A peaceful, historic venue for your retreat, workshop, exhibition or meeting, and a recently renovated camping barn for overnight stays.

Welcome to Airton Meeting House and Barn

Airton Friends’ Meeting House is situated in the quiet village of Airton in central Malhamdale, 11 miles from Skipton and 7 miles from Settle.  It is on major walking and cycling routes, including the Way of the Roses and the Pennine Way and well placed for visiting the major attractions in the Dales and Three Peaks areas.

The overnight accommodation is well used by Duke of Edinburgh groups, Quaker groups, climbers, cyclists, walkers, holidaymakers and retreat groups.  In addition there are light and airy spaces which can be used flexibly to suit a wide range of activities such as craft events, art and photographic exhibitions, Open Studio events, concerts and performances, lunches, meetings, workshops, elections, parties, retreats and coffee mornings.

  • open all year
  • secure cycle storage
  • basic food supplies available from the Friend in Residence
  • for late arrivals, we will collect your food order from the Farm Shop in the village

    Marvellous improvements since Joint Trusts struggled to maintain the property in the 90s and my car could just about find its own way from Settle to Airton as I kept in touch with the wardens.

    The wonderful improvement works have meant a real renaissance for both the historic Quaker Meeting House and the so-called Barn which is now a comfortable, well-furnished modern venue. It is so incredibly peaceful there. What a tonic for our often shredded nerves.
