Lovely Seat's lovely seat
Lovely Seat is a fell in the Yorkshire located five kilometres north of Hawes. It is part of the high ground which separates Wensleydale from Swaledale, though is separated from the neighbouring Great Shunner Fell by the Buttertubs pass.

From the pass, it is then a short walk to climb to the summit of Lovely Seat following a fence which helps navigation in bad conditions.

Not only is the summit is topped by a fair size cair, it also includes a large stone built chair, befitting its name.
