  • "Really enjoyed our stay with Michelle and Greg and the welcome pack is a nice touch."

    Comfortable sofas and a very warming Woodburner made our stay cosy and chilled. The wide-screen TV was also a bonus as was the the lovely peacocks and friendly dogs....a great place to stay...highly recommended!

  • "Lovely cottage in a fabulous position for many walks."

    The owners were very welcoming and extremely helpful. Upon arrival we were greeted by Michelle and a fabulous welcome pack was in the cottage for ourselves and our 2 dogs. Highly recommended and extremely good value for money.

  • "Delightful location and accommodation carefully curated by thoughtful and friendly hosts."

    Exceptionally dog friendly and provides unrivalled access to the Dales. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and immediately booked another week in the summer. Definitely one to remember and return to regularly.

  • "Lovely barn, lovely surroundings, very welcoming too."

    With short drives or walks from the house I visited the Ingleborough waterfall trail (much better than it sounds), Hull Pot on Pen-y-ghent, Stainforth Foss, Catrigg Foss, Scaleber Foss, Norber Erratics, Fountains Fell and Booths Supermarket in nearby Settle (definitely an upgrade from Morrisons!) I like dogs, so that was a bonus.

  • "A lovely venue for the walking holiday we were seeking."

    This is a very well appointed barn complete with peacocks, and is handily situated a couple of miles from the town of Settle. A thoughtfully stocked "welcome box" was an appreciated bonus on our arrival. The river Ribble runs nearby, and the Settle - Carlisle railway actually runs under the paddock in front of the site owner's house (a stipulation made by the early Victorian owner back in the day). Excellent walking routes in all directions from the barn with several nearby hotels and restaurants to help with the recovery on your return - as did the hot bath back in the barn.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay and such a fabulous loaction."

    Walking distance to Stainforth/falls and the really interesting Lime Kilns. Short drive to Settle. If you like cheese, you are 10 mins drive to a fabulous cheese and wine shop! The cottage is also located well if you want to do the 3 peaks. I just did a Pen-y-ghent circular, seting off from the cottage front door. It was great for our Border Collie, but just be aware tthe garden isn't enclosed. I put him on a 10m long line which served well. He was rather bemused by the peacocks LOL.

About the location


Malham 6 miles; Skipton 17 miles; Kendal 25 miles.

The bustling market town of Settle lies at the south west rim of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, nestled beside the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - a region of scars, cliffs, caves and potholes - amongst some of the most picturesque scenery in North Yorkshire. Tuesday is market day in Settle, when the square is filled with stalls offering a wide variety of crafts and goods. The market place is surrounded by local businesses, the centre being dominated by The Shambles, an historic three storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. There is a good selection of restaurants and pubs and a public swimming pool. The Victoria Hall has entertainment and other activities such as folk nights throughout the year. 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. Settle 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.
