Guest Reviews


    • “Ideal location”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Around 200 yards from Settle Town Centre and with adjacent car parking, the location could not be better. The property is ideal for two people with good cooking facilities, a modern bathroom and and a comfortable bed. The steps down to the property are a little steep and uneven and the adjacent steep slope also means that little sunlight gets into the property. At times the wifi signal is poor and the speed slow. But for those using the cottage as a base for seeing the beautiful surrounding countryside these will be minor inconveniences. We hope to return.”

    • “Excellent service. Home was top class but steps into home were difficult for my wife. The home itself was top class. Location and amenities were really good. Food in Settle was great. Steep steps into home should be emphasised more in brochure.”

    • “The cottage was very welcoming and set up with essential provisions for our arrival after a long journey (milk, biscuits, etc.), which was very much appreciated. The cottage was very snug and cosy, and perfect for two. It was so cosy, I could have stayed there forever! Having the wifi was very useful when planning the next day's activities. The cottage was perfectly situated in central Settle, but was tucked away from the main road so it was very quiet. The cottage was very close to a good moor walk so you didn't have to go far to experience the lovely scenary. The Talbot Arms was about 200m away and served good beer and food. The train station was a 5 min walk away if travelling on the Settle-Carlisle railway. The local bakery made excellent pies and cakes! Settle was a great base from which to explore the area. Would not hesitate to go back!”

    • “We are a mature couple, and we were looking for well-maintained accommodation for two people. It needed to be close to good walking but also with access to buses, trains, shops & restaurants. Folly's End met all the criteria perfectly.”

    • “Comfortable cottage in a great location.”

    Mrs Palin, Nottingham, September 2015

    • “Folly's End was in an excellent location for touring the Dales in Settle via bus and train routes. The cottage was on the ground floor and all facilities were provided. We particularly appreciated the gas fire which warmed the room pretty quickly. There was plenty of tourist information and recommendations inside the property. We found the price to be reasonable and we were made very welcome by the owners.”

    Rev Floyd, Chippenham, May 2015

    • “Loved the cottage and its location. Felt very welcome by the owners. Settle is a lovely village, and we wished we had stayed longer. Would love to go back to Folly's End Cottage one day for another holiday.”

    Mrs West, Portland, November 2014

    • “The cottage was excellent and the location could not have been better. Loads of info regarding walks at the cottage. Settle was lovely and so were the people, we could not have had a better holiday or accommodation. Lovely walks close by and local pubs and restaurants were good. Settle/Carlisle railway was a fab' day out! Marvellous holiday, nothing could have been better. We loved it! Would highly recommend!”

About the location


Malham 6 miles; Skipton 17 miles; Kendal 25 miles.

The bustling market town of Settle lies at the south west rim of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, nestled beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - a region of scars, cliffs, caves and potholes - amongst some of the most picturesque scenery in North Yorkshire. Tuesday is market day in Settle, when the square is filled with stalls offering a wide variety of crafts and goods. The market place is surrounded by local businesses, the centre being dominated by the Shambles, an historic 3-storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. There is a good selection of restaurants and pubs and a public swimming pool. The Victoria Hall has entertainment and other activities such as folk nights throughout the year. The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Skipton and Malham. Settle is in the midst of excellent walking country and is a good base for touring the Dales, the Lake District and the Forest of Bowland.
