  • Wonderful setting in this lovely village with nice church, wonderful views of the hills and great walks all around the hills and town of Settle.

    “Nice pub just over a mile away at Stainforth. Easy walk of about a mile to Settle for cafes, pubs, fish and chips and shops”

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.

Langcliffe is a charming Dales village 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. Part of the Yorkshire National Park, with its stone cottages clustered around the spacious village green, Langcliffe is tucked away in a backwater, with a beautiful old church, and there is excellent walking in all directions. The nearby market town of Settle boasts a good selection of restaurants and pubs and a public swimming pool. The Victoria Hall is a Community Centre with music and book fairs, theatrical productions and auctions, plus Settle country market takes place every Tuesday with a farmers’ market each month. The famous Settle-Carlisle Railway crosses some of the most beautiful and inspiring upland scenery in the country. Settle has a challenging golf course and cycle hire, horse riding and fishing are all available locally. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are nearby 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.
