  • "We had a fantastic stay here for a long weekend."

    The house is lovely, with beautiful views out of every single window. The pictures don’t do it justice! Great to be able to do plenty of walks from the front door too!

  • "The property was lovely and ideal for our family break."

    Three families all together for a week and we had plenty of space and privacy. The en suite bathrooms were a great size and the bedrooms had plenty of space for everyone. The dining area was much more spacious than the photographs made it appear. We had five children aged from 7 - 15 years and they all played outside and had ample space in the large shared bedroom upstairs for sleeping and keeping them entertained. Only three used it as a bedroom but it would have been equally as comfortable with four occupants. The kitchen was well stocked but, as other reviews mentioned, the cooking facilities (oven and hob) would have benefitted from being larger (double oven, separate grill etc) to more easily cater for a party of twelve. We were only ten and we had to get creative with dinners. We fed the children first most evenings before cooking again for the adults to make it work. The owners next door were very helpful regarding a tea spillage and feedback about a small maintenance issue. We would highly recommend the property for a large group based on all of the above and the location being excellent. The driveway down was bumpy but to be expected on a working farm with agricultural traffic using it.

    Opportunities to enjoy numerous walks direct from the cottage. Judith was really responsive when we had any queries. Spotlessly clean.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Dale house farm It is situated in a great area to explore the countryside, and our visit to White Scar Caves just a 2 minute drive away was fantastic."

    The house was lovely and warm and very clean. The owners Judith & Simon we're very helpful throughout our holiday but communication was quite slow before & after our stay which was a bit worrying at times Just a couple of things that could do with attention. The chairs in the dining area could do with felt bottoms as they made that dreadful scraping noise on the stone floor every time someone moved. Coat hooks & a shoe rack in the entrance or in the hoover cupboard would help greatly with such a large group to accommodate. The double bed in the room with the mezzanine floor was very hard and could benefit from a mattress topper. All other beds in the property we're comfortable. Where the driveway meets the main road definitely could benefit from some maintenance. There were large potholes and we skidded every time we entered or left the property This was quite dangerous when entering such a fast stretch of road. My only reservation to staying again as a big family group with children! would be the worry of spillages on the kitchen/dining area stone floor. This is a beautiful stone floor and required specific cleaning solution that was kept at the owners property next door. It meant that we couldn't fully relax as we didn't want the added expense if it were to be stained by accidental spillages. (Maybe a big mat in the dining area would be an easy affordable solution) I hope these suggestions will be helpful for the future Best wishes Katie & Family

    The cottage is beautiful, well maintained and clean and has all required amenities. Beautiful area for walks with many places of interest nearby. Very helpful hosts. Hope to be back in summer.

  • "Very well appointed accommodation in a magical setting with so many things to do in the area."

    The only recommendation for improvement would be that the drive to the main road should be upgraded. The track is very rough and whilst no impediment to those with an SUV , visitors with lower cars or sportscars can ground on the rocks or potholes.

  • "We found the cooking facilities very inadequate For 12 people."

    Oven had only 1 shelf & a grill tray. We had expected a range with double oven. The state of the access road was dreadfull. There were more ruts & potholes than driveway.

    You can walk the 3 peaks directly from the house or travel easily to other local attractions. The property was exceptionally clean with all the facilities we needed. The views from the property are amazing and it was lovely to see the farm animals nearby. I would definitely recommend this property and would love to come back next year.

  • "We booked this cottage as a base for a group of work colleagues completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge."

    Only a 15 minute drive from where we were meeting our guide the location was perfect. The views from all sides of the cottage were stunning and the farm animals wondering around added to the experience. The cottage was spotless and had everything we needed for the weekend. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable and the under floor heating of the ground floor gave it a more luxurious feel which we all appreciated on the chilly September mornings. The owners of the cottage only live next door which was helpful when one of the group sustained a nasty leg injury and had to pull out very early on. They supplied ice and made sure she was comfortable.Very friendly and happy to help!! I would return to Dale House Farm Cottage without hesitation (Maybe for a relaxing weekend away) rather than spending 12 hours on a mountain!! Everyone in the group agreed we would recommend the stay!! Thank you for having us!!

Undoubtedly the best property we have stayed at, the children loved seeing the animals and the owners were only too happy to show them to us. We can’t wait to go back.

  • "This was a brilliant house for a large group."

