  • "This is a lovely ground floor flat, very clean and comfortable with everything you nee for your holiday."

    I love the fact that the lounge has patio doors with views right across the valley. Austwick is a very pretty village with loads of walks from the doorstep, and easy access to the Dales, Lakes, and forest of Bowland. Very friendly pub serving excellent food and a well stocked village shop. Highly recommended.

  • "Fantastic location and very comfortable apartment."

    We had a lovely holiday at Orchard Leigh. It was very cold when we arrived as the heating had been turned off, but by next day it heated up and was fine. Lovely modern apartment in a very pretty village, clean, bright, airy and comfortable. Log burner a real treat. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

    Rather cold, only 12 degrees on arrival, and took 3 days to fully warm up. We should have lit the stove earlier! But it was winter... Great walking nearby and lovely pub.

    As we were staying for a fortnight it would have been very useful to be able to use it. Nevertheless we felt that it was a lovely apartment in a lovely area and would like to go back again next year.

  • "A lovely little apartment with a big main bedroom but tiny kitchen (one at a time in there!"

    ) in an absolutely perfect spot for exploring the Dales. 5 miles from Settle, less than 2 miles from Clapham, amazing views and some lovely little local walks. Great pub just 1 minute walk away. Attentive owner who left us some milk in the fridge and a pack of lovely biscuits. Lovely shower with warm underfloor heating. Recommend for couples or, like us, a couple with one teenager. Good value for money.

  • "This is a really lovely holiday apartment."

    Beautifully clean and comfortable, it has everything you could need. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds comfortable, spacious shower room and a generous sized shower. The lounge has patio doors giving a lovely view across the valley, and access to the paved patio. The village pub is a 2 minute walk, serving good food and selling their own patisserie and bread. A well stocked friendly village shop means you don't need to travel far for your shopping. Dozens of walks on the doorstep and plenty of places to visit. Would not hesitate in recommending.

  • "My wife & I visited in October 2020 with our 8 month cockapoo."

    A very clean & well appointed apartment, really cozy for the autumn. No wood supplied for fire but village shop sells bags of logs. The courtyard area has a low wall & if you have a dog you’d need to keep it on a lead, could be hard work if you want to use this area in good weather. The area; I’m a keen walker, I have a copy of Wainwright’s ‘walks in limestone country’, a great guide for the local area & fells. Ingleborough is a good walk from the apartment via Clapham, Ingleborough Cave, Trow Gill & the opening of Gaping Gill, a great day. Many local walks, especially Elaine’s tea rooms in Feizor, easy 45 mins & dog friendly, superb cakes. Austwick beck is down a footpath just past playing fields, 10 min walk & a beautiful spot. Locally the village shop is well stocked, friendly local advice from a very helpful couple. We only went to the Gamecock pub twice, but felt with Covid restrictions they were a bit stressed, why leave the apartment with everything on hand for a comfortable evening.? Definitely would return.

  • "Everything about the appartment was excellent, we were disappointed as to how it was located, it is within a busy little area , doubtless genteel but not quite as secluded as we would have liked, it was difficult to manage our dog's bathroom habits in this location, also you cannot keep the car near your appartment, which is no problem but with us it is where the dog rests when not walking."

    That out of the way it is a lovely position, near an excellent pub, near an also excellent shop and easy access to walks. The food shopping in the area was of the highest standard , in 9 days we only had two meals out as the kitched facilities were truly excellent. and we like to cook. We want to go back to this part of the world, very much, if we couild find a position with more seclusion.

About the location


Settle 5 miles; Ingleton 5 miles; Skipton 20 miles.

Situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this is arguably one of the finest areas for walking in the region. With limestone pavements and scars, caves and open moors, the area has a wealth of natural interest and there are wonderful cycle tracks and walks on the doorstep. Austwick boasts a local pub serving excellent home cooked meals and a country hotel for something a little more special, as well as a shop and Post Office for visitors’ daily requirements. This quiet village is nicely off the beaten track, yet the market towns of Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale, Skipton and Kendal are all within easy driving distance.
