The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

Imagine booking a cottage in Giggleswick! Welcome to a delightful Yorkshire village with a really quirky name, a small ancient hamlet in the Yorkshire Dales, just a stone's throw from the market town of Settle.
It's rather a famous place too, boasting an excellent public school where you'll find a beautifully restored, Grade II listed chapel with a unique copper dome and exquisitely decorated interior - entrance is free. Giggleswick itself is a jumble of colour-washed cottages, a 15th Century church, old market cross and a couple of pubs.
For more pubs, restaurants, shops and more, simply walk into Settle. And don't miss a trip on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, crossing the iconic Ribblehead Viaduct with its 24 arches - without doubt one of Britain's most scenic routes through the Dales and Eden Valley.
Expect fantastic walking in and around Giggleswick. First stop Giggleswick Scar, with its caves, cliffs and unusual ebbing and flowing well. Other highlights include the challenging Three Peaks Walk of Ingleborough, Pen-Y-Gent, Whernside, Gordale Scar, Malham Cove and Ingleton Waterfalls. Cycling is another option, as are fishing, horse riding and golf. Or do something different and book a course at the award-winning Yorkshire Dales Falconry Centre and experience close encounters with over fifty birds of prey from around the world. Also close by is the National Nature Reserve at Malham Tarn, protected by the National Trust and home to a wide variety of rare animals and plants.
And remember a stay in a Giggleswick cottage is sure to
encourage lots of laughter and fun for everyone!
