The Property

A lovely, semi-detached Grade II listed farmhouse in the small village of Feizor, just two miles from the market town of Settle.

A cosy, traditional country retreat, this Settle cottage offers a spacious main lounge with a feature window, a farmhouse style kitchen and three lovely bedrooms, all with old beams and a traditional feel. Outside, relax in the beautiful gardens or enjoy a family ball game in the lawned area just across from the cottage. Enjoy the beautiful Dales scenery and wonderful walks from the doorstep of your cottage near Settle, straight out onto the limestone fells or go on a sightseeing tour of the famous Dales villages of Austwick, Malham and Kettlewell to name but a few. Feizor is an ideal base for a traditional Dales holiday with a delightful village café just moments away from your Settle cottage, ideal for relaxing after a hard day on the local fells.

About the location

FEIZOR

Settle 2 miles; Austwick 2 miles.

Feizor is a small village located between Settle and Austwick in the Yorkshire Dales. The area is famous for its fine limestone scenery, with the village being overlooked by the escarpments and cliffs of Pot Scar, beyond which lies Smearsett Scar. Also nearby is Giggleswick Scar - which runs along the line of the Craven Fault. Situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this is arguably one of the finest areas for walking in the region. With limestone pavements and scars, caves and open moors, the area has a wealth of natural interest and there are wonderful cycle tracks and walks on the doorstep. Nearby Austwick boasts a local pub serving excellent home cooked meals and a country hotel for something a little more special, as well as a shop and post office for visitors’ daily requirements. This quiet village is nicely off the beaten track, yet the market towns of Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale, Skipton and Kendal are all within easy driving distance. A great location to enjoy the Yorkshire Dales.
