  • "This was a fabulous place to stay."

    Very warm and clean, and everything was very high quality which made our stay extreme comfortable.

  • "Thank you for a lovely stay at Prospect House, the property was ideal for our needs and very comfortable to relax in."

    We loved the big garden which was perfect for our dog and there was plenty to do nearby and further afield. Feedback - we all tried to work the microwave but it seemed to have a mind of it's own so we failed on that front! the Aga was lovely but we had to leave the windows and doors open as it was too hot, I'm sure it would be nice in the winter. And as per previous review water was puddling on the floor of the shower room so hopefully someone can look at that before it becomes a problem. Overall we loved the cottage and loved the village and hope to be back one day. Thank you!

  • "Wonderful cottage."

    Most pleased for the milk etc.. that was there on arrival. One point to note - the bath/shower needs a shower curtain, as a lot of water spilt onto the floor. This is causing damage to the lounge ceiling.

  • "Once again we had a really nice stay in Prospect house, we've been a few times now."

    There are lots of fantastic walks without needing the car, the village store is well stocked and there was also as usual a really generous welcome pack. It is a very warm and comfortable house and we love staying there.

  • "A wonderful comfortable house."

    Lovely homely feel with great decoration, comfy beds. Great location. Would definitely recommend and revisit. Points to note: The arga was hard to turn down and made the kitchen very hot. A shame that the check out time is so early on a Sunday morning. It meant we had to be up and out. We would have been happy to clean more than we did if we could have access to the house after our walk. When you rent a place for the weekend you kind of want it for the weekend. Just a thought.

  • "Austwick & Prospect House are a good combination for a relaxing break."

    There is nothing better after a long walk in the surrounding Dales to come back to the warm homely feel of Prospect House. The village has the benefit of a well renowned pub & restaurant & also a shop/post office. We have stayed at prospect house numerous times & intend to return.

  • "The cottage really has the wow factor and the following is intended as feedback only and is not a complaint."

    It would have been nice if some hints and tips could have been left for us. We had to fathom out how to use the oven in the Aga, for instance, and the no doubt very clever microwave was an absolute nightmare to fathom out (we gave up on the frustrating instruction book) All we wanted to do was heat ready meals but it took ages to fathom out how to do such a simple task. Also had to ring to find out how to connect to the Wi-Fi. If there had been instructions that the password was on the back of the router, we wouldn't have had to bother the owner. All in all though these were minor frustrations and we wish we could have stayed another week.

  • "Thank you so much for another lovely."

    My daughters joined me for the first weekend and loved Prospect House as much as I do, vowing to return with their own families. The location is perfect for me: many different walks from the house, 2 places to 'eat out', a delightful village shop and post office, an authentic eco shop... and much more. No need to use the car at all!

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Prospect House."

    It's a spacious, well equipped and tastefully furnished house, in the centre of one of our favourite villages in the Dales. Lots of walks on the doorstep, a great pub with a French chef, and an upmarket restaurant at The Traddock. We would definitely come again. Everything was perfect, except we did struggle with the heating system, and it would have been useful to have some clearer instructions to help with this.

  • "The evidence speaks for itself as this was our third visit to Prospect House & for us it feels like our place to relax & unwind, it may not be for everyone but it suits us & we always look forward to returning, Its a combination of the warm comfy home from home feeling of Prospect House as much as its quiet village location with lovely walks & scenery giving you a feeling of isolation but having the benefit of only being a short distance away from larger towns & attractions."

    The provisions left for us were really appreciated, thank you. We enjoyed trying to get to grips with the Aga and loved the 'toaster' The garden is fantastic, very secure for our dog. We had a great stay and are looking to book again. We have already recommended it to family and friends.

  • "What a fantastic property!"

    We booked Prospect House on the way back from a trip to Scotland. It didn’t disappoint, it was cosy, comfortable and most importantly welcoming! The host kindly left us some treats and basics which were appreciated by all the family. Great location in the Dales and Ingleton Falls which is a beautiful walk whatever the weather. We will be back

  • "This was the second visit to Prospect House this year which shows how much we love the house & its location."

    Because we had already visited then we knew what to expect & we weren't disappointed, the house was spotlessly clean & well presented. The weather was a bit mixed but we managed to get some walking done in the area, the walk to Clapham was enjoyable & very scenic & tiring to us fair weather hikers so it was lovely to get back to the warm inviting atmosphere of Prospect House. We intend to revisit & are already looking at dates for next year.

  • "The house was beautiful and extremely restful."

