotton through woods (look for Orchids on bank in May/June).
If taking the direct route back to Kettlewell follow distinct path on the right hand river bank. The return walk is easy emerging back at the road bridge and the carpark
The facilities in Kettlewell are excellent including 3 pubs Bluebell, Racehorse and Kings head and at least 2 tea rooms
