    • “We enjoyed a five day stay visiting the Lakes district , Hawes market ( Tuesday ) in the Dales and Leeds by train ( all just one hour away ) . Walked through the beautiful market town of Settle and found a lovely heated indoor swimming pool who had a full program of well priced water aerobics classes -- highly recommend . Owners are lovely people who are not only very proud of their cottage but also of their town and North Yorkshire generally -- will return one day and will be recommending to our Australian friends -- we found a gem !!”

    • “As soon as we walked in the door and entered the farmhouse kitchen we felt straight at home in this lovely Dales cottage. Perfect for either one or two.couples who can cope with the split level lay out. Admitted there is no garden but who needs one when there are such lovely walks and places to visit nearby. We had no problem with the shower, there was no chipped crockery and a nice set of pans if needed. Surprisingly quiet too, even though not far from the road into Settle Anna who lives round the corner and there to help if needed has thought of everything, including herbs, oil,salt,vinegar, tea, coffee, sugar, hot chcolate, milk etc.....more than any other cottage we have stayed in. Wish we could wrap it up and take back home to the village where we come from.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This cottage had everything we wanted as well as a few surprises to make this a memorable stay. Set in the heart of one of the most beautiful areas in the country, Belle Hill is perfectly sited to explore the local hills and dales. After a long walk, the under-floor heating and hot showers were just what the doctor ordered. The pub two doors down was another winner, very welcoming staff and good beer from local breweries. The owners, Anna & Richard, were very friendly and their recommendations of the best walks and pubs in the area were spot on every time. We'll definitely be coming back.”

About the location


Settle 1 mile; Malham 6 miles; Skipton 16 miles.

This delightful Ribblesdale village lies below a limestone scar (part of the Craven fault) and just across the river from the bustling market town of Settle. It’s an incredibly pretty place with sturdy houses and cottages, many dating back to the 17th century as the ‘date stones’ over their doorways will confirm. Today the village is still centred around the beautiful St Alkelda’s church, which dates back to the 12th century and the well-known landmark of the domed chapel at the famous Giggleswick School, which dominates the village skyline. Giggleswick itself has two pubs, whilst the wide ranging amenities of the nearby market town of Settle are within easy walking distance. Further afield is the town of Ingleton with its splendid waterfall walk and of course (for the serious walker) the Three Peaks are nearby.
