Situated in the heart of the famous Three Peaks area of the Yorkshire Dales, Helwith Bridge is a tiny hamlet made up of traditional dwellings and a village pub. Set beside the tranquil waters of the River Ribble, 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 to Carlisle Railway passes through the hamlet and has some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Close by is 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 village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale contains a lovely Norman church, a village shop and two pubs. 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.

A very well situated property for all the major attractions of the district. The open fire in the sitting room is sublime.
Mr Dawson, Bristol, March 2013
The Cottage was very well equipped and furnished. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom with a newly fitted shower was lovely. The river view and Pen y Ghent views were beautiful. Good location for all 3 peaks and Malham Cove walks.
Owners really helpful and easy to contact. Dog friendly garden.
