  • "A very comfortable, well kitted out house with plenty of space for people to spread out."

    Sunny outside seating area was lovely, we enjoyed our morning coffee with the birds. Also enjoyed watching an evening movie on the big TV in the cosy snug. Great selection of DVDs, Xbox games and board games. Kitchen very well equipped. Local pub was very welcoming and the beer was excellent. Only slight draw back for us was a lack of good local walks from the house.

  • "First class property in every way."

    One of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in. The property is beautiful and immaculate, fantastic lounges, which are exceptionally comfortable and brilliant for family getaway. The bedrooms have fabulous comfortable beds, which meant we all slept very well. This property is outstanding and the owners have literally thought of every single thing you would need and much more. Yorkshire is a place of outstanding beauty and so many places to visit very near to the property. If you expect the best of things from your holiday cottage then you will not be disappointed with this one. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property, as it was amazing. I can say with complete honesty that you can book in confidence and that you will have a first class holiday experience. We loved it so much that we wished we could have stayed longer than our week. See you next year.

    Hi Clare, we really appreciate your comments and we look forward to your return. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the beauty or Yorkshire. Sian & David Property Owner

  • "We had a very enjoyable stay in St Aidan's Court."

    The house is beautiful inside and outside with a lovely patio at the back overlooking open fields. It is a spacious and comfortable house and very well equipped - probably the best holiday accommodation we have stayed in. It is very quiet and dark at night which we loved and our bedroom overlooked the fields at the back which was lovely to wake up to. The maps provided in the house were very useful and we were out walking every day - we were lucky with the weather for November. Hellifield is well situated for exploring the area and the village has everything you need during your stay. We bought steaks from the farm on the edge of the village one evening and had fish and chips another. I would very much recommend anyone to stay here and we will return.

  • "We had a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage."

    It is in a super location in the small village of Hellifield and made an excellent base from which to explore the Dales. It was thoughtfully stocked and spotlessly clean. The view over the fields behind delighted my city children who loved watching the cats graze. Honestly, couldn't fault it. We will be back!

  • "The house was perfect for the six of us - my husband and I, our 2 children and their partners."

    The living room was a great space where we could easily cook, eat and sit together, and we were lucky enough on the first evening to sit on the terrace in the evening sun and meet the young cows as they made their way over to us. There is no more peaceful occupation than sitting on the terrace listening to the cows grazing the grass! The kitchen is wonderfully equipped for a holiday cottage and was a pleasure to use for the few meals we prepared ourselves. The snug was a real bonus, even in the summer, as it contained a second tv and the sofas were really comfy. The beds in the 3 double bedrooms were very comfortable, and with 2 bathrooms and a downstairs cloakroom there were no queues in the mornings. Hellifield turned out to be the perfect location, as it has a station on the main line between Leeds and Carlisle, and some of our group came by train. We also found it to be a great base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales. By the end of the week we realised that we would need to come back as there were so many more places to visit and things to do.

  • "Lovely cottage, homely and cosy."

    The owners have gone a long way to make this cottage a real pleasure to be in, full of character and individual detail in every room. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we could have needed. Gorgeous and peaceful rural views at the back, made it a real relaxing experience. Our daughter (which we hadn't seen for ten months) stayed with us, which was a real treat, we even had a long over due Christmas meal, including the crackers!!! The spacious patio with the well provided garden furniture gave us the opportunity to have family that live nearby over for a lovely afternoon cream tea, perfect!! Located in a lovely village, the cottage was in an ideal location to enjoy this part of Yorkshire. Highly recommended indeed!!!

    It had everything you need for a very relaxing break. The house was very comfortable with lovely views. We found that having a local shop, butchers and chip shop on the door step really handy. It is in a great location for some lovely walks and scenery and we would love to return again and explore other parts of the Yorkshire Dales.

  • "Absolutely fantastic find, my husband and I both turned 30 in the same week and wanted to get away with our dog to relax for a few days."

    We usually book lodges with hot tubs but the prices were ridiculous so we decided to try out this cottage. We were not disappointed, the house is beautiful! We brought a lot of our own things Such as pans, utensils and entertainment as previous stays (not Sykes) the facilities were never very good. However. This cottage had everything we could possibly need or want, from every cooking utensil, to sky, board games, books and even an Xbox in the front room. There is a lovely track to walk dogs, which is part of a 6 mile circular walk but if you don’t like to walk through cattle fields you can only get so far round. Our best walk was in Skipton woods, a few mins down the road in the car. We paid 4.50 to park all day (cheaper after 2pm) and the man on the desk was so helpful and directed us to the start of the woodland trail and gave us a map. All in all a fantastic break to chill out in a lovely home in the countryside. Will definitely be back.

    The Black Horse pub across the road was very nice, food was good and they had great range of drinks. House has it's own BBQ so we took advantage of the local butchers. The house is a good base but you will need to drive to see the local attractions. Malham Cove and Janet's Foss is a must visit. We also went into Skipton to have a look around the town and enjoyed a short canal boat trip. Overall we had a great stay, the owners were great and answered all q's we had before arrival.

My only critisism is that it is that well stocked with glasses, crockery utensils etc, there is little space in the cupboards for anything else ie groceries.

  • "Having stayed in many cottages throughout Great Britain, this cottage far exceeded our expectations."

    Too many times photographs using a fish bowl lens deceive. In this case, the rooms were far bigger than expected, the quality of furnishings were nothing short of excellent. Our stay was wonderful, and our rest hours here and there where whiled away with a brew on the patio area watching the highland cattle come and go in the adjoining field. There was adequate storage space for food, an extra fridge in the small garage, also in the garage hanging hooks for three bikes and room for a few more besides. Ample storage for clothing in the very new and high quality wardrobes and drawers, and a large shoe / bootrack. We watched stars laid on bean bags looking up through the glass bay roof, and also laid on the bed in the high vaulted en suite room remotely opening the velux blind. Everything has a touch of quality, it’s like someone’s furnished and kitted this cottage out to live in, not to rent out to strangers! There’s even an extra outside tap for cleaning your boots, there’s also a fantastic heavy duty large charcoal barbecue. We’ve just got home after a week, and although due to the end of the school holidays and the price being close to peak, we feel as though we have had nothing but excellent value. We used the local pub (Black Horse I think) a couple of times but not for food, we was too late for the Sunday lunch, but it looked lovely as they were putting it all away. The local shop has all the bits that we needed, we always forget something and whatever your pastimes, all the jewels in the Dales can be easily accessed via car, bike, even the train station is only a ten minute walk away. We’ve just had the best week away, three generations, young and old, do not hesitate to book this fabulous cottage, you will not be disappointed at all.

About the location


  • Settle 6 miles
  • Skipton 9 miles

The village of Hellifield lies between Settle and Skipton at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It's a thriving, small community with a local pub, scattering of small shops, a renowned butcher's and historic railway station. The village nestles amongst the most picturesque rolling countryside, beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - a region of scars, cliffs, caves and potholes. Hellifield grew as an important agricultural centre, where the moorlands of the Dales meet the pasturelands of the Ribble Valley, and boasted one of the most important livestock markets in the North of England for many years. It later developed into a railway centre and the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Skipton and Malham. Hellifield is in the midst of excellent walking country and is a good base for touring the Dales, the Lake District and the Forest of Bowland.
