  • "A very well equipped cottage in an idyllic village."

    The cottage is cosy, has everything you need, and was more than suitable for the three of us (two adults and one child). The owners were very pleasant and really helpful with questions and directions to local amenities. Giggleswick is a lovely and friendly village. The nearby children’s park is a great space for little ones and there is a well stocked supermarket in Settle which was reached 10 minutes on foot or 3 minutes in the car. There are a couple of decent places to eat a short walk away and even more options in Settle. Would recommend the cottage.

  • "We had a wonderful time here."

    The cottage was so cozy and warm and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. We were excited to have a sharp knife to cut through vegetables. (Its the small things that mean alot) as well as the thoughtful gifts milk, cookies and coffee and gorgeous flowers. The pub next door is being refurbished and we enjoyed chatting with them. The walk into settle by the river was beautiful. We highly recommend the chip shop opposite the co op petrol station in settle. Ingleton waterfalls was spectacular. The owners were in contact with us through week and at the end of our stay. ( sorry not returned call) we will definitely be returning.

  • "It is advertised that Giggleswick has 2 pubs - yes it does, but the one next to Black Horse Cottage (Black Horse Pub) has been closed for 3 years!"

    and is presently going through a total refurbishment. Fortunately, this did not affect the enjoyment of our holiday as we were out hiking each day. I feel this should have been mentioned on the website.

    Only downfall would be a lack of garden but otherwise can't fault it. Owners were very communicative. Would go back again.

  • "Loved the proximity to public transport only a 15 minute walk into the centre of Settle, was made to feel welcome by the owner, cottage had everything we needed and more, the best equipped kitchen we've ever had in a holiday cottage."

    Lots to do in the area, so much that we want to come back to do the things we ran out of time for.

  • "Disappointed to hear that there was no washing machine 48hrs prior to arrival."

    Also stated that there was a dvd player and a radio /cd neither were in the cottage. Nearest laundrette is in settle and the public can only use during certain hours. Pleasant scenery, good places to eat nearby. Recommend Matteos in the market place and Shambles for fish and chips

  • "Superb cosy cottage, home from home."

    Everything you need. Most relaxing village and cottage we have ever stayed at. Could only hear the toned down church bells and the sound of chirping birds. Pub next door has been closed down for a while so don’t know how it would affect the noise. Pub up the road called Harts Head has a lovely relaxing beer garden, it’s a sun trap, overlooking Giggleswick School and it’s chapel Dome. Been on all the fells and hills lovely views. Walked over to Malham and back. Caught train from Settle to Appleby lovely scenic journey about 50 minutes, across the viaduct as well. About 10 minutes walk to a busier Settle. Nice to come back to the cosy relaxing cottage after a full day out. Going home refreshed, relaxed and felt so close to nature there. Thank you Ann so much for your hospitality. Julie & Steve

About the location


Settle 1 mile; Malham 6 miles; Skipton 16 miles.

This delightful Ribblesdale village lies below a limestone scar (part of the Craven fault) and just across the river from the bustling market town of Settle. It’s an incredibly pretty place with sturdy houses and cottages, many dating back to the 17th century as the ‘date stones’ over their doorways will confirm. Today the village is still centred around the beautiful St Alkelda’s church, which dates back to the 12th century and the well-known landmark of the domed chapel at the famous Giggleswick School, which dominates the village skyline. Giggleswick itself has two pubs, whilst the wide ranging amenities of the nearby market town of Settle are within easy walking distance. Further afield is the town of Ingleton with its splendid waterfall walk and of course (for the serious walker) the Three Peaks are nearby.
