An extraordinary historic house and museum in Settle, nestled in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales

Built in 1679, The Folly is one of the Yorkshire Dales’ only Grade I listed buildings. It started life as a gentleman’s residence, but The Folly has also been a farm, a lodging house, a holiday let and even a fish and chip shop.
