The property

An outstanding stone-built, semi-detached former stable block on the rural outskirts of the picturesque village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale in magnificent Three Peaks Country.

Beautifully restored with quality fixtures and fittings, this Horton-in-Ribblesdale cottage combines original features with modern comforts to provide first-class accommodation in a peaceful, rural location.

This is one of our finest Dales cottages, with character and charm throughout, including the original oak beams, exposed stonework and much more.

Set over three floors, the ground floor offers a beautiful kitchen and dining area.

Full of immense character and charm, with a lovely window seat, the room has been designed seamlessly round the original stalls, a wonderful and somewhat different feature.

The first floor includes the spacious sitting room with feature fireplace with a gas woodburner-effect fire.

With feature exposed stonework, the original beehive oven and windows to both sides, one looking out across the church and cemetery and the front looking out towards magnificent views of Pen-Y-Ghent, this is a lovely room to sit back and soak up the wonderful atmosphere of country living.

The second floor of this Horton-in-Ribblesdale cottage consists of a spacious master bedroom, a twin and a third room set up as a useful snug with sofa bed to accommodate a fifth guest or as somewhere to relax, have a coffee and read a good book.

Outside this Horton-in-Ribblesdale cottage there is a small area to sit, listen to the beck winding its way past, and take in the lovely views.

Various walks can be enjoyed from the doorstep of this Horton-in-Ribblesdale cottage, on the Pennine Way and in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, while the more energetic visitor can 'clock in' at the village's Pen-y-Ghent cafe and take on the challenge of the Three Peaks walk!

A wonderful Horton-in-Ribblesdale cottage for a much-deserved break in the Yorkshire Dales.

Guest Reviews


    • “The cottage was very warm and cosy, which it needed to be as we had snow on our first night, and it is in a beautiful location. It was in a great position for local walks. The different levels and the churchyard outside the rear windows added to its unique character. The bedrooms bathroom and sitting room were well appointed and the free WiFi was great as three of our group could not get a mobile signal but were able to FaceTime family over the weekend. I would recommend for friends or a family holiday, although we were only there for a weekend there is a lot to do in the local area so would love to have been able to stay for longer. The owners were very helpful when contacted.”

    Mrs Thackeray, Liverpool, November 2015

    • “The Stables is a fantastic cottage, it was much larger than expected, very well equipped and in a superb location for walking in the Yorkshire 3 Peaks.”

    Mr Camp, Congleton, October 2015

    • “The cottage was fantastic, the surrounding area was beautiful and it would make an ideal base for walkers as the three peaks are close by.”

    Mr Baldwin, Gillingham, August 2015

    • “The cottage was so roomy, our two sons are 21 and 15 and are very tall, so having so much space was great. It was very comfortable and the little extras were so welcome. The views of the hills were beautiful and because it was so comfortable we didn't mind when we had to stay in because of the rain.”

    Mrs Goddard, Norwich, July 2015

    • “This cottage was perfectly located and has a real warm feeling about it. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.”

    Ms Wright, Birmingham, July 2015

    • “Fab, would stay there again, a home from home in a great location.”

    Mr Chruszcz, Goole, December 2014

    • “The standard of the cottage was lovely, furnished to a very high standard and had lots of beautiful finishing touches. I have never been away in cottage on my own before with friends and I did not need to bring a thing with me other than wine! The bedrooms were lovely, the beds were so comfy and the bathroom was huge with a fabulous bath. The kitchen and the living room were also great and we literally did not want to leave when the end of our stay came! Loved it so much! Thank you for a fab stay!”

    Miss Finnegan, Wakefield, December 2014

    • “The stables is a very nice place. The owner was very helpful and whenever we needed anything they were right on it. Great cottage in a great location.”

    Mr Higgins, London, November 2014

    • “What a great place! A real home from home with everything you need for a great holiday away from it all. Walking is literally on your door step with plenty to do. The dog loved the steam across the way (we couldn't keep him out) and was very useful to get him clean after a day's walk. Would definitely come again and highly recommend this cottage to all.”

    Mr Stacey, Doncaster, October 2014

    • “A stunning, cosy little rustic cottage tucked away in the Dales. A perfect base for exploring the surrounding countryside. The cottage is to a very high standard. We've stayed in a lot of different cottages but this has to be one of the best. Its low beams and quirky layout adds to the rustic feel. We chose this property as we wanted to take our dogs on holiday with us. Although this is a pet friendly cottage, the cleanliness is to a very high standard. Would highly recommend this cottage!”

    Miss Ward, Pontefract, October 2014

    • “A very homely feel, warm and comfortable. Everything you could want was provided and more.”

    Miss Beckett, Colne, October 2014

    • “The cottage and owners were very welcoming.”

    Mrs Popplestone, Sandhurst, September 2014

About the location


Settle 6 miles; Ingleton 10 miles.

This beautiful Ribblesdale village sits within the National Park and provides home to lots of pretty traditional Dales buildings, a lovely Norman church and two pubs. The surrounding countryside is magnificent, offering the ideal location for fell walking, with the famous Three Peaks Walk, Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough offering some of the most challenging walks in the country. The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway passes through the village and passes some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. The Ribblehead viaduct, completed in 1870 is a magnificent structure and the sight of a steam train passing across the top is one not to be missed. The nearby market town of Settle offers a wide variety of pubs and restaurants whilst the market square is a real delight featuring the Shambles, an historic 3-storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. The Victoria Hall is a cinema at weekends (Fri & Sat) and offers other activities such as folk nights throughout the year. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Skipton and Malham and the delightful villages of Ingleton and Hawes.