    We had 3 young children and a baby with the 7 adults. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly and on hand for any problems, which fortunately we didn't have. The children loved the animals, space to play and the pedal tractors. Inside there was plenty of room.The bedrooms suited the families with young and all were extremely comfortable. Downstairs the kitchen/diningroom was practical and also a good space to be sociable. The kitchen was very well equipped and conveniently laid out with plenty of room for 2or 3 people to work in at once. The sitting room was also very comfortable, a good space to have some peace and quiet when needed. Ingleton is just a few minutes away in the car for food shopping and we found plenty of quiet spots for picnics and messing about in rivers only a few minutes away in other directions. All in all, young and older had a great holiday.

    Really clean and well presented with great facilities. Very near to White Scar Caves, the Waterfall Walk, Ingleborough and easy access to many other locations of interest. We were a party of 7 and really enjoyed our stay. A few little touches that would have made it better - a small supply of tea, coffee and milk on arrival and a hairdryer or two available for use. Maybe a DVD player in the lounge.

  • "Great cottage, with great accommodation and facilities."

    Two small niggles: 1) for a party of 9 (ours), the saupans were too small - a couple of larger cooking pans would have made life easier. 2) sign for cottage on the road very small, difficult to see the entrance to the farm in the dark. I will, emphasise these were small problems and did not detract from our very enjoyable stay

The property

Chapel-le-Dale 1.6 miles.

This delightful semi-detached barn conversion is surrounded by its own fields in dramatic open countryside, on the owner's working livestock farm near Chapel-le-Dale.

Set in a most enviable location in the valley between Ingleborough and Whernside, this lovely cottage provides an ideal location to get away from it all and unwind with family and friends.

Fully renovated, this attractive holiday home enjoys a beautiful hillside location with breathtaking views from every room in the house, including exceptional views of the limestone scarring, so evident in this corner of the Yorkshire Dales.

Individually styled to make the very best of the existing features of old beams and exposed stonework, there is also a liberal sprinkling of the modern luxuries, such as underfloor heating, walk-in showers and en-suites to all bedrooms.

The ground floor kitchen with dining area is a real delight with great views across the meadows and the grazing stock, plus the odd hen.

There is a spacious dining area, a modern well-equipped kitchen and a woodburner.

The sitting room has ample seating, a flat screen TV, and is a great place to recover after a testing day out on the Three Peaks Challenge.

The first floor boasts two double bedrooms, and a third double-height room with a king-size double bedroom and twin beds on a mezzanine floor, and en-suite with shower and bath.

One of the double bedrooms also has a Juliet balcony to enjoy the views towards Ingleborough.

The top floor has a spacious family room with four single beds and an en-suite shower, an ideal room for the kids to get together and enjoy a little privacy.

Outside this lovely cottage are open fields that belong to the property where you can sit, wander, barbecue or laze by the river that runs through the land; relax with a refreshing drink or dine alfresco.

Nearby Ingleton offers an excellent range of amenities, including pubs, shops and restaurants, whilst walkers are spoilt for choice with the excellent network of trails in the area.

The famous Settle-Carlisle railway line runs across the nearby Ribblehead Viaduct and there is no greater sight than a steam train powering its way across the landscape.

Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale and Skipton are all within a short drive, whilst the Forest of Bowland offers a wide range of unspoilt landscapes and visitor facilities.

A great location for family and friends to meet up and enjoy country living at its very best!

Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Ingleton 4.4 miles; Hawes 12.5 miles; Settle 14.7 miles.

Situated in the heart of the famous Three Peaks, Chapel-le-Dale is a small hamlet consisting of the Ribblehead Viaduct, a railway station, a famous pub and a scattering of small farms and dwellings. The surrounding countryside of Ribblesdale is magnificent, offering the ideal location for fell walking, with the famous Three Peaks Walk, Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough offering some of the most challenging walks in the country. The famous Settle to Carlisle Railway passes through the hamlet and has some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. The Ribblehead Viaduct, completed in 1870 is a magnificent structure and the sight of a steam train passing across the top is one not to be missed. The attractive village of Ingleton offers a good range of shops, pubs and places to eat. The centre of the village is pretty with narrow and winding streets, centered on a tiny market place. The village's well known White Scar Caves (a short walk away) are open to the public and have a dazzling display of stalactites and stalagmites, caverns and a huge underground lake. The Ingleton Water Falls Trail is a short walk downstream. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Hawes and Malham, as well as Kirkby Lonsdale and beautiful Dentdale. The entire Yorkshire Dales National Park is on the doorstep; Lake Windermere in the Lake District is also only a 40 minute drive.
