The Property

Horton-in-Ribblesdale 0.5 miles. A deceptively spacious stone-built mid-terraced property, formerly a quarry worker’s house, just a short walk from the centre of Horton-in-Ribblesdale. Recently refurbished with charm and character, West View Cottage has an ESSE range cooker in the kitchen and multi-fuel stove in the sitting room ensuring a warm welcome at any time of year. A great property from which to explore the surrounding Three Peaks area, with well-marked footpaths leading from Horton over both Pen-y-Ghent and Ingleborough - two mountains with incredible views from the summit. For the less energetic, there are lots of other gentle walks around the village! Altogether a great scenic base for a Dales holiday.

About the location

HORTON-IN-RIBBLESDALE

Settle 6 miles; Ingleton 10 miles.

This beautiful Ribblesdale village sits within the National Park and provides home to lots of pretty traditional Dales buildings, a lovely Norman church and two pubs. 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-Carlisle Railway passes through the village and passes some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. 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 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.
