    The location is excellent for walking. First impressions of the cottage were a bit of a surprise. The setting can probably be best described as 'authentically rural' and 'ramshackle'. The inside of the cottage is comfortable and we had everything we needed. The Sykes listing for the cottage said there was parking for a car. But the owner of the cottage advised us not to park in front of the cottage, but instead use a car park in front of the nearby pub. The houses around the cottage had their cars parked in front of them, so we couldn't have parked in front of the cottage if we had tried. The car park we used was very close to the cottage however (about 40 metres away), so this was not a problem. The local pub (The Helwith Bridge) is really, really close (again, no more than 40 metres). If you stay at Wagon House you must eat in the pub. The food is simple, very good value and very tasty. The portions are large. Try the Helwith Bridge Special Burger, it is huge.

About the location


Austwick 1.5 miles; Horton-in-Ribblesdale 2 miles; Settle 4 miles.

Situated in the heart of the famous Three Peaks area of the Yorkshire Dales, Helwith Bridge is a tiny hamlet with a village pub set opposite the tranquil waters of the River Ribble. The surrounding countryside is magnificent, offering the ideal location for fell walking and mountain biking with the famous Three Peaks providing some of the most challenging walks in the country. The famous Settle-to-Carlisle Railway passes through the hamlet and along the nearby Ribblehead viaduct. A magnificent structure completed in 1870, the sight of a steam train passing across the top of the viaduct is one not to be missed. Nearby Austwick has a wonderful village shop and an award-winning inn, whilst the village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale contains a lovely Norman church and two pubs. The nearby market town of Settle, just four miles down the road, offers a wide variety of pubs and restaurants, whilst the market square is a real delight featuring the three storey Shambles, with shops on two levels and houses above. Settle Victoria Hall provides all types of entertainment from cinema to folk evenings throughout the year. Other local attractions such as Malham Cove, Gordale Scar, Clapham Cave and Gaping Ghyll are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Skipton and Malham and the delightful villages of Ingleton and Hawes.