    Perfect location to detox from work demands and top up the personal positivity. With no car it can be tricky finding a peaceful place, but this covered it for us and was well served by local buses. Being adjacent to the green was lovely too and very close to one of the best pubs in Yorkshire. As for the Aga, no words to describe my delight in cooking. In fact we ate out much less as Aga cooking is the best way to cook. The rooms are well proportioned and very well fitted out, the kitchen has everything and the living room is a haven for reading and relaxation. A lovely unexpected study area was a treat, please don't ever change it. One thing no downstairs loo, this wasn't a problem for us and was a pleasure to go up the beautiful staircase with an amazing view but be mindful if stairs are an issue. We shall be back next year for sure

    We were all so comfortable. We were very lucky with the weather and so made use of the garden, we were visited by the horses in the field. The village shop just across the road was fantastic. Even though its roadside parking that was never an issue, lots of spaces. After a long journey to arrive to find lovely treats in the kitchen was just special. We will most certainly stay again.

    The lovely secure south facing garden is great on a sunny day & a safe environment for your four legged friend with two friendly horses just over the wall. Everything you need is provided for you for your stay including a four oven AGA which you will soon learn to master. Parking was always available just outside the front door which was great for unloading & loading your car. There are also numerous lovely walks in all directions from the front door with amazing views. Austwick village is very quiet & a magnet for walkers, it has a pub which was closed whilst we were their due to Covid & also a useful Post Office come shop & off license but Settle is only a few miles down the road which has a co op. If you are a dark sky's fan then you're in luck as there are no street lights. We honestly really enjoyed our stay & truly intend to revisit Prospect House again.

The property

If you are looking for a characterful and beautifully appointed cottage in the village of Austwick, one of the most endearing locations in the Yorkshire region, then look no further than Prospect House.

With three bedrooms, captivating views and a plethora of walking opportunities, this exceptional self-catering cottage is perfect for families seeking a relaxing break or for avid ramblers to enjoy the landscapes of open moorland and the network of limestone pavements and caves within the area.

Admire scenery of the honeypot village before pushing open the front door to discover the living room, where the large woodburning stove set within the handmade brick reveal acts as the focal point of this room.

Light up the fire at the end of a bracing day on the moorland, the spacious sofas inviting you to kicking back and relax, as you delve into a book or catch up on the latest box set on the TV.

Joining this space is the dining table with seating for six; however, it can be extended to seat up to eight people, should you have guests over for dinner and drinks, making a wonderful social space to enjoy the company of your loved ones.

Take the door and emerge into the kitchen, where characterful slate flooring is set beneath the impressive AGA cooker, which takes centre stage before all of the quality appliances arranged in a traditional assortment, with a wonderful island unit providing plenty of preparation space.

Climb the staircase to find a huge picture window affording stunning views over the garden and beyond before finding the three bedrooms and the family bathroom, featuring a shower over bath.

Two of the bedrooms boast sumptuous double beds, endearing artwork and good storage space, as well as sash windows offering idyllic views to wake up to each morning, whilst the third and final bedroom boasts twin beds and is perfect for friends or children to catch their rest as the evening draws to a close.

Each morning, look forward to taking your morning cup of tea out onto the garden to savour the views across the countryside, with the spacious lawn allowing your canine companion and children to play with a beautiful backdrop.

If you can tear yourself away from the cottage, meander through the quaint village, where you will find a plethora of amenities, including a shop and a pub, whilst a larger selection of places to eat, drink and shop can be found in the market town of Settle, located slightly further afield, but well-worth the drive.

Avid ramblers can don their walking boots and endeavour on exploring the Yorkshire Dales National Park, home to a plethora of walks including the challenging Three Peaks, the Ingleborough Estate Nature Trail and a trek up Malham Cove to uncover the limestone amphitheatre, waterfall and valley views.

Other outdoor action can be enjoyed within the surrounding area too, including plenty of cycling opportunities, golfing at the nearby Settle Golf Club and heading underground to explore the caves of White Scar, Ingleborough and Jubliee, families of all ages will enjoy this activity!

Enjoy a leisurely afternoon activity by hopping on board the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway to enjoy the breath-taking scenery or pay a visit to the Ingleton Waterfalls to stroll along the 4-mile route whilst enjoying the variety of plant life and geological features.

If you are feeling really adventurous, enjoy a scenic road trip through the National Park to visit the highest pub in Britain, the Tan Hill Inn or venture to the market town of Skipton, where you can visit the grand 11th Century Skipton Castle before treating yourself with a pamper day at the Long Ashes Leisure Club & Pure Spa.

With so much to see and do, secure your stay at Prospect House and look forward to an action-packed getaway.

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.
