  • "We greatly enjoyed staying in the cottage."

    Lovely large bath and comfortable bed. All necessary cooking equipment. Wonderful mounted photographs of the area on the walls. Langcliffe village is truly beautiful and quiet. The majestic beauty of Malham Tarn and Cove are only a short distance away. Very useful information regarding the cottage emailed in advance by the owner.

    We did many walks from the door. The owner provided us with so much relevant information . So many places just leave a heap of leaflets. I felt the owners would have been very helpful if we had needed assistance. Pleasant walk into Settle for all your needs.

  • "Comfortable stay in quiet little village."

    The only thing missing was outdoor space to sit in.

    Many thanks for your feedback it is much appreciated and we're glad you enjoyed your stay. During the summer months guests are able to sit on an outside bench below the front window, there is also a beautiful green with benches only a couple of hundred yards from the cottage. These are illustrated in the pdf I send out a week before guests arrive. Property Owner

    Hair found on mattress protector (not ours), cob webs and layers of dust and hair around the property. The oven dirty and unable to use. Fridge not working property therefore made our food soggy.

    A lovely cosy place with everything we needed for our stay. Great location for walking or a wander into Settle for some pub grub. Peter was a great host, sending plenty of info ahead of our stay and then checking in on us by text when we arrived to make sure we had all we needed. We didn't need to use the woodburner as the heating was enough but bear in mind you need to provide your own wood if you do wish to use it. Cottage otherwise well equipped and some excellent photo canvasses on display showing the area off brilliantly. Would definitely recommend and happily return.

    This was a big disappointment and rather dampened our expectations and so we did not take our bikes as storage and security is of great importance. Otherwise a pleasant cottage.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. The bike storage information should have been removed early than this. Apologies for any inconvenience this caused. We are very pleased you still enjoyed time at the cottage and we hope to welcome you back again in the near future. Property Owner

The property

Resting on a quiet lane on the edge of the charming village of Langcliffe, just outside of Settle on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, is Winskill Cottage, a charming cottage surrounded by picturesque rolling countryside.

This property is ideal for a couple or small group of friends looking to spend quality time together exploring the stunning countryside of this region of Yorkshire.

Step inside the property to discover a welcoming open-plan living space, with a fully-equipped kitchen decorated in neutral hues with a splash of vibrant red paint providing the perfect space to cook delicious home-cooked meals, to be enjoyed together at the dining table, before retreating to the sofas to relax in front of the woodburning stove with a good book from the bookcase or with a movie night on the wall mounted TV.

When sleep is calling, retire upstairs to the good-sized king-size double bedroom, served by a bathroom with bath and shower over, so you can enjoy the choice of a long soak or quick rinse in the shower to begin each day.

Explore your surroundings on foot, with several public footpaths taking you through the Dales' finest scenery from your doorstep, while the River Ribble flows close by and offers lovely riverside strolls up towards Stainforth Force waterfall and the hiking area of Catrigg Force.

The surrounding area of the Yorkshire Dales boasts the largest outcrop of limestone in Britain - a region of scars, cliffs and caves, with Jubilee Cave and Victoria Cave close by.

Move downstream towards the bustling market town of Settle, just a mile from the cottage, with its charming market square, town hall and wonderful selection of independent shops.

Catch a show at the traditional theatre, go for a swim at the indoor pool, and be sure to take a trip along the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway, passing the Ribblehead Viaduct and some incredible upland scenery.

Head to Ingleton and embark on the four-mile trail towards its magnificent waterfalls and the nearby White Scar Cave, the UK's longest show cave, filled with caverns and waterfalls, and why not take on the challenge of a hike up Ingleborough, where you will discover a historic fort and Iron Age ruins?

The picturesque village of Malham draws in visitors far and wide to see Malham Cove, a natural cavern of limestone rock that stands 75m high, with a steep set of man-made steps to climb that will reward you with views towards Malham Tarn, the highest natural lake in the Pennines.

The Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offers a plethora of walking and cycling trails to enjoy; choose to wander through the enchanting Gisburn Forest, take on one of the award-winning mountain bike trails or go horse riding, before stopping off for a peaceful picnic.

With so much opportunity on your doorstep, Winskill Cottage is ideal for a couple of adventurers wanting to explore the astounding Yorkshire Dales.
