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.

Giggleswick 1 mile. The imaginative and unusual conversion of an old detached stable, has resulted in this charming property of great character. The building’s old oak timbers and exposed stonework provide a wonderful warm and welcoming feel and visitors will love the full length picture windows. The location is superb for walkers with lots of splendid walks amongst fantastic limestone scenery from the doorstep. The village of Giggleswick is a short walk away and the popular market town of Settle within a couple of miles’ drive.

Previous visitors' comments about Holly Lodge:
Loved the area. The cottage was warm and comfortable which was appreciated as the weather was very mixed.
Mrs Winkley, Worksop, May 2013
We enjoyed the property itself and its location. The views from the cottage itself and the fine walks in the area were lovely.
Mr Wingrove, Bedford, March 2013
Isolated but fairly close to main town with adequate facilities, directly backing onto fields, and in the heart of the Dales. Ideally suited to explore both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.
Mr Care, Burgess Hill, October 2012
A very enjoyable stay in a well appointed cottage. We particularly enjoyed the situation and the views. Overall, an excellent holiday.
