    The location was peaceful even being so close to the railway line which did not disturb us at all and particularly interesting for my railway enthusiast husband..The neighbours were friendly and the weather amazing so all in all we had a wonderful week. Glenys

  • "A really lovely stay."

    The cottage was clean and stylish, very comfortable. The owners were friendly and welcoming. We loved the ambience and the natural environment. The landscape is stunning and there are plenty of things to enjoy in the area. We walked, climbed mountains went down caves, shopped in Booths! Altogether superb.

  • "This is a very lovely cottage hidden away in a mini valley formed on one side by the railway embankment and hills to the front and other side, The neighbours were very nice and friendly, you will see ducks and a chicken that regularly patrols the close proximity of the area, this is paradise in a very confused and unsettled world at this moment in time!"

  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting with everything you could need for a comfortable stay."

    Extremely clean & well equipped and Gayle the owner took time out to call and explain entry details and all the things to do in the area. On arrival she’d left a cake, wine & beer which was a nice touch.

    Great to see the House Martins zipping in and out of their nests too. Absolutely fabulous location for walkers. Beautiful limestone pavements, mountains and fells on your doorstep. Also not far from Settle, Ingleton and lots of other Dales towns. A privilege to stay here.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at 2 Railway cottage."

    The cottage was absolutely spotless, extremely well-equipped and very cosy. It is also well situated, being very near to all the walks we had planned to do and to the lovely town of Settle, which has a great choice of quality independent shops. It was a pleasure to return to the cottage after a long walk to relax in front of the fire on some very comfy sofas! We greatly appreciated all the maps and books on the local area and all the extra touches (lovely cakes upon arrival, luxury blankets and beddings, extra logs for the fire). We hope to be back soon!

  • "Excellent cottage, in wonderful location."

    We have a lot of self-catering holidays and this cottage met all of our high expectations. It was very clean, very comfortable, well equipped without too much clutter, it had useful information without overkill. The owners were very friendly and helpful but didn't interfere with our holiday. The photos on the Sykes website are all accurate and the views are as good as they suggest. Excellent holiday and accommodation. We will happily return.

    There was scones and jam/cream with wine and beer waiting for us along with tea and coffee and milk and a bottle of water. The cottage is stunning and well equipment and spotless with a lovely log burner. The views are gorgeous. Didn't want to go home :( would definitely stay here again

  • "The cottage is extremely clean and well laid out, with everything the holidaymaker needs."

    The beds are comfy, the railway, which is only yards away is no problem at all, we didn't lose any sleep, you hardly hear the trains. The cottage is ideally placed for touring the Dales but you have to drive to the pub. A warning to potential users, there are a lot of motorcycles about at the weekends with a very diligent speed trap in Horton in Ribblesdale. You have been warned, we were'nt. All in all, a lovely week in peaceful surroundings, shame about the speed trap.

  • "Wonderful,cosy and rural cottage."

    Ideal base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. Gorgeous rural location in the Dales, adjacent to the Settle -Carlisle railway. Very peaceful ( trains infrequent) , cosy and warm. Beautifully decorated with well equipped kitchen and fantastic bathroom ( shower lovely and warm, but no bath) Beds really comfortable. Spotlessly clean. Wood burning stove great on autumn evenings. Great location for the 3 peaks, or just for exploring the Dales in general. Lots of places to eat / cosy pubs in nearby Settle and Kirkby Lonsdale. Very impressed with the owners who left a welcome pack and also took the trouble to ring prior to our arrival with helpful tips and suggestions for our stay. We’ve stayed in several holiday cottages over the years - this has been the best! Would recommend 100%

  • "We had a brilliant week in a beautiful and convenient location."

    The cottage was very well appointed, freshly refurbished and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and the welcome was warm with scones and jam awaiting us at the end of our journey. The towels were super fluffy and outside seating areas at front and back were useful with great views. We were able to walk up Ingleborough directly from the cottage and Pen y Gent was easily accessible too with a short drive into nearby Horton in Ribblesdale. The only thing we would add would be a handrail on the stairs. Our legs were so sore after all the walking, something to hold onto on the way to bed would be useful. Otherwise faultless

In fact, we felt so at home and relaxed that we booked a second visit within hours of our arrival!

About the location


Settle 6 miles; Ingleton 10 miles.

This beautiful Ribblesdale village sits within the National Park and provides home to lots of pretty traditional Dales buildings, a lovely Norman church and two pubs. The surrounding countryside 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-Carlisle Railway passes through the village and passes 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 nearby market town of Settle offers a wide variety of pubs and restaurants whilst the market square is a real delight featuring the Shambles, an historic 3-storey building with shops on two levels and houses above, and the Town Hall. The Victoria Hall is a cinema at weekends (Fri & Sat) and offers other activities such as folk nights throughout the year. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Skipton and Malham and the delightful villages of Ingleton and Hawes.
