About Arncliffe

Arncliffe is the largest of Littondales four villages and is situated on the lovely River Skirfare. It is recorded that Charles Kingsley drew his inspiration for his classic novel 'The Water Babies' from this area, when he stayed at Mallam Tarn House. The River Skirfirth was the river the hero 'Tom' jumped into, when he joined the water babies.

Arncliffe's parish church, the church of St.Oswald, lies in a favoured position close to the river, just a little way from the village. The village itself is spacious and has a variety of attractive properties interspersed around a fine village green. The old village school is a picturesque building, so too is a barn that dates 1677 and Old Cores dates 1650. The countryside all around, even on a winters day, is quite spectacular and there are magnificent views of the village and the lonely surrounding region, from the high road as you leave the village and head towards Fountains Fell. Close-by, is Kilnsey Park and Trout Farm.
